Are you ready?
Here it is.....
Announcing Lord Abraham and Lady Elizabeth of River-Town!
They also have a "Miss Emma Woodhouse" contest for the young ladies. In years past my white nightgown has never taken me far in the competition. But this year my gold gown earned me a place amongst the five finalists! ME! Can you believe it???
This is all thanks to Barbara Sherman who took pity on me and my nightgown and offered to help me make a dress. I told her that if by "help" she meant she would make me a dress, then YES, I'd love it! She came through big time and I loved, loved, loved my dress!
The dancing was so much fun. I really would like for this style of dancing to make a serious comeback. It is so enjoyable because everyone can do it and they are set dances so you don't feel like an idiot hopping and bopping about not knowing quite what to do. The ladies are ladylike and the gentlemen are... well, gentlemen.
We are stunning.
I am a very, very lucky lady. I am so happy Abe can go and enjoy a night like this almost as much as me. He is a grand dancing partner and an even better life partner.
And I should mention that my hair was so much easier to do this year than last! And as a bonus, when I did the wild Sir Roger de Coverely reel this year, I didn't litter the floor with hairpins flying out of my hair.
