You Are Always With Me Nemi

/ Ivyana | Szondi /

Dear Nemi,

Never was I prepared to write this, since I wanted to believe this day would never come.

You were the beauty of Second Life. Friendships came and went but only you remained. Any time someone needed a helping hand or a kind word, you would be that person. You were always so courageous and didn’t deserve the pain and suffering you had in your life. You have encouraged so many people along the way. You always were the voice of reason. You had the sweetest personality Nemi and now I have to let you go.

A Memorable Summer

/ Ivyana | Szondi /

Recently, I went out of my comfort zone. I participated in the Blogger & Vlogger Network’s (BVN) Collaboration Challenge! To my delight, I was paired with the multi-talented Kess Crystal from The Glamour Sauce blog. Going through her blog and Flickr stream, I discovered that Kess is a great writer and photographer. Every one of her photos tells a story. She fills the scene with her exquisite compositions. Kess’ ability to capture various emotions through her photography is a thing of beauty. Many thanks to Kess Crystal and the Blogger & Vlogger Network for this fun challenge.
