Now that I’ve been blogging for over a year, some things are starting to come full circle, and this shoot is a great example of that. First off, I’m wearing practically the same outfit as I did in October, just with a different sweater and a bun instead of a bowler on my head. Second, I’m back in the same place at the same time of year.

My parents and I have an odd St. Patrick’s Day tradition: whenever the holiday rolls around, we make a trip up north and visit a little old village called Long Grove. It’s filled with historic buildings that are chock full of antiques and imported treasures and candies, and it’s a lovely place to spend an afternoon. There are some small Irish boutiques, and there’s usually a few Irish dancers jigging in the square, so that’s why we always go at this time of year.

A few things got in the way this year, so I went alone to take some pictures. I was too late to watch the dancers, but it was plenty nice to meander through the town for a while. Hopefully next year, we’ll get the timing down just right once more.
