Beachy Sunset

The Agarwood Tree is an evergreen tree that was mostly found in Northeast India, Bangladesh and Southeast Asia, and is now considered endangered. Deep, rich, earthy and personal, its sweet yet sharp balsamic woodiness will stimulate all of your senses. Agarwood trees grow randomly in the forest, usually in difficult to reach places. A couple of them have made it down to our beach for the sake of this picture. Agarwood is also an aphrodisiac, both in oil form, and as incense. The Agarwood Tree is a new release by The Little Branch and it’s available at this round of Uber. Happy landscaping!

I Was Made For Sunny Days

I was born in early January during a blizzard and I’ve lived inside the Arctic Circle almost my entire life. That’s a lot of winter. There’s not much that resembles spring yet up here, except the sun is back and it’s a little warmer; I can feel the sun on my face and I know I was made for sunny days.

Gather ’round in the sun for fun, food, and friends with the amazing Nantucket Patio Set by CHEZ MOI! Comes with texture changer HUD and packed with single and couples animations (PG/Adult).

Believe in Tomorrow

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.

Audrey Hepburn

There is still so much beauty in this world I have to believe that one day soon I can enjoy it fully again, together with the love of my life. That we all can be together with our loved ones. Let’s believe in tomorrow. I’m blogging so many beautiful things here, find the details below. Happy Friday everyone and stay safe!

Easter Treats

New from The Little Branch at this round of Uber is the Potted Orange Tree. These small-stature ornamental trees are popular for their fragrance and small fruits. There are 4 different shapes to choose from and each is situated in a beautiful planter.

You can find your Easter treats at Aphrodite! Two different versions of the Easter Board is available at the mainstore and marketplace. Gives treats upon Touch, with hold and eating animations.

I’ve also included the beautiful Vintage Wrought Patio Set by CHEZ MOI; one of my favourite outdoor café style sets. Texture changing menu upon Touch and the chair comes filled with animations, singles and couples.

Route 69

When we’re not on SL, M and I often watch horror shows together on Netflix (screen share in Discord for the win!). Her passion for the genre has opened my eyes to Norwegian horror as we’ve watched Cave and are now enjoying the Bloodride short stories. Villmark and Cold Prey are definitely also now on the ‘to watch’ list! This scene I’ve created doesn’t look anything like Norwegian horror though; no dark forest, no looming mountains or cracking glacier… but would you stay at the Wander Inn?

Spring Ready

The puppies and I were walking in slush this morning as the snow from last week is now thawing. I’m so ready for Spring, especially when looking at the Summertime Cottage from DaD, with curtains blowing in the ocean breeze, flowers in bloom all around and the log planter from EED looks exactly like the ones my dad made at the cabin.

The Path

Never follow anyone else’s path. Unless you’re in the woods and you’re lost and you see a path. Then by all means follow that path.

Ellen Degeneres

Yeah, I’m not big on inspirational quotes but give me love songs, poems or some wise words and I’m listening… Especially if the wise words are coming from Ellen Degeneres. It’s Thursday, which means it’s almost Friday. I might celebrate almost Friday by posting two blog posts today! This first post is featuring the majestic looking American Chestnut tree from The Little Branch which is available at the Man Cave event. And the flickering Mystic Lantern by Refuge you can find at the Refuge mainstore. All items used are listed in the credits below.
