Next Stop, Our Life!

Well, the honeymoon is over!!

Haha, no, not in THAT way. Did I scare ya? I mean, we left our honeymoon vacation today! We had an absolutely lovely time. Our little private paradise was everything we could have wanted. We had almost 2 weeks of fun, games, and just being together. I swear, almost every night was like a date night for us!

But it’s time to get back to doing what we do. We’re setting up our new home on Bluebonnet, and guess what else?? We are reopening Bluebonnet for rentals! I was not sure I’d ever do that again, but truthfully, there is so much land that goes basically unused. We’re only accepting 5 renters (well, we have 5 parcels up for grabs. Families are, of course, welcome.) I hope we’re able to get some really nice people in there. Jeremiah is handling the rental side for the most part because he’s used to it from doing rentals on his own region. I’m mostly going to be decorating the land and making sure everything looks like somewhere people would want to live. We’ll have a few places for people to hang out and see and everything. I really just want it to be a place that feels like home at all times.

So, even though I am sad to leave our little slice of paradise, I’m very excited for the next adventure.

Next stop, our life!

A Tiny Slice Of Heaven

We’re at our honeymoon spot!

A tiny slice of heaven

Jeremiah kept our honeymoon a secret from me. Oh yes, it drove me nuts not to know where we were going!! But last night we flew off to our destination and oh, it is just beautiful! It is exactly the kind of place I would have chosen!

We are staying in a lovely little cabin that is just as precious as can be. Our bedroom overlooks a little river and pond, and we are just a short walk from a private beach.

I’ll have more pictures and posts later, but right now we are just relaxing together and enjoying the first full day of married life. 💙

We Do!

We did it!

All of me loves all of you

Yep, it’s true! Today I became Alicia Noelle Leitner.

We had a small private ceremony with just us, Birdy, and a few close friends. It was so lovely. I know some people probably will feel slighted that they were not invited to the ceremony, but honestly, we wanted to keep it very small and intimate, so I hope people respect that.

We said our vows to each other, and I cried, of course. *laughs* I just couldn’t help myself!

Our reception was also really fun. We had music by our favorite live singer, Wolfie Starfire! Oh, she put on a great show for us! Lots of Disney song requests from us and our guests, so I think she really had a fun time, too!

Right now we’re resting a bit and having some food. Later tonight, Jeremiah and I will be jetting off to our honeymoon! He has not told me exactly where we are going yet, so I’m very very excited to get to see it!

Next blog post will be from our honeymoon!

Country Life

So, Jeremiah has a problem.

Ok, it’s not really a problem as much as it is a fun hobby? *laughs*

He likes to rent places. We officially live on Bluebonnet, of course. But we rented a beach home a while back because we wanted somewhere to go boating. So now we have a darling little place in a big group of regions where we can not only go out on the boat, but also go flying if we want, as the area has an airport available. It’s really fun! We use the beach house mostly for game nights when we play U-Know. Oh y’all, we are cutthroat when we play U-Know! I adore game nights with my loves. ❤

But a few days ago, Jeremiah said he wanted to take me riding. Horseback riding! Which, if you remember from a vlog I did back in 2018, it is one of my favorite things to do in SL! I haven’t really gotten to do it much in the past year, so I thought it was pretty thoughtful of him to find a place where we could ride.

He chose this really charming community to take me to. It is a group of 6 regions and just gorgeous. There is a large area for doing more “competition” things, like steeplechase and just plain ol’ jumping fences. And there is a riding trail that goes all over the place! They also rent homes and well… you can basically guess what happened next.

We now have a very charming country home that is right along the riding trail!

Oh! I should also mention that back when Jeremiah met Birdy, it was pretty much the next day when he told me, “Oh, she is so getting a pony.”

This week, he made good on that.

My tiny cowgirl

My tiny cowgirl is such a cutie!

We finally had time last night to really go riding on the trails. Jeremiah and I had been down the trail before, but we had taken a turn somewhere and we thought the trail was pretty short for it being 6 regions long. Last night we found places with Birdy that we hadn’t seen before. Such as this ADORABLE little church!

St. Luke's In The Forest

This is called St. Luke’s In The Forest, and it’s just so sweet. It says that it is open all of the time for meditation, and there is a service on Sundays. I really liked the church a lot.

The whole community really is lovely, and the region owners are a very nice couple who have made us feel very welcomed. I’ll show pics of our little house later whenever I finish decorating it up. Or … well, I’ll probably do a house tour video, instead. I find doing house tour videos to be easier for me than showing photos of 5 different rooms and y’all know I’m all about convenience!

January Update

I keep coming in here and starting posts and getting distracted and forgetting what I meant to write about. I guess I’ve lost the knack for really blogging. I’m trying to write more lately over on the style blog, but after years of basically doing a picture and credits because I was told that’s what people wanted, it’s hard. But I’m trying anyway.

SLife has been really good lately. Oh! Oh my gosh. I .. wow, I just went back to re-read my last post and realized that I have BARELY said anything! For all you guys know (if you don’t follow me on Facebook or Plurk) is that I started dating someone new a while back. Um…

Christmas Gift

That’s right, we’re engaged! I know, some of you are probably like, “Wow, every time I look, you’re engaged.” To which I say…bite me. 🙂

Jeremiah makes me so incredibly happy, you guys. He just GETS me in a way that no other man in SL has done before. Now listen, I’ve been with some really good guys in SL. I am not talking badly about them at all. But when someone truly understands who you are, just the way you are, right in that moment? It’s priceless. He’s not going along with things I want just because. He’s not waiting for me to change to fit what he wants. I get to be just who I am right now. Do you even know how incredible that is for someone like me? I tend to think people don’t like who I am, or that they want something from me, or that I’m not good enough to be around. He doesn’t make me feel like that. I always feel wanted and loved.

