Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage

Yesterday daughter and I headed out to Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage to meet the folks she will be working with as she does an internship with the Event Planning and Marketing departments.  Everyone was so nice and I am feeling certain that the experience will prove pleasant as well as educational.

The property is stunning…
