To love

You promised the world and I fell for it
I put you first and you adored it
Set fires to my forest
And you let it burn…..

…..And now the chapter is closed and done
To love, love, yeah
To love, love, yeah
To love, yeah
And now it’s goodbye, it’s goodbye for us
~ Selena Gomez – Lose You to Love Me

Normally, I don’t write anything in addition to song lyrics, but occasionally a song comes along that hits you so hard in the feels. I didn’t copy the full lyrics, because this is one of those songs that you can clearly understand every word when listening to it.  Most of my friends know how much I adore Selena Gomez, but I’ve never had any special connection to her music. But this song…wow. It just shows how we so often lose ourselves in a relationship…without even realizing it.
With every word, I feel like she crawled into my head…my heart…my soul and captured the very spirit of what I’ve been feeling these last few months regarding the end of my marriage in real life. I can honestly say that I’ve never grieved a relationship the way I’ve grieved this one and I hope I never do again. This is the hardest thing I’ve ever dealt with and if you know me, or read my blog regularly…well, you know it just doesn’t seem like the type of thing that would destroy me. I didn’t think so either.
I’m coming out of the other side now…and I am finally finding myself again…after all these years. I’m not playing victim or pointing fingers. I’m dealing with my life the best way I can right now. That’s more than I can say I was doing a year ago. I am finally able to love me again.

Goodbye, Paul.

Beachin’

“So just watchin’ her blonde hair, sun burn, stare at them, wack caps rolling over
Laid back in a thrift store beach chair, droppin’ limes in her Corona
Well she looks back, yeah, she throws me a kiss, like honey I sure want you
And it’s a hundred and three between her and me and only 92 in Daytona
And it’s sunshine, blue eyes, tan lines, slow tide
Rollin’ white sand, cold can koozie in my hand, just a summertime strolling”

Oops!

“I tried and I tried to avoid
But this thing was happening
Swallow my pride, let it ride
And parted, but this body felt just like mine
I got worried
I looked over to the left
A reflection of myself
That’s why I couldn’t catch my breath
Oops! There goes my shirt up over my head, oh my
Oops! There goes my skirt droppin’ to my feet, oh my
Oh! Some kind of touch caressing my legs, oh my
Oh! I’m turnin’ red who could this be
I looked over to my left
Mmm, I was lookin’ so good I couldn’t reject myself
I looked over to my left
Mmm, I was feelin’ so good I had to touch myself
I looked over to the left
Mmm, I was eyein’ my thighs, butter pecan brown
I looked over to the left
Mmm, Coming out of my shirt and then my skirt came down”

Zoiks!

So, my regular readers know that I love recreating fairy tale characters with my own little Sady twist, but apparently I am no where near alone on this. In fact, there are hundreds of people that do this in real life, not just here in Second Life. I recently found out that there is practically an entire world of cartoon fetishes out there. Perhaps I’m not labeling that correctly and that’s okay. I’m not trying to be all properly informative today. I did, however, come across an entire Reddit page of sexy Velmas. Now, far be it for me to judge, cuz hey…seems harmless enough. Needless to say, I saw a challenge to be had and it was readily accepted. Just so happens, I recently was hired as the manager of Aleutia and they have this adorable skirt with a windy option…and not so long ago, Jian delivered ‘dorable Danes via gacha. How could I NOT create my own version of Velma and Scooby???

No Place For You

It was the end of summer and she had decided to take a walk down to the Charcuterie for some of Peter’s famous sausages. They would be perfect with the apples she had picked that morning. As she walked along the dirt road she came across the most adorable little piglet, she scooped him up just as she approached Peter’s place. The little pig was so cute as she squealed in her face.
She smiled lovingly at her new pet, “I shall call you Wilbur, but you have to promise not to bring home any friends named Charlotte!” As she approached the door for Peter’s it dawned on her that she should take her new pet home first, “This is no place for you, Wilbur! No place at all!”

Beautiful Love

Not just on vacation like now, but no matter where they were or what she wore, he always made her feel beautiful. Today he made her feel especially beautiful when they stopped to admire this Fortress door by saying to her, “The only thing that could make this more beautiful is you posing in front of it, my love.”
She blushed and did as he suggested. She looked at him with wonder in her eyes.
“What is it?” he asked.
“You,” she said, “you make me feel things I never felt before. You make me believe in myself in ways I never thought possible and it frightens me.”
“Don’t be scared, Darling. Embrace the light that is within you. See you reflection in my eyes and you will see what I see,” he snapped the picture then stepped forward, his gaze locked on hers, “You’ll see that you are truly beautiful.”
Looking into his eyes, she saw love…beautiful love.

Get My Groove Back

Her divorce was final and she had treated herself to a tropical vacation. She’s read all about how Stella got her groove back by going to Jamaica, now she was ready for an adventure of her own. Having left only the minimal contact information with a trusted friend at home that would only call her if someone died, she stepped out on her own to take a holiday that was simply a break from her life.
It was her first day here and she wanted to just take in the view from the comfort of her tiny balcony. This was a private resort that offered all the amenities she needed and now…well…there was some very pretty eye candy walking around the pool. Oh my, she thought, maybe this is how I’ll get my groove back.

I spy with my little eye

Waiting Game

Alright, so this is going to be another lyrics post and I’m going to add a little something at the end. Feel free to listen, read along, or skip to the details. *winks* You know I’ll never know.

BANKS – Waiting Game

I’m thinking it over
The way you make me feel all sexy but it’s causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was in love but I don’t wanna cause any pain
And if I’m feeling like I’m evil, we’ve got nothing to gain

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

Baby I’m thinking it over
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start
What if it only gets colder
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart
Cause lately I’ve been scared of even thinking ’bout where we are

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

need you now

I played this song for Josh while I was preparing this post and he just wrapped me in his arms and whispered, “It was smart.”
I melted as last night was our 7 month anniversary. For some that doesn’t seem like a long time, for others its an eternity. For me, its something pretty special, because I honestly thought I had a four month expiration date as the last 3 people I dated in SL never stuck around longer than 4 months, regardless of who decided to end it. So, to Josh, I have this to say, “If your love is a waiting game…I’ll wait.”♥

Steampunk

“Steampunk is…a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun!”
George Mann

I love this description of Steampunk, because it suits us all so well in Second Life, too, doesn’t it? This is a virtual playground full of adventures, exploration, plenty of spectacles, and God knows we’ve got more than our fair share of drama. I think for most of us its a form of escapism, as well as a creative outlet. I don’t have a lot of experience with Steampunk, so I won’t even pretend to know anything about it other than it looks super cool! Its fun to dress up and decorate with various steampunk and industrial styles in SL. I’ve gathered quite a collection over the years and have rarely displayed any of it outside of my home (which I am constantly changing), but when I saw this corset from Elegance Boutique, a steampunk scene immediately began unfolding in my head and this is the result.

steampunk_011

I’ve listed everything in the photos and its quite a list. Just know that it was the corset that sent my mind whirling into the Eye of the Storm that is now my little world of Steampunk. As there are soooo many color options available, just imagine what it will inspire you to do. *winks*
