I should be better about posting pictures of the things I do. The most recent thing I owe pictures of is the fabulous 1812 ball! Last year we did a regency dance, and it was wildly successful but also kind of wild. This year the attendance was a little lower, but the quality of dancing was AMAZING. Somehow having a little extra room to breathe, and having more people who went to classes (yay!), turned this event from a mad crush into a wonderful party. If you were there, I congratulate you on a lovely evening, and great dancing!
I wore a new gold dress (gold isn't even my favorite color or anything... but somehow my dresses keep turning out to be gold!). I also wore a dippy hair style and a little tiara! Because I can do that. I was too distracted with dance teaching to get enough sewing done, so mother wore the same dress as last year, and I couldn't find Julia long enough to take pictures of her - she was too busy hanging out with the cool kids. I don't know when I got to old to be one of the cool kids, but it was pretty cool to glimpse them now and then anyway.
