We Fest With the Best

>> Thursday, April 24, 2008

It’s no secret that Doug and I love history. Our bookshelves are filled with history books, our vacations usually involve exploring ancient sites in foreign lands and we love ourselves a Ren Fest.

Before Doug proposed (in a very unromantic way) I had hoped he would propose at the Ren Fest in Minnesota. You see, we were going to be there for the Wine & Romance weekend and they have a wooing contest. I had hoped he planned to woo me from a stage with a proposal of marriage.

Nope. I think Doug likes the history of war while I like the history of chivalry. Whatever it is it works for us.

So every year when spring rolls around and renaissance festivals around the country begin to take place I find myself browsing websites for new renaissance costumes, accessories and ideas.

I spend way too much time on Renstore.com perusing their articles and blogs. And I won’t even go in to how long I can browse their huge inventory. In fact, I’m off to check out their selection of patterns. It’s been too long since I made a new gown. I’m a glutton for punishment, I know.
