Just Tell Me

“It was really nice to have a date night tonight, Luke. It’s been a long time since we dressed up and went somewhere nice…It seems like we’ve spent all of our free time with Emma and Niall the past couple of months and forgot to take a little time off together.”

“Bre, it’s been a wonderful night and I hate to ruin how relaxing it has been, especially now, but I have put off talking about this for too long and ran out of time.”

“Um, Luke, you’re making me kind of nervous, making such a serious comment. Quit staring into space and just tell me please!”

Luke moved and pulled his wife into his lap so they could talk. “I know we agreed to stop working at least until this baby is a few months old, but The Agency called and asked me to take on a mission. It’s a big one and they said I’d be a real asset on this one…I told them yes. I know I should have talked it over with you back when they called, and I shouldn’t have given an answer until we talked, but, I just…I guess I felt I couldn’t walk away when he said they really wanted me to come back in for this mission. I’m so sorry for not telling you sooner and for agreeing without talking to you. And I’m sorry I probably ruined our night out…” Luke replied miserably.

“Luke! You didn’t ruin our time together, but what if something happens? That’s why we agreed to take a break and later on decide if we want to go back into the field. How long before you leave? How long do they think the mission will take? If they made you feel like they need you, then it has to be really dangerous!”

Luke looked down at his feet and then back at Bre. “I leave the day after tomorrow. They called three weeks ago and I’ve been trying to find a way to tell you what I had agreed to, but couldn’t find the nerve. It should only be a couple of weeks, but I know you didn’t want me out in the field right now.”

“We are handfasted and married…you shouldn’t have to find the nerve to talk to me about anything! We vowed to face everything together and to always be there for one another. And I wish you hadn’t put it off. Everybody tries to ‘live in the moment and appreciate it’, but we forget to truly appreciate it sometimes. I don’t want any of us to have regrets.”

Luke sighed, looking at the softly lapping water and stars twinkling just beyond the bridge where they sat. “You’re right. I really hate to let you down and have been worried that the stress could hurt the baby, since you’ve had a rough second trimester.”

“It’s okay and we’re okay. I promise. I’m scared about the danger you’re going to be in, but the baby and I will be fine, and the kids were always pretty easy going about us going on missions. I’ll ask Eva to come stay with us while you’re gone and it’ll feel more normal for them with you gone, then. Just don’t avoid talking about things with me please. Our marriage deserves better than that.”

After clearing the lump in his throat Luke replied, “I made them agree to moving us to a permanent safe house. It has two houses, so one for Sylo to live in, since she has lived in a home beside us for so long that I won’t let them separate you two, and then a place for our family. It won’t be as big or nice as our house currently is, but the agent who called back with the new home information said it’s plenty big enough for us, a room for Niall and Emma, plus a separate nursery for this little one. I told them I wouldn’t even consider it without making sure you all were moved somewhere safe, just in case something happens.”

Bre smiled softly at her husband, taking in his earnest expression and the little crease that always appears between his eyebrows when he’s concerned. “It means a lot that you made sure that they’re taking care of us in case of anything. And I’m glad you’ll be with us tomorrow to help start the move. Plus, you get to tell Sis that she’s moving!” Bre laughed. “Eva has grown used to apartment life and wouldn’t bat an eye at being told to move, but Sylo…she’s going to give you hell!” Bre rubbed her rounded belly, wondering what this new chapter in life will hold, and then looked Luke in the eye. “Just try to come home to us. The mansion isn’t what made our place our home. It’s our family that does that.”

Luke sighed in relief and then smiled in wonder at his wife. “I should have handled this better. Thank you for being…you. And I know I said it earlier, but want you to know I mean it. You look beautiful tonight, love.”

I hope you don’t mind that I decided to blog a little scene that formed in my mind when I decided to change my landscape. I haven’t written dialogue for a long time, so please forgive any mistakes there! *grin* I just had this little movie in my mind and when I found Luna te Amo in the Destination Guide…*chef’s kiss* If you like a photogenic place, you MUST check their place out. The group is free to join, which gives you rez rights, too, although they have various seating arrangements in the different areas, which I took advantage of on the non-beach side of the property.

Whimsical Designs Gives Us LoveMomma’s Liberty

Just in time for the US holiday, Whimsical Design’s gives us two patriotic options at The Main Event. The first is a cute bikini set, but at five months along, Bre is a little more comfortable in the Tank and Shorts Fatpack. The set has 5 jean shorts and 6 4th of July themed tank tops, available at Corfu Beach.

Luane’s World has redone the amazing sim again and had an amazing spot to feature my perfect outfit while admiring the new landscaping (and getting a few ideas for redoing our own land *smile*). There are gorgeous new beach and wooded areas to explore and even take pictures at. A cute wood cabin on top of the hill overlooking the beach and ocean was absolutely perfect to capture the moment, in my opinion.

