A worry cross she picked up from Notre Dame, paired with a rosewood Rosary from the Vatican. “I’m so happy I was able to see Notre Dame before the fire damage,” she said. She purchased the Rosary in 2019 and displays it on her bookshelf. It still smells like roses. “They claim the smell of roses never goes away,” she said.Source:
A photo of the Duomo di Firenze, or the Cathedral of Florence in Italy. Montgomery wanted to see the sight, but cut her trip short because of weather and having spent time trying to find it. “By the way, I’m directionally challenged, ask anybody who knows me,” she said. “I can’t get anywhere.” Before giving up in the rain and turning around, her intuition told her to take a photo of the building. Later, she would discover the photo in fact captures the cathedral.Source: Courtesy of La-Tessa Montgomery.
A bottle of pirate rum from Montgomery’s trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. She would love to visit the Dominican Republic again, but go to San Domingo next time. This bottle of Mamajuana has vanilla bean pods to flavor the rum. “Because it’s painted, it’s considered a work of art, so it does not count against your liquor,” she said on U.S. Customs. “See how smart I am?”Source:
