Heroine of the Weekend

It's a holiday weekend, and I am supposed to be making appetizers for a cookout tonight but have spent too long reading this morning, so no time for a proper Heroine post! But I do want to celebrate the birthday (September 2, 1838) of Liluokalani, last monarch and only Queen Regnant of Hawaii (I loved touring the royal palace in Honolulu on a trip to Hawaii and found the history fascinating....) Check out more about her life here...and have a great holiday!

We visited her palace when we were on Honolulu last. It was such fun. So many things reminded me of Victorian and even earlier times. We also have a children's book on her that a favorite.
