Inauguration Day Reminder! Do Come!

Martha Washington and I have been sprucing up Mt. Vernon for you! She thought it might be a good idea to remind you of the Inauguration festivities taking place this coming Tuesday! You are invited to all of the special surprises in store for you in Bloggington DC. If you would like to participate in an inauguration post, please just click on the invitation in the top right margin and leave a comment.

I'll be listing all of the participants on Tuesday so you can travel about in high style to the balls and other surprise festivities. Start here for a brunch at Mt. Vernon. I'll be listing all of the participants and providing your transportation so you may travel about in high style!

I've decided to wear the gown that First Lady, Helen Taft, wore for the Inaugural Ball in 1909. She attended the celebrations with her husband and new president "that adorable Will Taft". The Smithsonian is not doing another audit until January 28th, and I should have the gown back in place in plenty of time.

Do come and join us! Invite your friends! We'll see you on Tuesday. In the meantime, Martha and I are tightening up the brunch menu and polishing the china and silver just for you!
