Anxious to Begin

Fall 2001 - Fischer Family
Avery is 23, Gideon is 25
Narrated by Avery Monroe

I couldn't believe this day had come already. I hadn't ever been the kind of girl who fantasized about her wedding, or expected it to come so early in my life, but here I was.

Better Things To Do

Summer 2001 - Campbell Family
Micah is 41, Karinna is 40, Jules is 17, Wyatt is 16
Narrated by Micah Campbell

 It's taking me a while to adjust to being a grandfather. Karinna and I waited a very long time to have a second child, and taking care of my own newborn, Bennett, while at the same time taking care of Dalton, my grandson. The boys will be raised more like brothers than uncle and nephew.

The Word Committed

Summer 2001 - Summers Family
Flint is 22, Erica is 32, and Brynn is 21

Narrated by Flint Summers

 Man, this summer had been going great. My band started to take off, and we even got signed to a label. Hunter and I worked so hard for this, and it was thrilling to know I was going to get paid for doing something I already love to do. We still jam together for fun, and bring our A-game to recording sessions.

The Right Sim

Summer 2001 - White Family
Narrated by Avery Monroe
Avery is 22, Gideon is 24

Usually, when something completely changes your life, it disguises itself as something completely ordinary. Like a random phone call in the middle of the afternoon.

Good Morning

Summer 2001 - Hernandez
Olivia is 26, Ignazio is 30, Nina is 17, Martin is 9
Narrated by Olivia Hernandez

I had been worried that life after the wedding would be boring. Everyone said the romance would slow down, and mundane life would replace it. I've been pleased to see that, so far, that hasn't happened with Ignazio. If anything, he uses it as an excuse to be even more romantic. His favorite name for me is "Mrs. Hernandez".

Number Four

Summer 2001 - Costillo Family
Narrated by Rowena Costillo
Victor is 42, Rowena is 39, Daniel is 16, Leo is 2

 This summer has been creeping by, so slowly. My days are filled with diaper changes, feedings, and housecleaning.

Sim So Small

Campbell Family

They say that doctors make the worst patients. That was especially true in Karinna Campbell's case.

Looking Forward

White Family

Amelie White never used to be the type to have to primp and fuss before seeing a date, but, then again, she had never felt this way about a date before.

First Annual Port Fest!

(Warning- Pic heavy!)

The whole town was bristling with excitement in the days leading up to Port Fest. The Port Manteau Arts Association came up with the idea of holding a music festival during the summer. Not just a small concert featuring a few bands, but a day-long event showcasing the best talent in SimNation.

Starting out the Festival were newcomers London Fire, with their upbeat, punk rock sound, they got the crowd in the mood to party.

Out From Under

Lansing Family

Erika was finally out from under her postpartum depression and the deep disappointment of losing her position as mayor. She was being a good mother, again, and was feeling up to the task of living.

Simple, Sweet, and Quiet

Hernandez Family Wedding

 "There you are," Karinna Campbell said, finding her sister holed up in the upstairs bedroom. "We've been looking for you. Can't have a wedding without a bride!"

Be Judged

"Please, boy-o. Tell me you're coming to me with some good news," Mrs. Fischer said as her son sat down beside her on the sofa.

"I have great news, Mom."

On My Own

The morning began as most mornings did for Logan and Vera White. One of the triplets would wake before the others and start to cry and make a fuss.

Security System

Brynn Lovitz had just fallen into bed, exhausted. She was working round-the-clock on recording her debut album and opening for local acts. She was featured on the hit single of the two man rock group The Thrash's new album. She loved it, but she didn't realize going for her dream would leave her so worn out. Just before she drifted off, a clatter in the hallway of her apartment made her sit straight up.

Moderately attractive Pt. 2

It seemed like an eternity before Gideon got a response to his date request from Avery. He was glad she called, but he was also aggravated that she led him on for so long. It seemed so arrogant to him. But there was something about her he couldn't quite put his finger on, and he liked that, so he buried his resentment. He got a haircut, he got new clothes, and he was ready.

Moderately attractive

It was a big, big day for Gideon Fischer. Gideon's Books, the bookstore he owned, had been doing phenomenally well. Today was the day he was going to have a published author come in and do a reading and a signing, and he hoped it would attract more customers. It didn't hurt that he was a huge fan of the novel. He meticulously prepared for the day ahead.

Fingers Crossed

This dinner was everything to Ignazio. He'd been dating Olivia for a few months, now, and he was going to talk about moving her in tonight at dinner.

Rack 'Em Up

The illness and sudden death of the Sr. Mr. Costillo had come as a shock. A perpetual cough (brought on by years of smoking) he'd had for years turned out to be late-stage lung cancer. He joked that it was revenge from beyond the grave, by all the poor souls who he left sleepin' with the fishes. He left his family struggling to sort out his affairs.
