Hubby At Smithfield....

Isn't He Cute.....
As many of you know my husband, Dan, is a re-enactor. He dons his 1770's clothing and accessories like a man on a mission and with a real passion. He loves our history and enjoys being a part of bringing it to life and living it. Recently he was at the Smithfield Plantation here in Blacksburg, Virginia for the fourth of July participating in a bit of our history. In a land of log cabins and physical hardship, Smithfield provided a haven of aristocratic elegance and became the social and political center of the country during the Revolutionary war. Dan loves the place and thoroughly enjoys the group in his company. I have yet to make it there but I will soon. In the mean time I get to see my better half (seriously) get dressed up and wear a huge grin as he sets forth to go play soldier! Oh and by the way....Dan throws a mean tomahawk!

He looks like he's having fun! I have learned so much from the civil war re-enactors who appear at the Quiet Valley Harvest Festival each fall in PA.

Isn't he just the cutest! I LOVE history. I wish I could pay a visit to your neck of the woods! I would go antique-ing, craft shows, visit museums, etc.