(Notice the sweet little bandit nibbling away at his dinner!)

The AO is a little awkward for the pregnant body, but I wanted to show just how cute these look together 🙂

Look at that adorable profile in a landscape I’d love to visit IRL

Some maternity clothing doesn’t look quite as cute to me as the pregnancy progresses, so I’m so tickled by how this set looks awesome even past the halfway mark! I know what outfit Bre will be sporting while kissing Luke while playing with the sparklers again this year (and the HUD offers other colors!). *smile* On behalf of The Kincaid Family and my RL family, I wish you a happy 4th filled with family, fun, and yummy food, even if it’s not a holiday where you are!

A Magical Morning Together

Luke and I decided to explore Luanes Magical World today and found this beautiful little gazebo. With a little windlight magic and a softer clarity, we had a magical moment of our own, celebrating four months along. We couldn’t resist a loving pregnancy pose I had found at Reina’s Photography and been holding onto until her bump really started to show more.




RP pose CP0028

We usually stick to the regular Luanes World sim and explore her landscaping (and maybe copy a few ideas when we’re needing to change things up *grin*), but I highly recommend checking out her Magical World sim. Just remember to use a default or magical type of windlight in order to get to appreciate all of the beautiful details and work that Luane put into the land. There are a ton of little getaways tucked into the trees, down the mystical paths, and behind light beams.

I was lucky enough to get the Abby Top from Whimsical Design’s that I paired with the maxi skirt part of outfit 4 from Bluebird Baby, which was the perfect height of crop to show off that sweet little baby bump for Luke to whisper fairytails of magic to. It’s a smock style type with ruched sleeves and a high-low style crop which I found versatile enough to wear with the maxi skirt but paired really well with jeans too, so I’d definitely recommend checking out this new addition to her LoveMomma line.

I want to keep this short and sweet, since it was such a magical moment that it deserves to stand by itself, so following are the credits (SLurls subject to change of course, but I tried to provide what I could).

Celestial Blue and Meauxle Bureaux

Last night Bre and Luke explored Meauxle Bureaux after spotting it on the Destination Guide. According to the guide: “Meauxle Bureaux is the home of the Linden Department of Public Works, a program focused on improvements related to the experience of living in and visiting the Linden Mainland. This intricate build was lovingly crafted by resident experts for all to enjoy, so come see the ultimate in shared creative spaces!” Since we love our LL log cabin and all of the incredible work that the Linden “moles” have done, we had to go check it out.

This was the perfect opportunity to dress up in Whimsical Design’s Michaela Dress in a celestial blue texture and celebrate the start of Peanut’s third month. The dress will make even the most pregnant woman feel sexy, so if you have the LoveMomma or LoveBody, you should definitely try this out! As the Trace Adkins country song goes, “You’re one hot mama”!

Meauxle Bureaux is a super neat place with a mixture of shops/buildings to represent the different moles, along with fun signs to read (you must read the obelisk outside of Abner Mole’s!) and uplifting landscaping. We wandered around for a bit before we settled into Abner’s Pub while chatting and camming around.

Outside of Abner Mole’s Pub
The whole area is so inviting!
We had it all to ourselves

We then headed back over to Luanes World to explore more of the changes she made to the landscape and found the cutest wagon with built in poses. Most aren’t well suited to a dress, so we are definitely going back in casual clothing and having a romantic little photography session. It’s in the standard area, to the right of the lane when you walk with the lake to your left. (If you like doing photography, I definitely recommend joining her group so that you have rezzing rights – not to mention amazing group gift poses. Just use “secondlife:///app/group/883a26d3-c506-65c7-a759-30eed75f6d26/about” in local chat and you ~should~ have the group profile and join come up for you, if I did that right. *grin* You can easily join the group at the mainstore near the forced landing spot if I did that wrong, too, so easy peasy. Back to the wagon though…

So sweet and romantic!

There’s a cute little cabin right beside the lake that we sat on the porch of as we enjoyed the peacefulness Luane created. We couldn’t resist a little kiss and selfie before leaving, though. *grin*

Something New – Absolute Perfection pose (the store is currently moving, but the old store is still open when I last popped in during a hunt. Luke liked this pose because it showed off the wowzer sideview of cleavage with this dress. *laugh* I promise that the front IS covered though, as you saw in the above pictures.

