    I need to go, because of course I’m corset-ready, and the Gratin Dauphinois sounds to-die for! I haven’t had it since my past life regression. I’m there.

    Next week will be my daughter’s 40th birthday. She just moved here from California – she is now a first time grandmother and wants to be a part of her life. She has been trying so hard to find a job, so until she gets her own place, we are a bit crowded in my house.
    Her boyfriend is coming up to spend time celebrating her birthday, and going to this event would be so exciting.

    My first degree was in English literature and I used to study in Bath England, home to Jane Austin. She is my favorite!! I would also like to take a friend whose finances are not that great and probably would have a hard time spending the money :)

    Let us go through half-deserted streets, the muttering retreats of one-night cheap hotels and sawdust restaurants with oyster shells….

  38. Kory December 11, 2015 at 9:49 am #

    Never done or heard of anything like this, but it’s portland you got to try something new everyday. Too expensive for me, would be a great appreciation to experience this with this wonderful woman I met recently.

  39. Nicole December 11, 2015 at 1:22 pm #

    Oh I have the perfect dress! I love regnecy era and even know many of the formal dances!
