Well I can assure you that the only way to start your morning is to ride around Palace Green in a carriage.
This morning I participated in a Colonial Williamsburg photo shoot to update photos for the Horse and Livestock department. Not only was it an honour to participate in the shoot, but it was a complete pleasure.
As a hired seamstress (in the 18th century this means one who sews seams) at the Millinery shop I did not have access to the proper attire suitable for a carriage ride among the Gentry. I must give a huge thank you to Miss Sarah Woodyard, the current apprentice at the Margaret Hunter Millinery Shop. Like a true fairy godmother in my hour of need she kindly loaned me her incredibly beautiful blue gown. I must also thank Miss Angela of Burnley & Trowbridge for allowing me to wear her wonderful jewelry and bergère.
Later this afternoon a young boy came in the shop and asked for Lyze. Curiously he then handed me a note and directed my attention to the outside where James Monroe cut a very dashing figure atop his horse.
You could say today was slightly perfect.