Before we left I couldn’t resist one last picture to show off the awesome technology of the LoveMomma fitted dresses. Once Bre made it to the third month the baby bump started to show a bit more (oh my goodness, how adorable!). This dress fits the LoveBody and all stages of LoveMomma’s pregnancy, so this went from a regular flat beauty and is gently expanding over the bump without distorting any of the textures (which some legacies probably have painful memories of horribly distorted textures on our old clothing, so how awesome is this?!!). It’s hard to believe that I’ve now been Bre for enough years to have gone from clothing layers that distorted over body parts and into crevices, over to mesh and then fitted mesh, and now to this new rigged mesh that is mind blowing in comparison. So yeah, I totally had to do a close up and show off how far SL has come and it was a great opportunity to show how gorgeous the texture is on this dress. *grin*

Can pixels get much cuter than this baby bump? 😀

Bre and Emma’s Shopping Trip

Today Bre started craving some ice cream, so she decided a Mommy and Me trip was in order with Emma. In the matching Whimsical Design’s Mirabel Dress and Ruffle Tank Dress Hope Lace Darks Green by Whimsical Kids for Emma, and the need to feel a little extra feminine with a pretty dress, they had quite an adventure! Since Emma is a bit wild when not in the stroller and Luke had taken Niall on a boys outing with the stroller, Bre carried Emma and kept her out of any unplanned adventures. *laugh*

They say you should never shop on an empty stomach, so their first stop was for some chicken bites and milkshakes, although service was a little slow on taking their order.

Since it was a fully indulgent day, they grabbed a pint from the store and indulged in Bre’s lastest craving for ice cream.

With full bellies the girls hit the road to visit Miamic Park and check out all of the changes. If you have any little ones or would like a really neat place to hang out, I sincerely recommend checking out Miamic (there’s even a post featuring Miamic in previous blog posts). There is an incredibly beautiful spot to snuggle up for a pretty picture, even!

When you’re not enjoying the activities or company, this is a beautiful spot at Miamic!

The girls headed home and decided to hang out for a bit in Trompe Loeil’s Bookworm Hideaway while waiting for the fellas to get home. Nothing like snuggling in a cozy nook with a woodstove after a busy day.

Two Out of Three Angels Isn’t Bad

The other night found Luke and Bre back at the Ohm location, but this time during a helicopter extrication after rescuing an asset.  Although the third “Angel” was not available, Luke and Bre fought back the assailants long enough for the other team to secure the asset, and I had the chance to take a few photographs to document their tactical work, which would otherwise forever remain unknown.

 

Unfortunately the enemy had all ready attacked the local police department’s response team, but were able to get away safely as Luke and Bre dangled from the helicopter’s rope ladder, providing cover fire.  Near the end, Bre grew frustrated and retrieved her favorite weapon to make sure that the assailants would back off.

Battle at Ohm

Ohm is a partial sim that is open to the public (please note that it is an adult sim though) and is incredibly landscaped to be an apocalyptic scene with a variety of broken down or destroyed vignettes within the concept.  We bought the SH RP Prop Gun – 870 Shotgun with HUD at Man-Pocalypse and couldn’t resist having a little fun with the guns in a little photoshoot at Ohm.

Note: I’m leaving the pictures a bit larger than usual, since they have more detail, are darker, and are scenes instead of closeups.

If you’re into a cool photoshoot or want to enjoy the awesome landscaping of a destroyed town, I definitely recommend checking out Ohm.  I joined the group (I don’t know if it’s necessary for rezzing, but did just in case), and was able to even rez poseballs as needed.  Most of the posing was done via the HUD that comes with the Shotgun, which is currently 400L at the event.  A bit expensive for our usually frugal budget, but it has some handy animations for photoshoots (even walking and running aimed animations [!], although those didn’t photograph so well, so I didn’t include those lol), and they look so good that we’ll definitely be having some fun photoshoots with them again.  Plus, it comes with a drawn version and the slung behind the back version, as well!  We had a lot of fun and took way too many pictures while playing with windlights and angles.  🙂  Before I go, one little tip if you’re interested in doing one of these style photoshoots.  Invest in the LUMIPro HUD, available on the MP.  It’s expensive, but can be used with other avatars as well and super modifiable to fit your needs, and has way better lighting than face lights.  I almost always use it when using alternate windlights than CalWL or another bright WL.  Just add the HUD, attach the light balls (adjust if desired), pick a setting, and then click hide.  There are different styles of light angles built right in or you can move the light balls around to get the look you’re going for, plus you can even change the colors they emit (which I’ll be showing in my next post, where I did a little color experiment that I saw on Pinterest that photographers have done in RL!).  Anyway, I hope the tidbits are handy and you have some fun exploring while wandering SL during lockdown.  Stay safe and healthy! 🙂

LeLutka Evolution Makeovers

I’m a little delayed with getting this written, since I’ve been sick, but during the Skin Fair I decided that Bre and Luke both needed LeLutka Evolution makeovers.  Partially because, you know, the newest technology so I have to get it lol, but also because it would make me fully learn BoM, to then help Luke and my friends switch over.  I’ve done a lot of tweaking since the first pic, right after I got the main parts set up aaaaand I got used to the animations HUD (I swear I need to buy a magnifying glass for the static facial poses!).  So, first round, not my favorite and a particularly unhappy looking one:

