“I loved you from the first day I saw you and if I hadn’t married you my life would have been tragic because the definition of tragedy is a waste . But ten years later, I love you so much more.”
♥ Jacqueline Kennedy in a letter to her husband, President John F. Kennedy, October 5th, 1963 ♥

I’ve never really understood the meaning of Presidents’ Day. Is it Lincoln’s birthday? Or Washington’s birthday? Are we supposed to just congratulate these men for a job well done, even when they all haven’t always done a good job? In any case, I’m not going to complain about a day off. I’m also going to take this day as an excuse to look at some glamorous photos of one of my favorite Democrats, President John F. Kennedy.
Enjoy, and Happy Presidents’ Day!
This is my favourite photo of the couple… because they’re in Newport, where Hammersmith Farm was (where Jackie spent a lot of her childhood after her mother married Uncle Hughdie), watching the regatta.
But there’s just something about this photo of the two of them… that I can’t quite explain…

50 years ago, John F. Kennedy visited Vanderbilt University (my school) to celebrate its 90th convocation. My grandmother was there to see him, as was my 5-year old mother. This article contains several rare photos of JFK.
The fact that my family was present for this historic event gives me goosebumps. If only I were alive then to see Jack Kennedy in person. Then again, if that were the case, I’d be really old.
