I Do.

I Do

I’m going to be gushy for a moment so please bear with me.

The husband and I just celebrated our first wedding anniversary this weekend.

We met here in SL 8 1/2 years ago and quickly became good friends. Friendship eventually blossomed into love and we met RL nearly a year later.

Last August we finally tied the knot and despite spending the last half of our reception in the basement during a massive storm, it was a fantastic day. If rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck, what are tornadoes considered? Lol.

I can truly say that while it’s been a hell of a ride, it’s worth every minute of it, ups downs, and even the moments I want to beat him over the head. He is my love, my best friend, a gigantic dork and favorite pain in the ass. I’m so excited to see what the future brings for us – hopefully without any more tornadoes!

Snowed In

Snowed In

We had so much snow last weekend and while a lot of it has melted away, we still have a good foot in our back and side yard, and the trash cans still need to be dug out for Friday’s pick up. I should be an adult and go shovel, but I’d rather just stay inside, cuddle up with a good book and some comfort food, and wish that the sun would melt the snow a little bit faster.

Longing to feel your touch…

Longing to feel your touch

This is my second attempt at making a humanoid-robot thing in photoshop. It’s much better than my last attempt, which, after a horrible critique left me feeling defeated, deflated and questioning my photoshop skills. A good portion of this is still “hand drawn” with only the leg and arm joints c/p from a pic I took using a robot avi. All in all though, I’m immensely happy with the results. A well done pic can really lift the spirits.

Boobs for Breast Cancer

Because why not? It’s not the first (and certianly not the last) time I’ve bared my breasts for BCA month. LOL. It started as a joke some years ago on a hostess job and it ended up being a thing to raise money.

Boobies for BCA

All giggles aside though, this post is for the mothers, sisters, wives, friends, co-workers. For the mother-in-law that I will never meet, never have. The Susan G. Komen 3-day was just here in Philly last weekend. Maybe one day I’ll get the energy to walk the 60 miles but for now, this is how I show my support.

Broken

Last weekend was super rough for me, between general lonliness, job search frustrations, as well as trying to figure out the rules of this step-mom biz, I’ve been pouring my feelings into my pictures and ended up with this cyborg/doll all broken down and left in the trash. (A broken sex doll to be precise – at least such is the opinion of my darling fiance. *insert facepam icon here*) Perhaps it’s an over exaggeration of my feelings but I was so downtrodden and frustrated this past weekend that this seemed fitting. BrokenI was really hoping to find a good cyborg skin or tatto layer but nothing seemed appropriate so I added all the joint lines manually, which meant having to sit still and focus, taking my mind off the emotions while having my inner perfectionist raging that the lines didn’t look right and the shading was off. Win-lose I guess lol. Broken (closeup)I also took a close up shot so you could see the detail in the eyes. The pictures were edited on different days so the lines between the two might be slightly off but I’m satisfied with the overall results so I’m leaving it be. Thanks for letting me rant SL.
