Booking It Through History: First Ladies – Martha Washington

It's the first month of my Booking It Through History: First Ladies project, and I'm doing a deep dive into Martha Washington. The original First Lady, Martha set the precedent for all of the first ladies to come. Read about her life, legacy, and how to walk in her footsteps in my blog post!

Historic Westover (Virginia)

As we begin the 2021 holiday season, now is a perfect time to visit historic homes to see holiday decor and hear stories of how those from history celebrated the season. One of my favorite places to visit this time of year is Historic Westover, one of the most beautiful 18th century homes in Virginia. Located along the James River, visiting its grounds and taking a tour of the home is a wonderful way to learn more about the earliest history of our country with your family.
