On November 1st in…
… 1512, the Sistine Chapel was debuted to the public for the first time.
… 1611, Shakespeare’s Romantic Comedy, The Tempest, was presented in London.
… 1800, President John Adams was the first President to move into The Executive Mansion, later renamed The White House.
… 1941, Ansel Adams takes a picture of a moonrise over Hernandez, New Mexico.
…1950, Pope Pius XII claims papal infallibility when he formally defines the dogma of the Assumption of Mary. (**sidenote** I had never heard of “papal infallibility” before. It explains a lot… that is all.)
… 1960, while campaigning for President of the United States, John F. Kennedy announces his idea of the Peace Corps.
… 2002, while attending a post-Halloween P J Jammy Jam, I first laid eyes on The Hubby. I thought he was smarmy. (What?!? He was wearing another woman’s PJs!)
Hands Down, it was the best date I could ever remember.
… 2012, I thank my lucky stars (though luck had nothing to do with it) that I’ve been fortunate enough to have known, grown with, and fallen in love with a wonderful man for the past 10 years.
(And thanks to Wikipedia for all the other November 1st happenings)
