Marie Antoinette ran to her husband, threw her arms round his neck and hugging him tenderly, told him: “I feel, my dear husband, that I love you more each day. Your honesty and frankness charm me; the more I compare you with the others, the more I know how much more you are worth.”

Working all day again today, but at least it’s time and a half for labour day!
And I got history tagged for my sun king post which is AWESOME! :D
See you tonight peeps, and then my three days off will begin!!!!
On this day in history, September 1st, in 1715, the reign of the infamous Sun King came to an end.
Louis XIV, who had been King of France for 72 years and 110 days, died of gangrene at the Palace of Versailles, four days before he would have turned 77. He left as his heir his five year old great grandson, who would reign as Louis XV.
Louis XIV’s reign still stands as the longest of any monarch of a major country in European history.
