He asked...I said, "YES"!!!!!!!

Hmmm...Most of you have heard the news, but I am going to tell you again!!! On Tuesday, July 13, 2010..Mr. Pat Kenaan aske me, Scarlot Verrazzano, to be his partner....of coarse, I said "YES, YES, YES"

Pat & I met one day while exploring. I was getting quite bored with my Second Life, so I thought I would start a hobby. I have always been interested in the photography side of SL, just didn't know where to start. I decided to explore various sims to practice taking some photos and play with windlight settings. I was at Fotoscope Island messing with the various poses that they have situated around the sim. I found a tree stump, sat down and started to read a book (ever see that pose)...anyway, this guy says..."Hello"..."I'm sorry, I didn't mean to disturb you". Needless to say we spent the rest of the afternoon together. We had a really nice time. We looked at Korgi's Gallery and even had a photo contest amongst ourselves. :)

Fast forward a couple of months ....Pat & I are owners of Thorndale Gallery. Pat had a vision, he shared it with me and together we made it come alive. It took a lot of hard work, and we work on it every day...but we know now that together we can accomplish anything.

Those of you who know Pat will agree that he is a sweetheart. He is always willing to help anyone, and is always friendly. There may be a side of Pat that you may not know, but I have been fortunate enough to get to know...and that is Pat as a teacher. Pat is so patient, kind, caring, the list is a mile long. One thing I know...he is genuine!! He encourages me and not just in a boyfriend kind of way. He encouraged me into writing these blogs, and will give me hints or suggestions as to how to make them my own. When I am in a mood...he has found a way to calm me down...and he doesn't always agree with my viewpoint (grrr) but he lets me be me.

Second Life is definitely looking up for me these days... with my friends, Thorndale Gallery, and now Pat as my SL can only get better!! There is a saying... When you least expect it!! I never believed that...but I do now!! Thank you Pat for all you've brought into my Second Life!! You have made me soooo happy!! I LOVE YOU!!

Margaritas & Friendships

What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon...Margaritas with a good friend!! It has been awhile since my friend, Erica and I have gotten together. We both have significant others and time just seems to fly by. Well, it just so happened we both had time for a visit, so I flew over to her house (we live on the same sim). Whenever I sit around and talk to my friends, I'm always searching for new pictures. I love capturing a moment or two...and love sharing with friends what I see. Pictures speak a thousand words..and this one of me is saying...."a few more margaritas and I'm crawling home"

This is Erica. She is my neighbor. When I first moved into the Coco Falls Sim, she came over right away and welcomed me. Little did I know that she would eventually become one of my best friends. She has been here for me anytime I needed someone to talk to, given me advice when I have asked, and have gotten me to laugh when I needed it. I can't tell you how many times I have heard her're a goof!! I love that!!! We had a good afternoon..drinking, laughing and sharing our lives. Never in a million years, would I have thought that SL would connect me to such great people.

As the sun was setting...and I was starting to slur my words (Margaritas remember?) was time for me to head home. For fear of flying off to never-never land, I decided to walk on home. On the walk home, it gave me time to reflect...I smiled...and thought how thankful I am to have such a that is family!!
