So in October, Amanda and I went to the Wedding of Miss Maggie Waterman and Mr Albert Roberts. So lovely, it was at The Hermitage, yes, President Jacksons' digs. Photos were limited, due to the venue but we had some lovely pics and were lucky to be invited as it was a select group. We were also very lucky to meet and stay with Mrs. Bennett Nelson who is most definitely one of my favorite people I have met.

Next up, The Duchess' Dinner. At the The Portland White House we had a a delicious meal, seriously elegant Bed and Breakfast with a staff of whom I can not sing the praises of this place enough for! The menu included rabbit and pheasant and good laughs and fun!