I think one of the best parts about all of of this is how quickly Jeremiah picked up on being a father to my little Birdy.

My Loves

They absolutely adore each other. I did not let him meet her for a little while. I wanted to make sure that he would be staying in my life. I didn’t want to be one of those stupid SL girls who was in lovelovelove for 3 days and then single again. And plus, I had some other stuff going on and there were hurt feelings and weirdness … well, other things I won’t get into. But I knew, and he knew, pretty quickly that this was meant to be. So one night he finally got to meet her. And y’all. When I say that after 10 minutes I probably could have left and they wouldn’t have noticed? I mean it!! They hit it off so immediately, it was crazy. My beloved nerds. 🙂 (Yes, they make fun of me for not being very nerdy. But they love me anyway. LOL)

I’ve definitely been more immersed in SL lately. More than in the past 2 years combined, I’d say. I am still very into my Twitch streams, of course. But if I’m not streaming or gaming, I’m in SL. It feels like home again.

And the wedding? Oh, it’s gonna happen. We’ve actually got quite a bit of it planned already! Jeremiah is much better at planning than I am, so he has really taken so much pressure off of me as far as the wedding goes because I don’t have so much to do myself. I’ll talk more about wedding plans later.

And…I guess that’s all the update for now!

I...am...CRYING.

Hey, I Do Still Blog!

*walks in*

*blows the dust off this blog yet again*

Hi!

If there is one thing I have learned in the past year, it’s that change is inevitable. And that’s not a bad thing, but it does make for some sporadic blog posts. I don’t even know if anyone still reads this. But this blog really has always been just for me to write down thoughts and randomness, so I guess even if no one else reads it, I can always come back and look on it again.

So… Yeah, all the thoughts I had of keeping up with this blog this year, doing more posts, having more SL time…totally didn’t happen. I have truly been enjoying myself on Twitch and doing my gaming streams over there. It didn’t surprise me so much that I enjoy it, but it did surprise me how much I was willing to give to it. I love doing what I do there. I love meeting people and watching their streams and playing games with them. It’s so much fun, and although it is quite a bit of work, it almost never feels like work. There are some days where the thought of being entertaining is a struggle, and when I truly do want to just chill away from the computer, but I’ve definitely learned that on those days, I really can just take a break. I’m not obligated in any way. And somehow, knowing that makes it so much easier. Day by day, I’ve been learning how to balance everything in my life, both online and off.

So for the nosy ones (kidding!), yes, the wedding never happened. Michael and I broke up in May. Um…or June. Pretty sure it was May. Wow, self. Way to keep up. *laughs* It wasn’t a bad break up. In fact, as far as break ups go, it was probably one of the easiest ones of my entire life. We talked, a few tears were shed, and then we went to go play a video game together. Some people really are just better off as close friends, and we knew that that’s who we are to each other. He is one of my best friends. He’s still one of Birdy’s dads (she has two dads who love her dearly. What a lucky girl she is!) and we still chat almost every day. And…that’s that. No drama. No big craziness. Just two people who love and respect each other enough to know when something isn’t working out.

And if you follow me on my SL facebook, you know there is someone new in my life. It kind of came out of nowhere but yet feels like it was always supposed to be. Does that sound strange? We met over 2 years ago, back when I was vlogging, and talked usually once a month or every other month since, but never anything big. Mostly just “hi, how are you?” Then suddenly it was more than that. He asked me out on a date and I was shocked. I didn’t think guys in SL knew how to plan a date anymore. It was a terribly nice surprise! Going out on a date that I didn’t have to plan and with a guy that I didn’t have to dress?? Get outta here! *laughs* I kind of want to keep things to myself for now, though. At least on the blog. But I can tell you I’m happy. 🙂

I’ll write more later, I’m sure. Being back in SL more often makes me want to write more. ❤

It’ll Happen One Day

So I haven’t had a chance to update lately because we’ve been so so busy! But I thought I’d answer the biggest question I got after the last blog post.

When is the wedding?!

Well…here’s the thing. I don’t know if we’ll do the big wedding extravaganza. I’ve done that before and while it was lovely, I’m a much different person than I was in 2011. Neither of us feel the need to have this big massive thing. In my head, it’s just the 3 of us (Birdy is included, of course!) doing a private little ceremony, maybe with just family in attendance. I do want a wedding dress, but I picture myself in something boho and/or vintage styled. Maybe one of these days, I’ll do a live stream and go dress shopping! But I couldn’t buy anything because Michael does watch my streams, and I’d hate to ruin the surprise. Some traditions MUST be upheld, of course!

I do think that I want a party to celebrate later, though. Nothing massive, just friends and family and music and dancing. Lots of fun!

But other than there being no real news on the wedding front… That’s about all I’ve got. We are all happy when we can spend time together. Trying to balance our time has been a bit of an issue, but we’re definitely working on it.

I hope everyone has had a great February! I really am going to try to update this blog more with our adventures, but that whole balance thing I was talking about kinda makes me push some things to the side. If only there were an extra couple of hours in the day! Someone get to work on that, okay??
