The License

My early driving skills.

Clay and I check out this old truck.

I am thrilled.

The day finally came around and we walked in and came out with the piece of paper.  Long before my Sixteenth birthday I have been looking forward to getting my license. And now the day has come and gone, but has left behind a milestone in my life. One I will always remember.

Sixteen doesn't feel any different than fifteen, however, a happy birthday is always a happy birthday. If you have been around me at all, you would have know 43 days ago that my birthday was coming up. I get excited.  Maybe a little thrilled because I never would I think of it as "just another day".   So, all that to say: I am now sixteen. I am still enjoying what is left of my enthusiasm, and looking forward to getting my license even more than I looked forward to make-up, and earrings, or getting my braces off, my permit, thrilling vacations, and who knows what else! The main point, I hope, is very clear. I was so happy to turn sixteen. I loved fifteen, but now it is sixteen's turn to make me happy.

You will also know when I get my license. :)

After opening the gifts, we went shopping at the outlets for the whole day! Happy day! Then we came on home to welcome in my grandparents for the holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Regency Dance

It was a magical night. I felt like Elizabeth Bennet all surrounded with curls, roses, and candle light.  My dance card was attached to my fan, my shawl draping down, and a wonderful dance partner, all of which gave the evening excitement. The beauty was delightful with the over-all sense of being set back two hundred years.
