Animal Crossing Summer

So this has been a weird summer, right? I don’t know about you, but we didn’t go on any trips, didn’t do any of our normal fun summer activities, and to be honest, we barely left the house. That doesn’t mean I haven’t had a fun summer virtually, though, thanks to Animal Crossing: New Horizons…I got to do lots of fun summer things in the game!

My animal neighbors threw me a very fun birthday party:

I went swimming in the ocean:

I visited an aquarium with a friend:

I went star gazing:

I had an all-penguin slumber party:

I enjoyed an outdoor workout with some of my animal friends:

I had a picnic on the beach:

I saw a beautiful fireworks display:

I went fishing:

I participated in a fashion show:

I went to an art gallery with a neighbor:

I attended an outdoor concert:

I spent some time in a tea garden:

I visited friends:

And neighbors:

It certainly hasn’t been the summer I planned or even wanted, but I made the best of it, and I had a lot of in-game fun!

The Perfect Island

Today was a Very Exciting Day…after four-plus months of playing every day, I finally achieved a 5-star rating in Animal Crossing: New Horizons! I have a perfect island!!!

The awards for such a rating, besides my residents’ ovation and fame forever, are a lily-of-the-valley plant and a golden watering can. The flower, in particular, is a prized item to me, because I haven’t achieved a perfect rating in every Animal Crossing game, so when I do finally get one, it’s a Big Deal. I’m so happy my animals like living on Gloriana so much…I’ve put a lot of work into designing it!

Chickadee Thursday

This week, I’m sharing a look at my recent visit to Chickadee’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons island:

I really love walking around and seeing how she’s decorated her space and what items are important to her…it’s such a fun glimpse into her personality!
