Very talented blogger, Sophia Harlow, opened up her private sim, Sacred, for the month of October that others could enjoy it and take pics. I can’t even begin to tell you how beautiful her sim is, in my opinion is it one of the prettiest I have seen in my over eight years on the grid. It was so peaceful and you could tell that each area, each piece was picked and chosen with care. Being one that loves attention to detail I greatly appreciated all the work that she has put into her sim and I’m so thankful she opened it up for others to share. By the many pics I took and how large this post is you can probably tell how truly inspired I was and I hope that my pics can do her land just a little bit of justice. I also discovered how sweet Sophia is when I met her one night while taking pics at her cafe. She sent an IM and offered to change permissions so that I could rez if I needed to and even though I wouldn’t need her to until the next day when Etherian could join me, she changed it right then so when I returned I could use my couples poses.
One of my favorite spots was this great little bathhouse that she had at her landing point. Such a pretty place to relax and as Etherian walked me down the path we also passed by a fantastic little gazebo filled with comfy places to sit, cuddle, read or daydream by a roaring fire.
As we made our way down the path to her cafe we walked under a canopy of trees and just past a bridge made from a hollowed log(fantastic) Etherian had me stop so that he could take a pic of me. I absolutely adore paths and roads like this in RL or SL, never been sure why but I always love their covered beauty.
The back deck of the cafe overlooks a quaint river that runs between it and her private home. This was by far my favorite spot on the whole sim. There was something about the scenery that I was drawn to. I loved it so much I could not decide which version of the pic I loved more so I included them both.
I also loved her home, since we could also roam through that as well. She had so many places in it that made me go WOW I can’t even tell you. Since it was her private space I didn’t feel right taking pics because I feel that isn’t my place to do so, but trust me that gal has mad decorating skills. Well, we know that from her fantastic blog posts.
As we were hanging out at the cafe enjoying the view while sipping coffee I guess I got a little too hopped up on the caffeine because Etherian decided it was time to cut me off. As you can see he snatched my big ole cup away from me and to my shock was not wanting to give it back. Finally I managed to retrieve it despite his tall frame and that’s when he decided to throw me over his shoulder and carry me out of there! But I didn’t want to go! I wanted to live there gosh darn it! Much thanks again to Sophia for letting us enjoy her sim, we both enjoyed it very much.
