Happy Birthday, Eternally Yours!

Has it been 3 years already!?!

Three years ago today I was a month-and-a-half into one of the most difficult years of my life so far.  It also was the day I decided to start writing the story of a fairy and her husband living in the tiny town of Moonlight Falls.  I had a plot in mind for them but things never seem to work out the way you plan and that was true both in game and in my life that year.

Eternally Yours sustained me through my broken wrist, my kidney surgery, my grandmother’s death, getting fired, failing my senior thesis, and a horrible depression that took hold throughout the year.  It wasn’t the blog that kept me going, however.  It was you, my readers, who cheered me on and cheered me up during all the good and bad in my life.  You put up with long disappearances of the author, cruel deaths of beloved characters, hard drive crashes, and everything else I threw your way.  You are AMAZING!

You all know that I have a very passionate love/hate relationship with my blog.  So today, I’m celebrating you!  Without my readers, fans, followers, and lurkers I would have abandoned this hot mess of a story long ago (and it’s only getting messier from here)!  In order to kick this birthday party off the right way, I’m hosting a little lottery.

From now until the February 29th, post your favorite moment from the story in the comments.  On March 1st, I’ll run everyone’s name through a name randomizer and choose a winner!

PRIZES:

  • 1st Place: Sims 3 Store World (must be purchasable with simpoints)
  • 2nd Place: Sims 3 Store Set (1900 simpoints or less)
  • 3rd Place: Sims 3 Store Premium content (1000 simpoints or less)
  • Everyone who leaves a comment will get a thank you gift!

RULES:

  • Post your favorite memory from any generation in the comments
  • Include your Sims 3 username and wishlist in the comment to make it easier to find you if you win

Again, I cannot thank you enough for your kindness and support over the past three years.  I consider the friends that I’ve made through The Sims to be some of the best I’ve ever had.  I wouldn’t trade you all for anything.

Here’s to more years of fun and madness on Eternally Yours!
