Welcome to the New Eden Community Blog

Recently branched off from the older community of Eden, many younger residents have chosen to move away from their ancestoral land to a different location, called New Eden. Although most residents still hold closely to their family ties and history they are eager to start a new life in a place they can make their own.

Moving In: The Straight Family

Christopher and Sophie are a young married couple fresh out of university. Christopher is the youngest son of actress Miriam Connelly, who still lives in Eden with her third and current husband, Christopher's stepdad, as does Chris' older brother Byron. His father is supposedly living somewhere in downtown Eden, but Christopher doesn't know much about him, since his father left his mother before he was born.

Christopher realizes he should be grateful for the family he does have in his life when he looks at his wife's situation. Sophie has no family at all to speak of. She was one of many of the lost children of Sim Nation with no home and no family ties. Luckily a special grant allowed her to attend ESC where she met and fell in love with her now husband, Christopher.
More urban in their tastes and interested in being where the action is, Christopher and Sophie have decided to move into a townhouse in the center of New Eden near the local shops and restaurants. Though the lot is small, the house is actually spacious on the inside with 3 bedrooms, two living areas and there is even a small yard out back.

The house is the perfect size for the two of them and the baby that's on the way. There may even be room for one or two more. Whether or not there is another child in the Straight's future depends on who you ask. Christopher would love to have a large family, but Sophie is more hesitant. She is just starting her career as a professional athlete and hopes to make it to the top of the career someday. She sometimes worries that multiple pregnancies will keep her from achieving her dreams.Of course, it's easier for Christopher to dream of having a perfect family when he doesn't have to go through the pregnancies and when he is currently unemployed and able to be a stay at home dad. Luckily Sophie is more than happy to be the breadwinner in the family.

Today the Straights aren't worrying about big questions or plans about the future. They're just enjoying each other's company and doing the things they enjoy doing on a quiet, rainy day at home together.

And it looks like they could be spending a few more days like this, as Sophie has been officially placed on maternity leave.
