Liebster Award 2017

This is simply unbelievable! Exactly two years ago I was nominated for my first Liebster Award and here I am two years later with yet another nomination! YAY! Thank you so much, Raymondsanti, for nominating the Loewe Legacy for this amazing award!

Those of you who don’t know Ray’s wonderful story should head over to her lovely blog right now – Set Apart is a beautifully written DIFT challenge, currently in the 9th generation. This talented writer doesn’t lack originality and her imagination has no limits. Her story was among the first ones I started reading and have been enjoying it ever since. She’s also an awesome fellow simmer, all her comments always put a smile on my face. Oh, and if you’re a big fan of unicorns as me you’ll totally love her story, I promise!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE NOMINATION!


The rules for the Liebster Award:

  • Say thank you to the person who has nominated you for the award.
  • Answer the 11 questions the person has asked you.
  • Nominate people (comment on their blog to let them know).
  • Ask the people you have nominated 11 questions.

Raymondsanti asked me these questions:

1. What is your favorite season?

I was born in May so it probably comes as no surprise that my favorite season is used to be Spring… then I moved to Italy where I have developed an allergy to the local flora and just like that the springtime became my least favorite season of them all, unfortunately. I love when the snow finally melts away and the nature starts slowly awakening from the long winter sleep… I believe that there’s something special about every season, but for the past seven years my favorite one has been Autumn. I really like the time of year when the fresh green of the trees changes into the warm palette of golden yellows and ruby reds… Mother Nature never ceases to inspire me.

2. Do you have a favorite childhood memory? What is it?

Oh I have more than one, but the most favorite one of them all is definitely the summer of 2001 when my parents brought home our beloved Westie (West Highland White terrier), may she rest in peace ❤

She left for the doggy heaven earlier this spring. I know that she was a lucky dog who lived a happy long life full of fun and love, but I will never forgive myself I wasn’t there on her last day. I watched my parents and my sisters bury her in the back of our garden, by the fireplace where she spent many many lovely moments with us… If you live abroad and visit your family a few times a year believe me, these are the heart-breaking moments when you wish you had never left.

3. Do you prefer to write by hand or on a computer?

By hand. I have this obsession of buying empty notebooks of different sizes, colors and materials in which I never write. Maybe I am still waiting to find something worth writing about or I simply don’t want to ‘ruin’ them… Isn’t that strange? I think it is, but I love my notebook collection nonetheless.

4. How prepared are you for the zombie apocalypse?

I’m not. Can you befriend a zombie?

5. Which character was the hardest for you to kill off?

Until this point I have killed off only Elisabeth, the heir of the 2nd generation. I wish I didn’t have to do it, but she was stuck in the sneaking mode and was sneaking everywhere since her teenage years. I still feel really bad about it.

6. What is something you hope to achieve?

I dream of having my own artistic studio where I create and craft beautiful handbags for beautiful people to love and enjoy.

7. Paperback or hardback?

Hardback. I think it gives a special value to any book.

8. What is something you really want to learn?

To speak and write correct English.

9. If you could change one thing about yourself right now, what would it be?

I wish I could sing!

10. Will you post a picture of your favorite animal here?

Dear friends, meet my my fluffy friend Ophelia ❤

Hi guys!

I bring you a new episode of the Loewe Legacy starring Sebastian Vanderburg – one of the most famous Sims from Hidden Springs. You may be wondering what is this guy doing in Monte Vista, well, to make a long story short, he moved there together with the rest of his relatives at the very beginning of the Chapter Three… Now, he finally earned himself the first cameo appearance in this story. Oh, and he’s got a big news for the Loewes. Wondering what that might be? Well, time to find out!

Happy reading everyone, I’ll be back in May!

🙂

3.30 Christmas Birthday Party

Dear friends and fellow simmers,

I’d like to apologize for such a long wait. I’m sorry guys. I really try hard to stick to my posting schedule, but it’s not always easy. As you see it’s Thursday, not Tuesday. At this point I think I will simply post a new update when it’s ready so from now on you’ll just see the month in which the next episode will be published.

I love the Loewes as much as you do, only recently I simply don’t have enough time to dedicate to their story… I don’t want to abandon them completely, but I would like to let you know that there could be fewer chapters in the forthcoming months. My goal is to finish writing the Chapter Three this summer. There are seven more installments to go. Wish me luck and in the meantime enjoy this episode in which the family celebrates Nathalie’s first birthday!

Thanks for sticking around,

Kate

Hello everybody!

I’m so sorry I made you wait for this update longer than I planned, but work got in the middle of everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. I had practically no free time for myself and really started hating my lifestyle a lot… In the past month I’ve been working overtime every day and since it takes me around two hours to get to/from work I’ve been coming home very late and with just enough energy to make a dinner, take a shower and hit the sack. I am pretty much in a zombie state right now…

Anyway, I finally managed to put together the last update dedicated to Nathan. Don’t worry, you’ll see him again later on in the story. Hopefully, I can find some time to write the next episode which will take place in Monte Vista and publish it the next Tuesday. Yes, you read well. Tuesday. I decided to move my posting day from Monday to Tuesday for no particular reason. I hope you guys don’t mind… Oh, and don’t forget to download Arcadia. It’s amazing, especially at sunset!

Now, enjoy the story while I take a nap.

😴
