This blog is going to be short. We’re packing up to leave our rental house in Ireland and I’m spending an inordinate amount of time gazing at the sea. Sigh. But I wanted to show you the sample ticket for the Duchess of Richmond’s Ball on June 13. Because of my travels, I don’t have it yet. It will be waiting at the door. Still, something for my scrapbook, because there will be my name written with all those other luminaries. The ball will be held at the Palais d’Egmont in Brussels, where we will have cocktails, dinner and dancing with all the other toffs in their white ties and regimentals. I’ll post the recap of my and my friend Sally Hawkes(the engineer has passed on the chance for tails and ties) the next day, but hope to post during the dinner itself. And tomorrow, for those who haven’t seen it, I’ll post a pic of my dress along with a bit more about the ball. You’ll have to wait for the full splendor for the ball itself.
And don’t forget to comment on my Facebook post today for a chance to win a signed copy of Barely A Lady along with a special gift.
