Hello all! On this weekend ablaze with red, white, and blue, I thought you might enjoy an infographic on the subject of Presidential Interior Design.
Like me, I’m sure many of you enjoy reading about the history of the White House and its storied treasures—and getting a behind-the-scenes peek into some of the personalities who have called it “home.” I have a deep respect for the office of the President of the United States, although, sadly, I haven’t always been able to say the same about the men who’ve held the office.
Even so, a $100,000+ renovation budget for every new President? Am I the only one who thinks that’s a bit exorbitant? What do you think is a reasonable amount?
However you spend this Memorial Day weekend, I hope you’ll take time to remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Remember their families.
We can talk about the “fun” topic of Presidential Interior Design, but let’s never forget that—right this very minute—men and women are still putting their lives on the line to protect our freedom. They’re everyday people with families, and pets, and bills to pay. They laugh, and cry, and worry just like the rest of us. Sometimes their military service gives them a much-deserved perk; other times it unforgivably gives them the shaft. But every day, they get up again and go to work. They keep training for the assignment they hope never comes. Their families keep standing proudly alongside. May we do no less.
Thank you to my Favorite Fatigue Wearer and his family for the sacrifices you make to preserve my freedom!
