QT With the Baby Sis!

I don’t get to spend much time w/ my baby sister in SL; but when we get together we make the most of it! Be it laughter, singing, shopping, movie watching, dancing or just talking in depth…I always fully enjoy the time I get with her.  She’s one of the brightest stars in my sky and I’m so blessed to have her as my sister and friend.

I snagged this snappy of she and I while we were hanging out because 1 – I love to show her off. She’s just that awesome! And 2 – because I actually worked really hard to look cute this particular day by picking out this awesome group gift from Artizana and matching it with my latest finds from across the grid. See?

When The Music Feels Like This…

When the music feels like this
When you lose control you gotta go with it
Ten feet high
Flying above the sky
Your problems don’t exist
When music feels like this…

I’ve been in my head a lot lately…and I don’t see it changing any time soon. So many thoughts and emotions are running through me that I can barely breathe some days.  Music helps…so time to crank it up even more.

The Darker the Berry…

2017-07-15_005.png

As a woman of color in real life and having been on the grid for almost ten years, I have always struggled with finding darker skins that are closer to (or darker than) my actual skin tone. I love this particular release coming out of Soul because it celebrates a skin tone darker than I usually wear (and comes darker than this) as well as adding features that fit our nationality, with shadowing and details that help broaden the nose. That being said…

I look daaaaaaamn cute in my new bodysuit that helps me celebrate the beauty of the skin I’m in. After all, didn’t your momma ever tell you: the darker the berry…the sweeter the juice! 😉

Coffee & Pizza Crusts

2017-07-14_012.png

Visiting over my 2nd oldest daughter’s house today, my grandson Novel said he wanted pizza for breakfast.  So, I made a breakfast pizza and we sat while I drank coffee.  And it reminded me of my RL mother, Miss F. So, while eating breakfast with my grandson, I decided to tell him a little bit about her and now I’m sharing the story with you.*

2017-07-14_009.png

I remember when I was little, my mom would sometimes have her leftover pizza crusts with her coffee. Sometimes…it’d be toast.  But always from this big glass roundish coffee mug. I always thought it was so cool; the coffee…not the pizza part.  Once when I was little, she let me try her coffee. Now that I think of it, she had WAY too much Coffee-Mate in it (I can actually still taste it as I sit here and rewrite this from earlier). I didn’t care though. It was hers and she shared it with me and that was before I understood that there was such a thing as too much creamer. I loved it. It made me feel so grown up; like I was the bomb (as my grandbaby put it lol)…the absolute bomb. Later in life she taught me how to make coffee using her old percolator (man that thing was old) and we’d enjoy our own separate cups together. It wasn’t so much about the coffee that made it so important; it was that feeling of inclusion and warmth that came with sharing a moment with her…and her sharing something she really enjoyed with me.

It’s funny what the human brain holds on to and how it retains the memory.  A flashback, a quiet moment or even a simple story can trigger the factory senses and bring you right back to the moment where you felt wanted and loved.

Though they may only be my virtual babies and grandbabies, I hope they realize just how much I love having them in my life and how much I care for each of them.  I never want them to question that they are both wanted and loved.  Be it playtime with my grandson, getting my butt kicked at Cheesy by my former son-in-law or simply having a cup of coffee and sharing memories…it’s all part of what makes me, me. And that, like the coffee…is a gift I got from my momma.

Wishing for Summer Rain

Summer rain
Whispers me to sleep
And wakes me up again
Sometimes I swear I hear it call my name
To wash away the pain
My summer rain

~ Carl Thomas, “Summer Rain”

2017-07-12_003

This heat is no joke.  Man a nice cooling rainstorm would be nice right about now.  It’s balmy.  And that and the need for the breeze and the rain made me think of this old school track that I once heard at my mom’s house. I definitely am wishing for the rain.
