{ When I met you in the summer }

Beachy-full_FINAL

Showing off the sunny side of Shiny Shabby with a dash of Summerfest thrown in and a sneak peek at some new “Sunning” poses w/prop towel from oOo Studio coming out this week for Fifty Linden Fridays!  GizzA also has these fanceh new shades that I just love (cuz I like to be fanceh 😀 ).  Which also happened to pair well with the gorgeous new Mohio jewelry set from Empyrean Forge.  And for indecisive girls like me, they both come with color-changing HUDs to match your look for the day. Yay!  Go get your beach on!

{ Lost Love’s Letters }

Some things you can’t go back to, some things need left alone
Don’t mess with a memories of a life passed on
Oh the tumbling reservations at the heart of my mistakes
Oh some things you can’t go back to cause you let them slip away

I don’t wanna be a witness to a path that’s overgrown
I don’t wanna see this house not be a home
‘Cause time has taken toll on what we couldn’t see
No I don’t wanna be a witness to the end of you and me

How am I gonna make each moment better than the last
How am I gonna make it better if I can’t go back

Oh the tumbling reservations at the heart of my mistakes
Oh some things you can’t go back to cause you let them slip away
Oh some things you can’t go back to

{ Going the Distance }

Argentina-Full_FINAL

I haven’t been blogging for a while.  I’ve been a bit preoccupied so bear with me and maybe by the end of this, you’ll understand why.   In Second Life, people come and go, it’s the nature of ‘the game’ (a term I use very loosely).  Our second lives often being dictated by our first lives and as it should be, but it can be hard to form relationships with people.  Along the way, if you’re lucky, you meet people that enrich your life in some way.  Maybe it’s through friendship, a common interest, love of shopping, or just being plain goofy.  And occasionally it’s through love.  I’ve seen it happen, these little fairy tales, where boy meets girl and they fall in love in SL, and even through the obstacle of distance, they find ways to persevere.  Maybe even for a lucky few, one day bringing that special bond into the real world.  Happiness is different for everyone.  But when you find it, you really need to hang onto it, enjoy it, be grateful for it, in whatever capacity you can and however long it lasts.  When you’re far apart, it’s all those little things that can matter so much.  A special message, a text, a smile, a photo, time spent together.  So this is my little tribute to “SL Love Long Distance”.

I, myself, am fortunate to have found it too.  It’s new and it’s wonderful and I’m just enjoying it one day at a time.  I hope he knows how much. 🙂

Usted es mi sol, mi única luz del sol.

Me haces feliz cuando el cielo está gris.

Nunca sabrás querida, cuánto te quiero.

Así que por favor no te lleves mi sol.
