And Suddenly

My sister used to say, “When I was little, Christmas seemed to come once every three years. Now it seems to come every three months.” The same could be said for the turning of the calendar to a brand new year. 2017 was a year of more downs than ups for me, but as 2018 sneaks up on me, I am grateful for the bright spots in my life. Although I have had some health issues this last year, I could be worse than I am. I don’t love my job in real life, but I can take pride in knowing that I do it well. While I have had to cut back on my blogging, I still find pleasure in the process.

While I have never been primarily a Home & Garden blogger, I have dabbled in it over the years. Expect to see fewer of these types of posts on my blog in the future, but when I do one, it will be because of inspiration from some of the finest designers on the grid.

As always, I love anything from [ keke ]. These New Year’s inspired offerings by Kean Kelly at Shiny Shabby and Uber were my starting point. If you plan on hosting a NYE party in Second Life, make sure you include these beautifully made party decorations.

To set the scene, I blew my budget on the amazing ROIRO L’ Annulaire Gacha, available at Cosmopolitan. There are so many options in this gacha I normally would have steered clear, but I was captivated by the quality of the items and story that they tell when put together. Add in some furniture and accessories from Kuro and The Liaison Collaborative and suddenly, it’s time to celebrate.
