My holidays were great! I hope yours were as well.🙂 Life is getting back to normal slowly due to a freak winter storm in my area. No snow for me , just and ice thing and bitter cold !! So be patient with me as I try to catch up.

While I was gone [email protected] released a ton of new things , including hair ! I am loving the new hairs and all the colors BUT I had to have this [email protected] Pixie Lacy Lingerie Pastels. Sexy huh?

Reflecting and Moving Forward

By colleen Criss – Colleens SLife In Pixels. Visit Reflecting and Moving Forward for original post.

Tomorrow is New Years Eve and I hope you will all be spending it with people you love doing things you love.

happy-new-year-2017-wishes3

I am doing a bit of reflecting myself , mostly over things from my offline life. It’s been a long hard year for me BUT my New Years resolution is to MOVE Forward! The Serenity Prayer passes through my head several times a day. Do you know it? It speaks volumes if we listen carefully.

God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.

The most difficult part of this passage of the prayer, for me at least, distinguishing one from the other🙂 but I’m working on it! One of the 1st things that comes to mind is the Presidential Elections. We can not change the outcome of it BUT we can have the grace to accept , move forward and support our country as best we can. You can’t look back over 2016 and not see what I think may have been the worse year for the USA socially, so much violence against other humans. Courage to change the things which should be changed and it will take courage from all of us to end this.

I was very sad to hear of the death of mother and daughter, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds one day apart. It is said that Ms. Reynolds passed due to a broken heart. Do you believe a person can pass from a broken heart? I do.

When there are no family celebrations going on I’ve been binge watching GoT. Are you a fan? Somehow I get the feeling this may be the end of the series, I will certainly miss it. Toran got me started watching this, I resisted on going week to week series for years , now I’m watching so many I have to set reminders so I don’t miss any, I’m even recording them and rushing to On Demand to catch them! { This may need a NY Resolution🙂 }

My email and my fav blogs has let me know I’ve missed A TON of SL holiday celebrations and events 🎄 ! New Bento mesh heads and hands, dances and AO’s made for them and so many Advent Calendars ! BUT, it’s been exciting to watch and read about all of them.

Speaking of blogs, I found a NEW TO ME blog that is damn amazing ! This blogger works extremely hard and it shows, so if you get time pop over and take a look and show a bit of support if possible. The blog name is The Magical life of Cassie Middles.

SL seems to be ready to ring in the New Year, one of the celebrations I have ever enjoyed the most is held by the residents at Bay City. If you have never celebrated there pop over. It’s an awesome friendly crowd and has THE best fireworks and Prim Drop ever! 🎆 there are several celebrations going on , be sure to check the SL Destinations Guide for more !

Well, I think I’ve rattled on for far too long LOL. So, let me leave you all with this…. Thank you for reading and supporting my blog, Thank you for supporting LumaLite and for slapping a like on my Flickr photos and for being a friend ! ❤️ I hope you will have a safe and Happy New Year celebration and as this year is ending, I wish all the negativity and difficulties also end with this year and 2017 bring success and desired results for you.

Take care how you meet and greet with people this New Year since broken spirits have no available spare parts!

Happy New Year !!!

Today is my Rez Day , 9 years old ! I guess next year I’ll be really SL ancient, maybe I’ll write an in depth blog post then about all my SL adventures. Like a really deep tell all bio. LOL!

Like most of us, I’ve had very little in world time due to the holidays but I’ve been busy and enjoying all the fuss and prep that comes with the holidays.

 

I did purchase this holiday sweater though. It made me LOL in RL.

 

ho-ho-ho

It’s from a new to me  store I found on marketplace called Pretty Sex Things. Check this place out as soon as you get time !! This sweater comes in , are ya ready? 14 sizes, 14 sizes , no matter what SL body you wear there is one to fit you.

I doubt I will have time to blog again until after the holiday so my wish for you is that all your wishes come true.

Things Left Undone

By colleen Criss – Colleens SLife In Pixels. Visit Things Left Undone for original post.

This month I feel like I have left many things undone. Too many loose ends I guess but to be honest, since the elections I just can’t get myself together. The political divides, the racial and cultural divides, with each protest I hold my breath. The wildfire we are having also do not help !! Stress everywhere !🙂

I read Strawberry’s blog and she’s listed a ton of ways we can move forward, cope, try to make things better. She’s motivated and a motivator but I don’t see myself protesting because I don’t see it will make anything better. We voiced with our vote, I don’t want to protest because quite simply I feel like we have to watch, wait and see and support the office of President IF we can. I feel like our county looks bad enough already so I’m going to follow President Obama’s lead and give things a chance. We have to stay united as we can as a nation. Because I DO believe that  Love Trumps Hate .

We have lost 2 awesome voice of music this month I’ve posted those here on my blog. You almost have to live under a rock not to know them or their music.

This rendition of Bird On A Wire by Leonard Cohen has touched my heart more then once.

 

Did you know this was written by Leon Russell ?

 

OK , Enough of that ! Moving on🙂 .

for-cc-two

 

I bought this jacket,Eternal Sin Leather Jacket and  Eternal Sin Leather pants a long while ago at the MBA Fair. It’s from PPD ( Pink Pearl Designs ) but you can get them on Marketplace . It comes in a few really awesome colors and it has a HUD for belt color and laces .

 

Anyhow, stay strong, do what you can. Spread the love🙂 .

Halloween was not even over and the ads were already invading our spaces. We are not even through Thanksgiving and Christmas music, decorations and shopping has already began.
