We all have memories of “that room”, growing up ours was our best friend’s grandmothers sitting room. It was for adults only, and we certainly were not to even think of taking food nor beverage anywhere near it. the carpet was white, and the furniture was posh and super uncomfortable. We used to joke that sitting in there felt like sitting in the funeral home. It was the place to be seen and not heard. Every other room felt like a second home to us, but even well into our adulthood, it felt ever so odd to be invited into that room to visit.
Two of the most vital tools in any healthy relationship are sacrifice and compromise. There are many other important parts as well, but today we are going to talk about these two.
Sacrifice : an act of giving up something valued for the sake of something else regarded as more important or worthy.
Compromise : an agreement or a settlement of a dispute that is reached by each side making concessions.
During the course of a long term relationship, there will be times where both are not just needed, but required. While it is always best to try and compromise, to find a solution that both sides can agree with, not all situations have a middle ground. That is when one side must sacrifice for the sake of the greater good.
Our relationships with Troy, have all involved a bit of both over the past nearly 5 years, and will involve greater sacrifices in future for us to have the life together that we both want. Since Troy is in the UK and we are in the USA, there is no way to compromise on a middle ground, because we can not live in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, so one of us is going to have to sacrifice our current country in order to be together.
The important thing to consider with sacrifice, is that in a healthy relationship both sides make them equally. The same goes for compromises, both sides have to give as much as they take, for the scales to balance out.

Recently we had a conversation with one of our SL sisters about decorating for the holidays, and we had to chuckle about how we have no patience for decorating in RL, but love doing it in SL. When it comes to holiday decor we have an attention span of about 2 weeks, unfortunately commercialism thinks it needs to shove every holiday down your throat 3 months before it gets here, so by the time the holiday actually comes around, you have zero desire to put it up, only to have to take it all back down again in 2 weeks.
Thankfully in SL, decorating and redecorating is as easy as a click of the mouse, and an inventory search for keywords, or if you have a Kait, just find the appropriately named holiday folder in your #Seasonal Decor folder.
I was so excited to see the Kendrick Cabin from The Green Door for TLC. You can pick it up yourself at TLC from October 18th – November 10th. The Kendrick Cabin is a cozy wood cabin with one bedroom, a kitchen/dining area, living area and bathroom. Features the home control system for security and texture change. Only 80 LI, copy/mod.
The cabin makes the perfect rural home for this InkMe Deads and Ghosts set which you can pick up at Halloweentown. The set comes with gravestones, floating ghosts, hanging skeletons, covered bodies, a giant skull and jack-o-lanterns. While you are over at Halloweentown, be sure and check out all of the other spooky holiday items, as well as seasonal fall items too.
I could not resist doing a larger staging of the cabin for my own enjoyment, and decided to include them for inspiration for you all too ! I hope you enjoy !
