For the Love of Earth – Day 5

Ahhh, the day of love. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

Personally, I believe we should share our love 24-7-365, so this day is just another day to say I LOVE YOU to my Bae.

Over the week, I’ve shared many reasons why I love my sweetie, and today, instead of talking a lot, I will be sharing pictures of my beloved and me… AND rockin’ some wares of my love!

It was so much fun to look through the, literally, 100s of photos I have to pick a few to share in this post. I smiled a lot, and in viewing them, they made me realize that Bae and I have done “this” right. What is THIS? This relationship thing. We started as friends, having fun and learning about each other. We moved into dating monogamously, and again, continued to learn about each other, have fun, and provide a lot of encouragement and positivity to one another’s endeavors. We then, finally, moved into a marriage that works VERY well for us… our personalities, our wants and needs.

Whenever I part from Earth, I tell her I love her. It’s automatic, but in looking throughout this week at why I love her, I felt that love in my chest, and it made me smile. I’m lucky to have a better-half that rocks as hard as granite as my EarthyPoo.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Baebaebae!














I’m the bunny… LOL

For the Love of Earth – Day 4

Why do I love Bae? Let me count the ways…

Well, I’ve been doing that this week already, haven’t I?

And today’s post is no different.

Today, I want to talk briefly about being eclectic, about being zany, and about NOT CARING what anyone thinks about said eclectic and zany behaviors.

One of the things I love about Earth the most is her eclectic style. She has a way of putting together a ‘fit, finding an answer to a solution, and saying off-the-wall things that most people wouldn’t think to do or say.

In December 2011, a lot of that zaniness and eclectic style presented itself. It was a special month–not only was it Christmas, but also it was my bae’s birthday, and we wanted to throw a party. I let Bae pick the theme for the party.

When she said hip hop, I wasn’t too surprised. I knew she dug ol’ school hip hop, and her bro can kill the wheels of steel as DJ. There wasn’t a drop of eclectic… or zany in that response.

But ahhh, with the Bae, there is always an M. Night Shyamalan “twist.”

And here it was… hip hop… to the GRAVE. People had to, basically, be hip hop zombies. LOL



Bae busting a move.

Needless to say, that party was hot to death (pun intended).

Before the party, Bae and I went and purchased her a b’day gift and somehow I ended up with a gift, too.

It wasn’t something like new shoes, new ‘fits, a cruise. It was a tiger. For her. A dragon for me.



I spend a lot of time shaking my head, giggling, and laughing when I’m with Earth because she always has the twist that just keeps me intrigued. It doesn’t hurt that her eclectic and zany style represents itself in her ability to be silly (because Lord knows I is a silly one!).

I mean, we all know how much women try to look good all the time on the grid, but any woman who would play Rudolph to my Donner can’t be all bad.

For the Love of Earth – Day 3

I think the most nervous day I’ve ever had on the grid came when I asked Earth to be my girl. We had been talking for a while, and we were spending a LOT of time together. Where there was one, there was usually the other. One of my daughters was asking me “So, are you and Earth a couple yet?” and I had a few other whispers going into the ears from other people.

I knew that Earth and I got along well, I knew that we were both creative, talented, pretty ambitious, and thoroughly enjoyed being around each other…yet…and still, I was nervous. I wasn’t sure she would say YES to my question.

So, feeling nervous and hating rejection, I decided to ask Earth to be my girl during a Thanksgiving family dinner! LOL Me, my girls, and her. No pressure whatsoever. My daughters knew I was going to ask and were very encouraging.

We spent most of the day just making nice, having good food, and great conversation.



Trust me when I say that even though we look like everything’s great, I was still a nervous wreck. My little one stayed in my inbox, asking me if I was OK. Ha!

Eventually, as we neared dessert, I pulled out some middle-school antics by performing the “passing notes in class” move. Just before dessert, a large note appeared in the dining area. For the love of me, I can’t find the picture of this moment; however, I did find the note. This is it…


I can laugh now, but after I asked, there was this deafening silence. I already told myself that if she said no, I would have to eject her from the land. LMAO. I just could NOT handle the rejection. It would not go down well with the turkey and fixings. LOL.

Luckily, however, my love said yes, and we took it slow and built our relationship before we actually took the next step in the adventure of our love affair.

For the Love of Earth – Day 2

I joined Second Life back in 2009 for a class. At first, I wasn’t that big of a fan and stepped away from SL for a few months, but eventually, I came back, made friends, and began what would be many transformations of my “self” on the grid.

I never thought about having a relationship here. I just wanted to have fun and perhaps be a pseudo-ethnographer of the lives I found on the grid.

And then I met Earth.

And my thoughts were spun off their axis.

My sweetness was a fun-loving, silly yet serious woman whom I found easy to talk to.

Although I tried to keep myself in the “we are just friends” mode, I found myself softening for my sweetie when she took me out for my rezzday.


…when we found ourselves outside of her business, her supposedly working, but both of us just chilling among the leaves under a big tree.


…when I let this woman grab not one but TWO of my donuts and scarf them down!


It was easy to fall for Earth because she’s so easy to love. With a woman like my Earth… you might fight to stay away, but her allure, her sweetness, her humor, and her eclectic jazzyfantastic self will reel you in…quickly.

For the Love of Earth – Day 1

A very special day is coming… Valentine’s Day.

And for that day of lovers and love and chocolate and flowers and enough romance to fill you until next year’s V-Day, I decided to share my love for my beautiful, talented, sweet, funny, and slightly crazy better-half, Earth Nirvana-Charisma.

From today until V-Day, I will be posting a few pics of me wearing my wifey’s wares, and sharing a fond memory of why I love her so much.

First, even though I know you’re dying to see what I’m going to wear, I’m going to share a memory with you all.

I have to go all the way back to the beginning when my beloved saw a pic of me on Facebook wearing her shirt… well, it’s not like I stole it from her closet or anything. I had bought it in-world or on Marketplace, went out somewhere on the grid, took a pic of me while I was there, and posted it on FB. She, having seen the pic, decided to let me know she liked the shirt–and it wasn’t just because she MADE it. LOL


I talk about this moment in my 2012 post, When Bae Met Bunny: An Anatomy of a Working SL Relationship (Bunny’s Version).

I had posted the above pic as my profile pic on Facebook, and on May 19, 2011, I received my very first message from Earth: Love that shirt sistah.

May 25, 2011
Shon: Aw, thanks! I picked it up a while ago, but love wearing it,

May 28, 2011
Earth: Considering I made it…that is great to hear

May 28, 2011
Shon: Ha! Now that’s funny to me. I had a FEELING you made it. *chuckling*

After this brief exchange, Bae and I spent a few months talking via Facebook, posting comments to each other’s status updates and pictures before we finally “met” in-world and started hanging out. If I didn’t have such great taste in clothes (and wasn’t a camera junkie, always needing to take a quick pic of myself), I would have never met my beloved EarthyPoo… my Baebaebae.

Thank God for fashion, huh?
