Well I can now officially scratch "attend a Renaissance Faire" off the bucket list. A couple weekends ago, a few of my friends and I packed ourselves into the car for a day trip north, to the Bristol Renaissance Faire on the Illinois/Wisconsin border. We didn't really know what to expect, but I think it's safe to say that all of our expectations were exceeded. It was so much fun! We drank mead, attempted to fit in by adopting terrible English accents and saying things like, "good morrow" and "huzzah!", and took in some of the greatest people-watching in the history of people-watching. This is definitely going to be an annual trip.
