Today is the second day of spring, and what arrived in my mailbox? An adorable spring treat from Miss Janice. She sent me this beautiful pocket notebook from the new Lilly Pulitzer stationery line!
Last night was my last night in Washington, and I went out for dinner with my parents at Old Ebbitt Grill, a family favorite downtown. We saw President and Mrs. Obama, and I made sure to tell Mrs. Obama how much I love her White House Home Vegetable Garden. It is the first vegetable garden at the White House since Eleanor Roosevelt’s victory garden in World War II. The idea is to provide a healthy diet for white house employees and the First family, and to increase cultural awareness of the need to conserve energy by consuming local foods.
