May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face…
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
**All photos taken at Shirley Plantation in Charles City, Virginia and Colonial Williamsburg.
Historical tidbit I learned at Shirley Plantation: Did you know that it wasn’t uncommon for portrait painters (and their entire family) to move in with their subjects?
Real Portrait Painters of the Thirteen Colonies. Would you watch that reality show?
I imagine the experience hastened the invention of photography.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
