Labor Day is the unofficial end to summer, and I for one am ready for it! If you know me at all, you know that I am no fan of hot weather, and long for fall and even winter days year round. But I love the south so much, I’m stuck here for life! :)
Today I thought I’d share a few tips for getting the most out of this holiday weekend!
Lately I’ve been strangely drawn to rooms with twin beds. They used to give me I Love Lucy flashbacks, but now I can kind of see the merit in them. I wouldn’t want to sleep alone in a twin bed every night, but every now and then, it might be nice to get a little uninterrupted sleep.
Today’s Historic Southern Home is a little more famous than many I’ve shared. Monticello, located just outside Charlottesville, VA, was home to President Thomas Jefferson. The plantation sits in the Southwest Mountains just below the Rivanna Gap, and originally spanned over 5,000 acres. The Neoclassical-Palladian house includes 43 rooms and an octagonal dome above the west front of the building.
Thanks for hanging out while the content has been kind of light the past couple of weeks. I’m still settling into my new schedule, but so far so good. I haven’t had that “OMG what did I just do?!?” moment, but I have had that “OMG this is my life and I get to do what I love for a living!!” moment. I don’t hate it. :)
Now that I can work from anywhere, I think I need another visit to London.
Finally, a face palm emoji. And fingers crossed. And champagne clink.
