An Update From Eladrienne

 This is what I saw when I logged into SL a few days ago...

My lighthouse was gone. My bunnehs, my roses, my little tiny stump, my home. And yet, what did I expect? It was my own fault. Time had slipped by me and I hadn't realized how long it had been since I had been in SL last. All of my properties--from my shops in Regency and Raglan to my museum to my place in Taloo. All gone. I felt a little heartbroken in a way, as I had worked so hard for all of those things inworld. While I really missed my friends, I had become discouraged about SL. Between not being able to keep up with designing and definitely not being able to compete with learning how to do sculpties and now mesh, I watched my lindens dwindle and dwindle. Logging in was starting to make me sad, and that's not what I wanted from my virtual life. I do apologize to Lunar, Tensai, Des and Gabi for not being more proactive about my properties, but a certain someone genuinely had me distracted...
Yup, that's him!!!! Around this time last year I was about to enter the hospital and experience the most harrowing and nervewracking ordeal of my life so far, but he has been worth every single moment. He is now 20 lbs (after starting out at 2 lbs! Wow!) and is 9 months old. He is one of the happiest, sweetest babies you will ever meet and I am so thankful for him every day.

My husband has suggested that perhaps there is a certain measure of freedom to being propertyless in SL now. "Maybe you can go on a walkabout," he said. "Explore its world again and what you used to love about it."

See you on the Grid.

This is awesome. So glad that you AND FAMILY are all well. Even seeing someone logged into SL brings about a certain comfort that that person must be OK at worst, if they can find time to spend in-world; it's the 'not knowing' that can worry people.

Am so happy for you!

I just scared heck out of everyone for a mile around screaming at that adorable baby face!
So very, very happy to hear from you and see the other end of those adorable toes :)
We are just starting to re-engage in SL ourselves after taking a needed break, hoping to find the fun again.

Here's hoping you reengage with Caledon & SL sooner, rather later. - HyBosch
