Booking It Through History: First Ladies – The Jefferson Ladies

Thomas Jefferson, our third president, was a widower so his daughter filled in as acting First Lady during his presidency. Learn more about her and her mother - both named Martha! - in my new Booking It Through History: First Ladies 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.
