“word to the wise” wednesday: thomas jefferson

In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.

— Thomas Jefferson

As a proud UVA alum, I have a number of favorite Thomas Jefferson quotes, but this one — after which one of my favorite blogs was named — is one of the best!   Maybe next time I’ll tell you about the one I could recite in my sleep … that reminds me I really should hit the gym!   Or is chasing after twin boys considered enough exercise??

    What a great quote!! Seems like in the worlds of fashion and decor it's easy to get priorities out of whack - this puts it just right! You've inspired me to do a little Thomas Jefferson reading this summer. :) By the way, thanks for visiting Saffron Marigold! Glad you liked it.
