First of all, Callixta my gosh! Thank you for nominating me?! I've never been asked/nominated to do something and this feels... Overwhelming. I know that's a big reaction to not that grand of a thing (for some), but still!! I was so flattered you would think of me.
Second of all, your compliments are making me feel speechless, thank you for such kind and loving words.
Thirdly, Ariadne has used her ethereal speech, once again, to beautifully describe Alexa- the hard to describe wonder that she is. I will never be fully ready to grasp how Ariadne plays with words, it's beyond anything and everything.
Now to write! (This will get messy and unorganized so bear with me)
When I think of your, "legacy" I am overwhelmed with visions of flowers, warm orangey light, soft barn names, and cobblestone paths, walked on by elegantly crafted Oldenburgs, who wear shining metal horseshoes. I see pictures of fairytale books decorated with your special pictures and little pink, delicate flowers.
As I start thinking about things I believe that these visions are true and embody much of the light you shine on us all. You are one of the ray's that the sun shine's through stormy clouds.
You have this astounding way of combining soft words to get your names for your stable's. I know you've changed your stable name a few times but I think my favourite's are Honeybrook, and Foxberry. You combine words so effortlessly. Like it is a craft you've been studying for so long. Honey and brook. How is it you've combined such lovely words into name(s) that truly leave a mark on us all?
I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know you a little, and be able to call you a friend on this forum. You are so kind, thoughtful, loving, and sweet. You share your love through the sparkly words you send around, in the form of love filled compliments.
I feel so proud and am very appreciative of the fact that I have... Let me count.. Four horses made by you. Oliver, Chalvados, Broadway, and Automne. I don't know how you do it but gosh you have such a wonderfully unique way of crafting your horses. I swear each of them have been chiseled by a dedicated sculptor, and then carefully painted to emit fairytale energy. I find it quite strange that you have three (!!!) of my horses. A stable and person I admire so much owns three horses of mine. What?!?!
I admire so much the way you intricately build and decorate your barns. I'm sure their's a community of fairies dancing around and resting softly in the flowers you place around your barns. I'm sure your horses are also visited by these fairies, which is where they receive their mysterious magick!
I adore your writing, it's filled with ethereality (sorry that's not a word, but I'm making it one) and simplicity. Your characters are so vivid.
Every single thing you post belongs in a fairytale book. An old one too. A bit dusty, a lost treasure. Carefully decorated with golden trims, and small details trickled in.
There is most definitely something hidden in your posts. Like a mystery, kind of like Narnia. A beautiful mystery. Although your hidden mystery has not yet been discovered, I hope I'll someday find words for it.
I'm so inspired by you, and this thread. Thank you Alexa for creating this and giving me the chance to vent about my love for Calli and her creativity.
I totally forgot to add what I think I may be known for.
I don't think it's much. Perhaps my comments to people who I really admire. I love to send people I look up to heartfelt messages.
@Nicole-Loeffler I know you from my first sims 3 equstrian forum ( & It's loong long time ago). I admired you there & I'm doing it today.
