The Rennies were my family. My favorite band played there. Some of my favorite acts performed there.
We eventually moved to Virginia. I eventually left the ex. I joke that he got Sterling in the divorce. With few exceptions, those Rennies are his friends now, not mine. And that ok.
I packed my Ren Faire gear away this year. It broke my heart. I haven't been to a faire in years.
I'd been wanting to get to MDRF this year (October 1/2 or 8/9), but between a new car and rent difficulties I don't know if we can now, and again it broke my heart.
And for people that don't get the Renaissance Faire experience, it's ok. I hope that someday you get to experience it as I have.
