### February 25 On February 25, 1791, I was dancing the night away at a ball hosted by the famous Marquis de Lafayette—on my honeymoon! Even though I had been married to my lovely wife Eliza for only ten days, it hadn’t taken me long to realize that we shared a true passion for… dancing! The ballroom was filled with lively music, thrilling conversation, and of course lots of laughter. By the end of the night, I had become quite the proficient dancer, having taught many of my guests some unique steps that I had picked up during my travels around Europe. It was a memorable evening, one that I will never forget!