 

LeLu Evo Makeover 3 20_007

 

Luke got updated from Guy to the Evolution Skyler while Bre updated from Simone to Evolutions Erin, with updated Maitreya and Signature Gianni put on and Bakes on Mesh (BoM) turned on.  His beard is one of the added features with the head and out of a selection that LeLutka generously provided, he liked this one (and the sideburns almost meet the hairbase completely, so he was really happy with that).  I was stoked that I could still use my applier tattoo despite having BoM active, because it’s my favorite and the designer hasn’t switched to BoM yet.  Poor Luke has no tattoos yet, since no BoM ones are hitting his Celtic open-my-wallet bone. (**Update: with a few missed clicks, Luke got to add his tattoo back on despite the designer not having it as a tattoo layer!)  *grin*  I had to change to a brighter red haircolor to match my wild RL dye job, of course (too bad it wasn’t that easy to change colors IRL! lol).  He also got new glasses since the old ones don’t work well with the new “skeleton” of the Evo head.

 

After a bit of work on their shapes and a super handy guide on MP we looked a bit more like “ourselves”.  (Naria Panthar also has some great tutorials regarding BoM over on YouTube if you are a visual learner.)

Bre and Luke 3 23 20_020

 

And what do you do once you’ve had makeovers?  Go to Luane’s World and take sexy pictures, of course!  *grin*  She changed the regular sim over to Spring and there are so many hidden treasures in her landscaping that it is a must see destination, in my opinion!

Since I refused to take off my new overalls from Addams (and an old Sn@tch lucky board system layer top now that we’re BoM!), he went country with the Rebellion cowboy hat.  It took some head movements and perfect timing to get a good picture with both wearing cowboy hats, so over to short hair (I’m a Truth addict, so it was probably harder to decide on which hair to change to than taking the picture lol).  I used LumiPro on both avatars for the lighting (seriously look into it if you want to take pictures; it’s totally worth the cost and if the other person accepts the light balls that you can position and hide, you can light up both of you with the perfect light without face lights making the nose so prominent *grin*).  For the barn pose we used: Ardent Poses – Entrapment, with Ardent Poses – Always for the standing one, tweaked a bit with the [HD]multi bento pose HUD beta v.1.41 giving a little help for our head tilts.

 

Once he logged off and I couldn’t sleep, I headed back over to Luane’s and took a bunch of different pictures.  I had been looking on Pinterest at photoshoot ideas while on bedrest and went a bit wild trying all the different country ones I found that I had poses to accomodate.  And if you don’t have an overwhelming amount of poses to try in your inventory, Luane has a ton of items with built in poses scattered about!

It was so hard to pick favorites to share, since I had so much fun.  *grin* My top favorites are definitely the tractor and tree pictures, for sure.  If you like any items I didn’t provide SLurls for, don’t hesitate to ask in the comments and I’ll share them ASAP.  I just don’t want to overwhelm and look like a sponsored post, because this is all me (except for Luke obviously).  Luane has lots of poses at the mainstore landing spot and tons on MP, like the Heart of Gold I used, so her poses are in my top recommendations.

 

Between being sick, makeovers, BoM, and working on improving my photography, I’ve avoided sorting my inventory really well.  *grin* Oh, and one awesome tip, if you’re interested in some freebies during this crazy time of self isolation and quarantines, check out The Stay at Home Club SL.  It’ll help bloat that inventory further and designers have been super generous!!  Stay safe and healthy!

Niall Part 1

We decided to change a little bit of our second life and created a little storyline to go with it.  Hopefully you enjoy the fun story to go with our little surprise…

 

Luke received an urgent call from a childhood friend of his in Ireland and after some brief discussion, Emma was dropped off to stay with Aunt Eva for a few days while Luke and Bre took the first flight out to see his friend in person.  Sadly, Luke’s friend had just become a widow due to a car accident and was unable to take care of their young baby by himself.  He reached out to Luke for advice and the comfort that only a longtime friend can give.

 

After spending time with Luke’s friend, until the traditional family and friend casseroles and visits started, Luke and Bre wandered around Dublin for a spell while talking about his friend’s situation.

Bre and Luke’s Fall Trip

Aunt Eva took Emma for the weekend, so Luke and Bre took off to explore Luanes World’s non-fantasy side.  It was so beautiful; full of Fall landscape and romance.  It was easy to take way too many pictures.  If I don’t list a specific pose, which I’ll attach the MP link to, then it’s one built into the furniture set out on the property.  Not all of these made it onto Flickr, but please check those out again via my Flickr this time, because I added a pretty quote for each uploaded picture.  If you have not been to Luanes World, I highly recommend exploring.  If you join the group, you even have rez rights and a group gift periodically.  There’s even a path to the left from the store with all sorts of whimsical fantasy landscaping.
