Bite Size Memoir: Fairies & Magic

What is Bite Size Memoir? Bite Size Memoir is a new writing project created by Lisa Reiter. Here’s how she describes it: Bite size memoir is designed to help anyone record some personal memoir in small manageable bites. There‚Äôs a prompt every week and some constraints to keep it small… Feel free to dip in and out each week without commitment. Participants are given a prompt each week, then asked to respond with either a 150 word prose/poem, or 10 statements starting with “I remember” that are triggered by the prompt. I chose the prose route this week. While Lisa’s…

Row80 & a Ren Fair Redux

Ren Fair Redux As I mentioned in My Big Fat Ren Fair Wedding I got married last year at a Renaissance festival down in Waxahachie, Texas. This made planning this year’s anniversary celebration pretty easy; the festival gives us a built-in party to attend each year. I also thawed out the top of our wedding cake and much to our surprise, it was still moist and tasty. I forgot to bring my main point and shoot camera, though, so I could only take photos with my iPhone this time around. I love snapping pics with my iPhone, except that when…

My Big, Fat Ren Fair Wedding in Waxahachie, Texas

My Ren Fair Wedding Last year, Larry and I tied the knot – literally – at the Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, Texas. We plan to visit again for our anniversary, albeit a little belatedly, but I thought I would post a few photos from the ceremony and reception on my blog today. (I’ll post more photos and explain more about the festival in an upcoming post.) I have helped plan, decorate, set-up, and clean up for several weddings in my life, and I’ve gotta say: It takes a lot of time, energy and creative effort. When Larry proposed to…

Saturday Show & Tell – 7th Edition

Welcome to Saturday Show & Tell – the 7th edition. I have set this to post automatically because today, April 9th, I will be at Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, Texas getting married to the fellow I often mention in my blog posts. So if it takes me a few days to respond to comments, I hope you understand! First up in this week’s blog carnival is Jennifer Miner, who brings us a playful post called, Los Angeles Pillow Fight Day Photos. I had never heard of a public pillow fight before, but apparently: Los Angeles Pillow Fight Day is…

Saturday Show & Tell – First Edition

Welcome to the very first Saturday Show & Tell blog carnival here at Mental Mosaic: Food for Your Muse. This week’s edition features 6 posts. That’s 5 more than I was expecting since I popped this idea on everyone at the last minute. (Full disclosure: I got 2 more submissions through the Blog Carnival site itself, but they were both rather spammy, so I have not included them.) First up is a post entitled, Messy Imperfect Funny Love-Filled Life, which comes from Kyra, who wrote, “I couldn’t decide which post to send to you but I settled on one that…
