I love the Renaissance Festival. My hubby and I have been going to the festival every year, and that continues now with our daughter Momo. I dressed up Momo as an Autumn fairy last year, and she was adorable. This year I just did not have enough time to come up with something new, so I brought out the Autumn fairy dress that was worn last year only once, and updated it.

753 is a traditional Japanese event to celebrate and wish for the children's good health and growth. Typically girls are celebrated at the the age 3 and 7, while boys are celebrated at the age 5, though this varies with areas and family traditions. Children are dressed up in kimono or special occasion dresses, and go visit a shrine for blessings.
