Shades of Autumn: Discovering Beauty in Light and Dark. A Note From the Editor

The light is changing, getting softer. The trees are shifting colors. The pool toys are packed away, the sweaters are being shaken out of their mothballs. It’s finally autumn.

It’s been an incredibly challenging year. For some, grief is close and real. For others, loneliness lingers. For all, stress, change, and uncertainty are daily companions.

Amid all this change, the festival and faire cancellations, the abundant time in our homes, the idea of a lifestyle publication for women and femmes who love attending Renaissance festivals was born. Perhaps the idea began floating on the breeze when that first faire evaporated into thin air as cancellations swept across the country. We missed dressing up, lifting mugs of mead and ale in toasts to the company. We wanted to see our friends, our “fairemily,”to share our love of this crazy culture called the Renfest.

So a group of women joined across Zoom and Facetime to put together a magazine for all of us who love this world. We’ll be featuring women who are artists and entrepreneurs, we’ll be exploring difficult topics like diversity, we’ll be sharing recipes , crafts, books, and life hacks.

But mostly, we’ll be about creating connections and a space for new friendships with like-minded women. We hope you’ll join us!

With Warmest Regards and Multitudinous Huzzahs,

Kim Bryant, Editor-In-Chief, LadyFaire Living Magazine

A writer and storyteller by trade, throughout the course of my career, I have led with curiosity. Much like Alice, I love the opportunity to ask questions and look at situations through different lenses. It’s a great way to find unexpected solutions or new ideas.
