Liebster Award

I have been nominated for a Liebster Award by some pretty awesome bloggers -Carla at Sullivan, Shannon at Simdale Valley Post, Emma at Around Aleaton VT at Kulo Seeri, and Maisie at Millwood. Thank you so very much. It means a lot that I was nominated :)


Like Carla, I am going to answer the questions from each simmer separately. I'm continuing with Shannon's questions 

  1.   What’s you all-time favorite place in the world?  (If you don’t feel comfortable giving the location, just a description). Does the spa count? LOL!
  2.   Who is your favorite, non-sims author? Hard one, since I'm not a serial author reader, lol. It's been ages since I read a good non-academic book, lol. I do like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and Jacob Have I Loved, also Abel's Island. Yes they are children's books, but when I want to read a good book, I reach for a tried and true favorite because I don't have time to try new books and be disappointed, lol. 
  3.  When did you start playing Sims? 2001 or 2002 I think
  4.   What is your favorite part of playing or blogging sims? The sims interacting, love looking at the relationships and their interactions with their environment. A lot more fun, and smaller, than barbies. 
  5.  What is your least favorite part of playing or blogging sims? Photo formatting, ugh
  6.   Where do you find/get inspiration for your blog’s characters? A lot of my sims are part of a long lineage that stretches to my TS1 sims. But I have some significant inspirations like celebrities (Starr Grey=Marilyn Monroe, Alisa Crawston=Janet Jackson), a combination of strong female characters (S'Ahmisa Warwick), what society says we shouldn't be like, ancient history and legends (Anthony Wren). Most times, I get more inspiration for facets of my sims characters that allows me to flesh them a bit deeper and richer, like Ming's non-filter on her words or Bradford's fierce protection.
  7.   What about the setting, how did you come up with the imaginary aspects of your sims’ world? My travels and my computer specs, lol. Since I have limited time to play, my goal is keep loading times short, so that limits how much detail I put into my world. But then I discovered smaller terrains and I love it. Lots of detail, not so much lag. My main hood is inspired by a small coastal island not in the tropics that has all four seasons and a big urban center yet some rural land. LOL, so essentially no where and every where.
  8.   How did you decide to start blogging about your game? After reading Simmerville's website, I started a website and became a part of that community. So much fun! I loved, and still love, the for sim by sim world.
  9.   Do you know any simmers in your everyday life, or just online?  I haven't met any unless you count my brother and cousin who are more casual gamers.
  10.  On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being completely), how freaked out are you when the power/internet go out and you can’t play or read or write about sims? 3 in terms of sims related, but probably more since I have to figure out how to move around young kiddos and I would be freaking out about my freezer stash for my baby. O yea, that would be about a 15. My precious milk! LOL!
  11.  All time favorite sims moment? Being named SUN president on the Simmerville website and getting a 2003 Top Theme Site Award from SimStash for my TS1 hood


  1. I've always admired what you can do with such a small hood! You have to consider things I do not (with a relatively large map) and you still always make it work for your sims. They certainly never seem to be wanting for anything in Apple Valley!

    1. Thank you, I love making the hood look lived in and it's a lot easier with a smaller hood terrain.

  2. Ah Simmersville website, that was a good one. I really like that there is so much history and lineage in your hood, and find it inspiring that it goes back to TS1. I played an entirely different game back then, like my own family, which I can't even imagine playing that way now.

    1. I miss Simmerville, but now with so many different sim games it's hard to get such a community going again. So thankful for the TS2 community :)


Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment! :)
