Daybreak Cottage

Welcome to Daybreak Cottage

This quaint, beach cottage is decorated in cool, soothing colors and is perfect for newlyweds, empty nesters, or even young roommates. Situated right on the beach in Starlight Shores, the calming sound of the ocean and the smell of the salt breeze is sure to relax you as soon as you walk in the door.

The home features an open plan living area with living, dining, and kitchen moving seamlessly from one to the other. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, though one bedroom is currently in use as a studio for a writer and artist. The master suite opens onto a small, private deck overlooking the ocean and is perfect for sipping tea and reading a book as you watch the sun set.

Piece of Heaven

Good news is, the job is going well. Granted, it is certainly not something I want to do with the rest of my life. Probably not even something I want to continue when James and I move to wherever we will be going next. However, it works to keep me busy and enables me to save money for many things: a new computer (yay for shiny new stuffz), my husband's arsenal, a babymoon, and, maybe even an actual baby.

Bad news is, the job keeps me from simming as much as I used to. I am more motivated to work on it when I have time but I have less time so I don't get as much done as I have in my head. The Kidds have pretty much all but been abandoned and I am not really interested in continuing them. Not that I was that far along anyway. I am only in Generation 4 of the Avendales. I would love to attempt a random legacy AND I had an idea for a non-legacy more soap-opera-y type of story. More on that later, maybe. Plus, I haven't uploaded anything in forever! I have some override mods that I feel are useful, but small, sitting in my mods folder that I use, that I just haven't cared enough to prepare an upload post. Should probably do that at some point.

I'd love to work on a lot or 3. Or upload my split level from Aberstrathe. That house may just be my pride and joy because of the detail in it. I had been saving it for the world download but that's never gonna happen. I'm not even being optimistic about it anymore.

It also appears that a lot of people would like me to host another story contest. I'm interested. Just need to find the time and come up with a template that is different than last time. And find judges, of course. That might be the hard part!

Maybe I will start working on the lot and the overrides soon. Then see where I am in the Avendales and contemplate if I can handle 2 stories at the same time.
