Day in the Life, December 1, 2013

I've been so excited about this month's Day in the Life post that naturally I'm super late getting it up.  With the Renaissance Festival finally behind us, it's fast forward into the holiday season.  I think I pretty much speak for everyone when I say this time of year is cray-cray.  I've been busy with my day job, busy with Jack, and I've been busy trying to meet a deadline for my side job, along with trying to get the house ready for Christmas and all that jazz.  It's time to play a little catch-up around ye olde blog.

December's Day in the Life happened to fall on the closing day of the Texas Renaissance Festival.  Dennis and his Brother From Another Mother, Roger, own a couple of businesses out there, so we're there all 8 weekends of the festival.  Closing weekend is always bittersweet.  We all love Faire, but after 8 weekends of it we're all ready to pack it up and get our weekends back.  There are friends of ours we only see during the run of the festival, so there are plenty of "see you next year's" and those are never easy (although, as I get older and time passes faster, it seems to not be quite as bad).

I took a TON of pictures on the first, and I'm going to share them all in this post.  You'd know that already if you followed me on Instagram, go ahead, I'll wait.  I made sure to take and label the "official" hourly posts, and everything else was a bonus.  So come along with me for a day at the renaissance festival.  As usual, I didn't do anything out of the ordinary, I just went about my day and snapped pictures at the top of the hour.

  1. I love these posts - I saw the pics on instagram, but admittedly it is a bit more coherent here on site, since it's a single stream to follow all at once. Still, I love the day in the life posts. :)

  2. Yeah, all those "bonus" tags got a little cray-cray
