“The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure.” Dale Carnegie
Whew, two weeks really does go by very quickly, when you’re moving your whole life into a new place. I needed every second of those two weeks too. As many know, I took a hiatus to uproot my life into my first home. I’m very lucky to feel like my home is really home. So I am very happy about my move. I still have a few things that need to be put away, so please be patient with my random afk’s inworld. BUT, I have to say, it’s good to be back. I was very excited to come back and take this photo. I’ve been itching to start taking pictures again on a regular basis.
Speaking of pictures, I took this photo on my land in a little backdrop from Sayo. This may be one of my favorite backdrops. I didn’t purchase it right away, but I always see pictures with it. I broke down and purchased it. Crimson dreams by Sayo is the wonderful backdrop used in the photo above, and you can find it at their main store.
Now, if you want the mistress outfit, or lingerie, you have to look no further than the epiphany. I absolutely adore this event and I made sure to go shopping. I was not going to miss it for the world. I also spent a small fortune there, so be prepared to bring your lindens. I took out a small loan against my mesh house, just to buy everything–not really, but I did spend a lot.
In the above photo, I’m wearing Eliavah’s Serenight Gacha from the epiphany. The dress, harness, hat, and leggings are all part of this gacha set. The set also has hair as a prize, but it is not feature here. I have to say Eliavah’s textures are amazing. Now onto Alisha’s outfit, the blond, she’s wearing the rare lingerie set by Caboodle called Spring Lover. The set is absolutely gorgeous. It includes the panties and bra–for the rare. The blindfold is also one of the available prizes, but is not part of the rare set.
As you can tell, I had a lot of fun taking this picture. I always believe that the more fun you have with a photo, the more it shows. I found this quote and I couldn’t agree more. You have to be happy doing what you’re doing, otherwise why do it… I’ve been blogging for a few years now and I enjoy it more now than a few years ago. I enjoy the ability to take an outfit and interpret it–and creating the scene to display it. But what I enjoy the most is sharing my photos with others. I’ve had an outpouring of love for my photos lately. And I would just like to thank my followers on flickr and the followers of my blog. Thank you for sticking with me through all my moody, weird, and happy posts. It really does touch my heart to see residents appreciate my work. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking with me. ♥♥♥
Before I end this blog, I want to put love out into the world, because I need the same love back. Sometimes we give people what we can because we know one day that we’ll need it in return. I believe the universe gives you what you need–maybe not what you want, but definitely what you need. I’ve seen it countless times. I think it’s important to put love out into the world because we all need love and a sense of home.
Before moving into my house, there was an owl mat at my front door. I’m going to miss my neighborhood owl that would visit me every year, after the harsh winter. Yet some how, that symbol of the owl, I know that I’m finally home. (Random thought, I know).
I hope everyone finds their “home”. When I say home, I don’t always mean a building where you put your stuff. Home is the place where you’re happy with friends, family, pets, and extended family. It is the people who make a home. Even in second life, it is the people who stand by your side in the worst and best of times. We are all lucky to find that home, even virtually. I’m truly happy for others who find that soft spot in the virtual world… and in real life. You should enjoy it for it’s one of the best things in life.
A few months ago, I thought about people in the virtual world. It’s kind of wonderful to know that there are so many people that roam second life. I used to be kind of possessive, when it came to people. But one night, I thought about how wonderful it is that other people exist in the world. So if anything happened, there’s a community of people to surround yourself with. Like if we leave this world, there are others to comfort the people left behind. When your slated for surgery, you think about those things. I’m lucky for that epiphany. It has been the best lesson in this virtual space. We all need people in life. We aren’t born alone. We shouldn’t deal with hardships alone.
Okay, this is way longer and introspective than I intended. However, I just want to put love out into the world. Because it really is the best part of living. So I hope you have a blast at the epiphany. Bring a friend. Laugh a lot. Enjoy every second of the good moments in all worlds. I truly wish you a happy, and healthy day. Now, go have fun at the epiphany!!! As always, if you like anything featured in the above photo, please take a look at my credits.
Be Kind To One Another!!
