Romance in the air…

Make no mistake, Glitter’s Irina is the perfect outfit for a romantic date. Valentine’s Day will be here sooner than you think! The outfit is at eBento’s January round, and it’s available in 8 colors (separately) with a texture hud for 3 patterns. The patterns include plain, a opaque solid color, a solid color with a lace pattern, or just lace sheer, which is what I’m wearing. Check it out before it’s too late!

Why so Sad?

90s music soothes my soul.

You get down, real low down
You listen to Coltrane, derail your own train
Well, who hasn’t been there before?

I come ’round, around the hard way
Bring you comics in bed, scrape the mold off the bread
And serve you French toast again

Well, okay, I still get stoned
I’m not the kind of girl you’d take home

If it makes you happy
It can’t be that bad
If it makes you happy
Then why the hell are you so sad?

We’ve been far, far away from here
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitoes
And everywhere in between

Well, okay, we get along
So what if right now everything’s wrong?

“Meet Me in the Afterglow”

I need to say, hey
It’s all me in my head
I’m the one who burned us down
But it’s not what I meant
Sorry that I hurt you

I don’t wanna do, I don’t wanna do this to you
I don’t wanna lose, I don’t wanna lose this with you
I need to say, hey
It’s all me, just don’t go
Meet me in the afterglow

Here We Go Again

We’re 4 days into 2021. I don’t have magic to report, but I can safely say the new year is what you make of it. Some things never change.

Signs

Sassy Sweet Poses came up with a clever pose to ring in in the new year, and it includes plenty of toilet paper and hand sanitizer. It also comes with a changeable sign with 5 messages. In case you haven’t heard, Pose Fair ends on December 28th. It will be back! Until then, drop by Pose Fair for gifts and exclusive poses to help you capture your last moments of 2020.

Negotiation

Shutter Up has a super cute group pose set. Sadly, there’s only me and Taco. I don’t have SL kiddos or a SL Grandma; however, if you do, Shutter Up’s Mugshot has a special place just for them.

Lost in your eyes

My hubby and I had to do a little shopping today because there’s a slight delay with the packages we ordered online. Waiting in line, we had a moment. For a minute or so, we were connected. Eyes locked. Our worries washed away like a snowdrift in the sun. Sigh. That’s true love.
