First Renaissance Faire

Back when the NCRF was still a thing, and was held at the Raleigh Fairgrounds, Alysia dragged Al along and claimed it as birthday present. She was surprised he agreed, because this was before they were officially an item. It ended up being a fun time for both of them. Alysia’s mom made Al’s peasant so shirt so he’d fit in, and eventually even made him a kilt a couple years later! It was a random plaid, but he loved it and they still have it. :)
The coolest part about this particular ren-faire experience was that it rained heavily for a few minutes and they had to take cover in gypsy shop. The shopkeeper asked them if they were a couple and they said no. She said, “Well, don’t worry, you will be,” and she was right!
