Today I am trying something new. It's a mini pop quiz on one of the most iconic First Lady's in history, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
Truth is I have always been a history buff and my superpower of choice has always been time travel. And if that dream were to ever come true, my first destination (of many) would be the 1950's and 1960's- an era that continues to captivate me to this day.
So in honor of the new biopic Jackie, which I can not wait to see, below are some fun facts you may or may not know about this beloved figure in American history. One that exuded grace, intelligence, poise, and a sense of style most of us dream of.
The below questions are definitely lighthearted compared to the Oscar buzzed drama opening tomorrow, but my hope is that you learn something new and smile along the way.
Please comment your answers below and yes, there is a prize for whoever has all ten correct first. Have some fun and try to avoid Google... Enjoy!
