NOVA - NOLA - NJ - NYC

A Virginian married to a New Orleanian, working at a museum in Brooklyn. I brake for transit history and old churches.

Eating cake, watching the Roosevelts. Thinking up alternate realities where TR served three terms - would WWI and the Depression have panned out the same way?

Me: The crowds seriously applauded him for 45 minutes when he announced his third party? Who does that?

Husband: People didn’t have TV back then, you know.

The stained glass windows in the vestibule *might* have been the deciding factor for our apartment building.

How I feel when I have read too many mommy blogs about hellacious toddlers.

TRYING TO MAKE SMALL TALK AT A CONFERENCE

Tagging along to my husband’s conference next month. Nothing like being an Americanist in a room of British historians. I’m holding out for obnoxious troll comments because those are the most entertaining.

LOOK. IT’S AN INFOGRAPHIC FOR RUFFS. This coming from the fantastic French blog La costume historique—at least, I think they’re fantastic? I’m mostly looking at the pictures.
There’s also one that matches ruffs with collars, which is great.
Wish they ventured into the 17th century, but. Still. What a time to be alive.

Is it a rule that every ‘eighties’ decade is just NUTS??

yes.  yes it is.
