For the start of the second day I got to sleep in since Samantha had to set up the sutlery in the vendor hall. I even had breakfast in bed! Mr Sekela had to go back to Gettysburg for a few items and when he did he brought me a package. It was from Anna Bauersmith! I love when packages from her arrive. Here are the two peices of millinery that arrived. One is s croquet ensemble hat and another a fashion sun hat.
I helped Samantha during the day then we got an early night since Saturday was going to be a long and exciting day.
We had to be in the vendor hall from 8am to 5:30pm on Saturday. Once the vendor hall closed we went and changed for the ball. Samantha and Mr Sekela had their portrait taken first. Then Samantha and I had one taken in our matching ball gowns. I will post the photos when we get them in later.
Sunday was a short and easy day. I was able to converse with my new friend Emily. Her guardian has just passed so was still dressed in mourning.
I was glad to be able to hopefully give her a small bit of comfort in this time of sadness.
We packed up at 2pm and headed home. I had such a fun weekend and I can’t wait for the next symposium in 2018?
