It's Tuesday!

I am in Washington D.C. celebrating a White House Christmas with Alice Roosevelt Longworth and her family. It has been almost a year since Alice Roosevelt married Nick Longworth and while things have not been all roses they are doing well, for now. After finally getting away from the control of her family Alice is finding that she enjoys spending time with them now. She is starting to come in to herself and it won't be long before she becomes a major political player, not just Princess Alice, one of America's earliest paparazzi stars. (It's Tuesday...Where are you?)

"Finally, Alice's dream was coming true: she had found a wealthy man, made him love her, fell for him in turn, and gloried in the culmination of her days as a single woman in the White House. Alice was toasted, congratulated, gifted with fabulous presents, remarked upon, photographed, followed by crowds, and almost entirely free from parental control." (pg 153) (Teaser Tuesday)

Ah - regardless of the time period, being almost free from parental control has always been so important hasn't it?
