Tessa was so excited that she decided to climb up the front steps of the mayor's house and knock on his door.
I can't say that I blame her. I would really like to take a peak inside, too.
The Gratz Park Historic District is a beautiful area in downtown Lexington, Kentucky comprised of a charming city park, the old Lexington Library building, and several large historical homes.
It was a perfect summer day and the flowers were all at their peak.
When I went back to finish my undergraduate degree and then my graduate degree I worked at an historical home, the Bodley-Bullock House, in Gratz Park. The home, which was built in 1814 was headquarters for both Union and Confederate forces during the occupation of the city. These days the Junior League runs the home and rents it out for weddings, parties, and political events. It was my job to oversee the house during those events.
I loved the job. The house and all of the antiques are gorgeous and I loved meeting all of the people (plus I got lots of delicious catered food)
There were so many wonderful doors to knock on,
which at the end of the walk made for a very thirsty girl. "Hey guys, what's a girl gotta do to get a drink around her
Enjoy your day,
