I’m preparing for the annual birthday tea for dear George which takes place Saturday, February 22, at the replica of Mt. Vernon right here in my neck of the woods. The George Washington Inn is owned by Dan and Janet Abbott who are as hospitable and gracious as can be. They’re also devoted Washington fans and have guest rooms with a view of the ocean instead of the Potomac. Truly a spectacular place – even George himself would be impressed!

I always take my mom, shown with our reenactor friend above, and we spend a few hours celebrating. I had visions of donning stays and squeezing into my 18th-century dress but will save that for another day…

Happy 282nd birthday, George!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
