As a little child I had my first experience of the wonder that awaits when the festivals and fairs came to town and I have been hooked ever since. There is just something about the music, treats, and acts that amazed my little soul and that still does today. God made a glorious world with all types of people in it and you will never find a more eclectic group of people than at a renaissance festival. Last Sunday we went in search of merriment and found it at the Maryland Renaissance Festival.
The festival was just as grand as I remembered and I truly felt like I had stepped back in time. One of my favorite things at the festival was an old fashioned glass blowing demonstration. I was amazed at the beautiful creations that were made by the artisans by hand.
I took home a lovely little pink ornament that is in the picture below.
I met a butterfly at the festival and he was just as I imagined a proper butterfly would be. He had a wonderful sense of humor and allowed me to shake one of his many hands.
The festival was filled with delicious food and I believed that we sampled just about everything! My favorite treat was the Crab Pretzel which was a soft buttery pretzel with crab, melted cheese and Old Bay on top...yum!!
Taking time to relax and do fun things is inherently important to leading a well balanced life. Proverbs 17:22 tells us that "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones." So make sure that you do happy things that bring you joy!
Happy Sunday Sweets!
