Little Women Picnic

I had such a lovely, lovely time today at the GBACG Little Women picnic that I had to post my photos right away! The venue was just as lovely as the last time I was there — a beautiful 1870s home with a large lawn with HUGE shade trees, plus beautiful gardens with flowers, a gazebo… Everyone just looked a picture — such beautiful dresses and dapper suits. Lots of sheer dresses that were frothy and fluffy and bonnets you could have eaten with a spoon. The weather was perfect, the food was yummy. Best of all, I got to be Meg March for the day! My day was really made by my fabulous friends, who played the other March sisters, Marmee, Laurie (well, Laurie slept on the lawn all day but we still love him), Kate Vaughn, Belle Gardiner, and more. We played parlor games, lounged under the trees, wandered the gardens, and took LOTS of photos. Just the most perfect day ever. Yay!

    Everyone looks really wonderful! So light and frothy!
    And your sleeves look prefectly balanced with the fuller skirt. Great look!

    Your dress turned out really pretty, especially with the bonnet. What a lovely event.

    My gosh, the whole event looks gorgeous. A number of those photos look just like impressionist paintings — Monet, I think it was — of ladies at garden parties. You all look lovely, and I hope you had a wonderful time.
