My Soft Place to Land

My Soft Place to Land

A soft place to land…we all need one.  I have a great one in my husband.  Now don’t get me wrong, sometimes he’s as soft as a brick if you know what I mean but that is to be expected in any relationship.  Not every day is perfect and there are times he makes me angry or just irritates me and I know there are times I do the same to him.  I don’t like picking up the jalapeno stems he constantly leaves on the kitchen counter and I know he doesn’t like it when I fact check him on things…like *ahem* the build up of co2 from a vent free gas fireplace for instance.

Even with all of that, he and I have far more perfect days than imperfect ones and I wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world.  I have learned a lot about relationships from him as well, most important I think is looking at things from the other person’s viewpoint….something that is not always easy to do when your emotions are in the way.  I have to remind myself that just because we are having an “imperfect” day doesn’t mean he has stopped loving me.  We can be angry with one another but that doesn’t mean the love is gone. He has stayed by my side through some major medical issues, provides a great life for the both of us, encourages my dreams, tells me he is proud of me and brings me a candy bar and a frozen coke several times a week as he comes home from work.  I hope he feels those same things from me..taken care of, respected and most of all, loved.

The North Wind Doth Blow

The North Wind Doth Blow

It’s a rainy day here in the southern US and rain always makes me chill easily.  I’m sure that can’t compare to Victoria here…sitting on that igloo surely has her buns nearly froze.  On the other hand, it’s Second Life, where you can be, see and do just about anything without worrying about the weather….Good thing because this outfit is totes adorable!  The Sweater Weather outfit is by HashTag and will be available at ULTRA which opens tomorrow, November 15th.  The pieces are sold separately and come in lots of color choices….great for mixing and matching.

A Knight’s Tale

Breaking Dawn

My Dearest Jocelyn,

It is strange to think I haven’t seen you since a month. I have seen the new moon but not you. I have seen sunsets and sunrises but nothing of your beautiful face.
The pieces of my broken heart are so small that they could be passed through the eye of a needle.
I miss you like the sun misses the flower in the depths of winter. Instead of beauty to direct it’s light to, the heart hardens like the frozen world your absence has banished me to.
I next compete in the city of Paris, I’ll find it empty and in the winter if you’re not there.
Hope guides me, it is what gets me through the day and especially the night, the hope that after you are gone from my sight it will not be the last time that I look upon you.
With all of the love that I possess I remain yours,

The Knight of your Heart.

The above is a letter written by William, a character played by Heath Ledger, with some help from his friends in the movie, A Knight’s Tale. It is one of my favorites and if you have never seen it, you must! You can see a clip of one of my favorite scenes here.  The knight in my photo was not nearly as good a dancer as Heath…in fact he was pretty “stiff”, pun intended. He is wearing classic granite and I am wearing a beautiful dress by *SK*.  The Zara dress will be available at the Sense Event which starts November 15th.

My Charlie Brown Tree

My Charlie Brown Tree

I love a Charlie Brown tree…you know, the poor little tree with hardly any needles and saggy branches.  If you decorate it with a joy and love filled heart though, its branches will hold all the weight of the weight of the world no matter how much they sag.  I am decorating this Charlie Brown tree with gorgeous gacha ornaments from Fetch. They will be available at Tannenbaum on the Christmas tree lot.  There are 10 different ones to collect.  My sweater is also by Fetch and will also be at Tannenbaum in the Holiday Market area.  Tannenbaum starts this Saturday, November 17th and runs through December 22nd.  All of your favorite designers, over 100 of them, will be there.  You don’t want to miss it.

Little Red….Corvette?

Little Red.....Corvette

Thinking outside the box, I put my own spin on this classic Little Red Riding Hood shot and I love the result. The pose is by Fashiowl Poses and is just one of many with a Red Riding Hood theme, perfect for this round of Enchantment. The theme is The Brothers Grimm so expect delightful fairy tale themed items. Enchantment starts today and Fashiowl Poses has 4 different sets with props included. The poses are very versatile and can be used in a number of ways on their own, something I look for in all poses. Be sure you don’t miss Enchantment..its magical!

Grimm Enchantment

Grimm Enchantment

I must admit, I am super excited for the upcoming round of Enchantment, which starts November 10th.  The theme is the Brothers Grimm and I can’t wait to see what all the creators have come up with.  I collect vintage childrens books and have several that are collections of fairy tales.  The Grimms Fairy Tales have given us the well known classics such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel and some of the more obscure but delightful, like The Goose Girl, Snow White and Rose Red and The Bremen Town Musicians.  The dress I am wearing, Sabrina, is by *SK* and will be available at the event and the cane is included.  Don’t miss Enchantment…It’s sure to be…Enchanting.
