Merry Christmas!

Wow.  I haven't posted here in ages.


I was sitting around wrapping my Christmas gifts today playing Christmas music on Pandora...


And then I remembered all of the days and nights spent around this time of year with my friends in SL.  I remember Borday switching the land radio at our house to all Christmas music for me because he knew I loved Christmas music so much.  I remember Bev giving me a Christmas music only radio for one of my homes.  The Christmas parties - from ROBs to the Savoy and everywhere in between.  And the outfits!  Oh did I have Christmas outfits........


Crazy how things from like...seven years ago can stick in your head.


I thought about that first Christmas with all of my SL friends and all of the Christmas adventures that followed every year after.


Snowy cabins.  Tropical islands.  Skyboxes.  Train rides.  Exploring.  Treasure hunts.


How crazy is it all?


My Christmas wish is simple.  I hope that wherever my friends are, no matter how far we've wandered from each other, that they have an amazing Christmas filled with love and happiness.


Merry Christmas loves.  :)

This Song Is Perfect....


Guess it's true, I'm not good at a one-night stand
But I still need love 'cause I'm just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don't want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

Oh, won't you stay with me?
'Cause you're all I need
This ain't love it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Why am I so emotional?
No it's not a good look, gain some self control
And deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me so it doesn't hurt

Oh, won't you stay with me?
'Cause you're all I need
This ain't love it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Oh, won't you stay with me?
'Cause you're all I need
This ain't love it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me

Oh, won't you stay with me?
'Cause you're all I need
This ain't love it's clear to see
But darling, stay with me...

Maroon 5 - Maps

I miss taste of the sweet life
I miss the conversation
I'm searching for a song tonight
I'm changing all of the stations
I like to think that, we had it all
We drew a map to a better place
But on that road I took a fall
Oh baby why did you run away?

I was there for you
In your darkest times
I was there for you
In your darkest nights

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
All the roads you took came back to me
So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following

I hear your voice in my sleep at night
Hard to resist temptation
'Cause all these strangers come over me
Now I can't get over you
No I just can't get over you

I was there for you
In your darkest times
I was there for you
In your darkest nights

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
All the roads you took came back to me
So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Yeah yeah yeah
Oh oh

Oh I was there for you
Oh In you darkest times
Oh I was there for you
Oh In your darkest nights

Oh I was there for you
Oh In you darkest times
Oh I was there for you
Oh In your darkest nights

But I wonder where were you
When I was at my worst
Down on my knees
And you said you had my back
So I wonder where were you
All the roads you took came back to me
So I'm following the map that leads to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following to you
The map that leads to you
Ain't nothing I can do
The map that leads to you
Following, following, following....

Life, Love and Everything in Between

Well, it's hella hot here in the fabulous NYC. So that made it prime time to do some cooking and cleaning and household stuff. 

And then I came across this quote. 

And how true is that?  I've been blessed to have so many amazing people in my life, and even so many people that used to be a part of my life. 

And they all have something in common. Their contribution to my life story has made me who I am.  The good things, the bad things, the stuff in between. 

Like everyone, I have my regrets. Things unsaid, never done, things I should have held back on - but I suppose that's my path - and it'll lead me where I need to be. 

I hope your story is as good as mine. Filled with love, laughter, and all the things that get you there - including heartbreak and sadness. 

And if you don't feel like the bad things lead you to something better, then just remember that you're not alone.
