About me

Location Virginia
Introduction I'm in my early 30s and a Virginia native. My family has lived in Virginia since the seventeenth century, and I treasure my home state and its history. I love Virginia, love the southern/preppy traditions I grew up with, and I just enjoy living and learning. I blog about everything from history to cooking to preppy stuff to my perfumery hobby. I enjoy reading about people's lives and welcome visitors!

Probably my pajamas - that's the thing I forget most often.
