Back in the Shenandoah Valley; this is where hubby and I grew up— met in grade 4, co-editors of the school newspaper and good friends.
Daughter Kate is enjoying being with us, though she has work to do daily via computer.
We’re staying with friends who have young kids but I found time to pop in to Belle Grove plantation. The Hites moved in in the late 1700s and added to the house. Mrs. Hite was a daughter of President Madison.
Belle Grove is a fav spot for history and beauty and connects me to my childhood.
