Throwback Thursday- Renaissance Festival

Hazzah! My friend Arielle (pronounced r-e-l) and I had one of our first friend dates at the Atlanta Renaissance Festival in 2007. I think we were both afraid to let our nerd-dom out in case we scared the other off. Luckily we have the same level of nerdiness so it all worked out good. We have so much fun when we’re together that it’s a shame we live so far apart.

We had spent the day walking around the venue where swash-buckling pirates performed, knights in shining armour battled for a maiden’s love, and horses paraded and danced around an arena. It was brilliant. We both wanted some memento of the day and we found the perfect items. We both got clay formations strung on a thin rope- mine was a pair of cat ears and Rel’s was little horns.

They blended into our hair and Rel’s were so subtle that they almost looked real! We wore them the rest of the day (which did end up hurting after awhile) even when we went to Rel’s friends house where her entire Indian family was having a meal and thought us silly. Oh, and my cat ears also matched my actual cat's ears. 

I think that day was the real start of our friendship, so it will always be special to me. Hazzah!!

  1. Hazzah, indeed! I am so awkward in that picture, but it was so much fun! Wish we were nearer, too.
