PARF, and my college buddy Kristen and some of her friends! Saturday had been a strange day for me - it was the first time being at faire without a "purpose," and it felt weird. I didn't know what to do with myself. Sunday reminded me why I was looking forward to this season off. Last year when friends would come up to faire I'd have 30 or 40 minute breaks between shows, and I'd try ti spend those little bits and pieces with them but I was constantly running off. This year I could aimlessly wander with them and really felt like I was "part" of the group. Saturday was a little discouraging (I'm pretty sure the migraine didn't help), but Sunday made me feel better about the whole thing. Plus I'm filling in at one of my favorite booths this Saturday, which I'm pretty excited about!
Anyway, the weather, the company, and the day was absolutely fantastic. And people gave me a lot of Hard Core Cider and then took me into a hat shop, which seems to be the only way I buy hats. But I think it was planned against me, because I had just taken one of the girls into Moresca and she bought a corset. Financial payback is expensive, but the result was pretty awesome.
