Andie (Princess Dumpling) and I have had just an amazing time the last few weeks. We got married in SL, then we had an amazing week long honeymoon on a secluded beach. So romantic and awesome <3

When we returned home, we decided that a new beach house was what we needed. We loved our little cottage but as Princess Dumpling so wisely observed, it's good to mix things up sometimes.  The first step was to lay out our canvas, which is this lovely beach house from Greymoon Designs.  They designed a great house, but made it even better when they allowed purchasers to modify it!  I've removed the little auto-curtain and replaced it with this massively cool barn door (behind me) from Apple Fall. The door is not sold separately, so we had to purchase the barn and strip away everything that didn't look like a cool barn door.


So there I was minding my own business when a stranger messaged me about the boots she saw in a certain vendor.  I don't work for any stores, but I can't resist helping those in need.  I guess I'm just cool like that.  I 'ported over to her and decided that I have no idea where the boots came from. This of course led to a boot search, and making a new friend!  Eventually we landed at Empire, where I found these incredibly sexy thigh-high boots.  These are called Datura, and they are priced so low that you get a fatpack with a great variety of colors for what some creators charge for a single color!


I think the white-washed theme of the beach house inspired me to put together this predominately white outfit.  The shorts come from Erratic, the carrie denim shorts.  Topping it off is the Jane Crop Top, from Addams. To break up the monopoly, I added a little splash of pale green with these Emmi Tights from C'est la vie.

While scouting locations for a special event, I rediscovered a place that had been on my radar for quite some time but I had never really gotten around to exploring.



This is one of the many beaches of Noelia Island.  It's simply beautiful and serene! There's several beaches to explore, a little dance floor, a gorgeous Italian villa on the hill, and even a little Buddha statue in a secret location.


It makes me so happy when I find sims like this, where the owners simply build for the sake of making something beautiful and then share it with the world.   Noelia Island is owned and managed by Ida and Lyshco Carlberg.

The little tree swing I'm sitting on has poses for singles and couples. It's from 8f8 Creations.

My mom.

I always felt like my mom was an old lady, even when she was in her 30's.  Dad was always the fun loving goofball that everyone gravitated towards, but I mostly remember mom as the serious one. Not in a bad way, as she was the one that was always available to listen to the problems of an awkward 13 year old trying to transition to an awkward high schooler. Mom knew how to have fun too, but she could not possibly compete with dad in that arena.  Mom was happy to be the rock of the house. The support system who prepared meals, washed clothes, cleaned up after an awkward 13 year old, and ran every unseen aspect of the house that needed running.

Mom is very different today. On some days she recalls events that happened 50 years ago with remarkable clarity. Some days she can't remember my name. My mom has alzheimer's. Her health has deteriorated quickly and we have had to sort her stuff to assist in the process of downsizing their living quarters. I'm viewing old photos of her from her younger days that I've never seen before. I easily reconize the loving face, but there's another dimension that I had not seen. Perhaps it's the face of a happy, carefree woman in her prime that has not yet experienced her first child. I recognize the love in her eyes, but there's a special lightness that is new to me. This is the puzzle piece that I knew had to exist somewhere, but for some reason was hidden from me.  This photo is a recreation of one I found while sorting out her things. I don't know why it was hidden for so long. Mom was a beautiful and stylish woman in the 60's.

Someday we will need to assist mom through her final transition and I will be there to listen to her speak of things that may or may not have happened, to help her remember my name, and to love her with everything that is within me.

I've had the idea in the back of my mind for many months, but only recently decided to jump in and give it a try. Roxy Music made some great music back in the 70's and came out with some great album covers.

Most of the covers were super slick high fashion, employing professional models. But this one, what seems like an opportunistic snapshot, was without a doubt their greatest. It's been recreated many times, but I have never seen a Second Life version. So I made one.

My amazing Andie agreed to do this with me, and our dear friend Trexy made our poses.  The lingerie comes from Erratic (bra is Stella, panties are Cerise), and both bodies are Maitreya Lara. Andie wears a Lelutka bento head, and I wear Akeruka. My hair is from Bold and Beauty, and Andie wears "Vent" hair from Lelutka.

Hope you all have a great weekend! Happy Friday!
