Another Tyger Princess Diary Entry from Estrella

Dear Princess Diaries,

I once thought my SCA family was pretty big. I knew people up and down the kingdom and even a few folks in other Kingdoms. But it's always expanding.

Last Fall I went out to Great Western War and was adopted into the Weastie family without whom we could not have survived this Estrella War. I will thank them all in a separate post as they deserve it, (and Ariah Hume deserves sainthood).

Then we became Prince and Princess and suddenly all of Zack Karabin s SCA family was mine as well. (Including actual family in the case of Jaymee)

And they have been such a gift!

It was killing me to be torn between the coasts and SCA friends this weekend. We both really wanted to be at Yevgeniya Pechenaya s Laureling, ESPECIALLY because of the ENGAGEMENT!!! His Highness and I sent her a "virtual vigil" message before we headed to site Saturday. (#MillenialReign)

Lada and Suuder have consistently been amazing assets to us, between arranging for retainers at Ôzurr's first solo event as Prince, to always checking in to make sure we don't need anything, to making us the most delightful Prince and Princess regalia coozies. Lada is so talented that even unconventional mediums like, say, puff paint become willing tools to her artistry.

Congratulations to my favorite Vicereine, Mistress Lada! You are a shining example of your Order! 💛

We raised a toast to your elevation last night with our favorite beverages.

All my love from the muddy lands of Atenveldt and Gilded Kisses,
Princess Fortune

Tyger Princess Diary 1 year ago today

Dear Princess Diaries,

I may be a princess, I may very much want to be a Disney Princess, but that Disney princess is most certainly not Ariel. 

You see, I wanna be where the people are (warm).
I wanna see, wanna see dry land again. 
Walkin' around on those... What do you call 'em? Oh. Pallets!
Sloshin' 'round in boots you don't get too far
Mud's too deep so we are jumpin', slidin'
Strollin' along down a (What's that word again?) river!

Mud where you walk
Mud where you run
Mud everywhere in this Kingdom of the Sun!
The water view's free
But wish I could be, back on dry land!

Soggy Love and Gilded Kisses,
Princess Fortune

P.S. Yes, His Highness and I (and most of our camp mates) are safe at a hotel.
