You were larger than life

My father was one of those individuals that was larger than life, but he was just a man with a passion for life, his music and family. Today is his birthday and I miss him a lot.  I wasn’t sure that I would get around to doing a blog post today, but I’ve done one the last two years in tribute to my father and so I could not go without doing it.

The items that I used for my picture are all from this round of On9, minus the hair and the basics that I wear most days. Everything is listed in credits and instead of creating my own scene I visted Winter Trace, which reminded me of one of our last family trips to the Smoky Mountains during Christmas one year.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Also, it’s rare these days for me to take a photo at a sim, as I usually create my own scenes, but I’ve been seeing all these wonderful photos of “It all starts with a smile,” so go check it out.  It’s beautifully decorated for this Fall season. There’s even a photo contest going on right now, so take some snapshots!

Riding in the fast lane

Happy Easter!!

I’m bursting at the seams having just finished a huge breakfast and feeling a slight buzz from drinking one glass of sangria.  That stuff is pretty lethal! Or maybe my niece slipped in a little more wine than required.  I don’t know.  I’m feeling it!

I am showing some pictures I took last night on my bike.  I had a great evening, with somewhat of an eerie effect to it.  It dawned on me after I got in bed that the time had passed so swiftly and yet as I lay there I had a feeling of being at peace. I can’t attribute it to anything I did last night, other than I slipped off into my own little world without a care and was just doing things automatically.

After getting severely beaten the other night I thought to get in a little practice. I can’t seem to focus lately, and last night was no better. I did a few runs on my own at first until someone showed up and gave me a reason to push a little harder. I won the runs, except it didn’t feel victorious as they were new and still getting accustomed to riding the bike. Though after that I got easily distracted with wanting to grab a picture of myself.

I know. I’m so vain like that.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
