I FELL IN LOVE AGAIN

Happy Easter weekend everyone. I hope it's a relaxing time with you and your family. We've been to a few egg hunts in SL the past few days. Such cute and pretty things to collect. These +Half-Deer+ bangles are so cute I had to have them. Take a trip around the grid shopping for a few cute things if you like what I've shared with you. Even the cute new dresses that just released from coldLogic is perfect for your spring wardrobe.

All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset (I made a lot of mistakes)
All things know, all things know (I made a lot of mistakes)
You had to find it (I made a lot of mistakes)
All things go, all things go (I made a lot of mistakes)..."

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD

Our last night on vacation we had a family dance on the ocean. We danced together before the beautiful waterfall on decks amongst the waterlilies. We had glow bugs flying around and pretty lanterns in the sky. I loved our family dance so much. My Takeo was our family DJ for the night and played a bunch of our favorite family songs.

Our vacation week went by way too fast. I just love these people I call family. They make me laugh so much by the end of the night my cheeks hurt. We goof off and we smile all the time. We are there for each other and I look forward to being with them. This was my first vacation in SL and it was the most amazing time. We made some great family memories. Some loving words for my family because when things get them stressed I hope they remember they are loved.


Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and
trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget,
how much you have always loved to swim.

ISLAND IN THE SUN

On our vacation we had a beach family barbeque. Takeo and out little Raven grilled our dinner and we all ate all the yummy food. Afterwards we took a walk on the beach and hung out around the beach fire. For dessert we roasted marshmallows and had s'mores. I told two stories to the family and Takeo told one spooky one. It was a lot of fun and it was a perfect night on vacation.

BEYOND THE SEA

We had the kids do a little seashell hunt on the beach. It was fun and we laughed a lot. I love my family and watching everyone run all over the place was exciting and great practice for Easter egg hunting. They only had to find 15 seashells on one side of the island and they did pretty good. My sister Alicia and her husband Al took their little one Abby around searching. Takeo and I took our three little ones Raven, Riley and Payton around. We even got to meet our new grandbaby Sophie. We soon figured out our two little girls were experts at the art of hunting seashells. Vacation memories are the best.
