the name

if you're familiar with YA fiction, then you'll know where I got the name for this island. I had just read (and fallen in love with) the Caraval Trilogy by Stephanie Garber the summer before I got ACNH, so it felt right to name my very first island after the series.

I grew up going to the Smokey Mountains every year with my family for a week. we would rent a cabin and spend our time finding waterfalls, driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and exploring all the small mountain towns we came across. so naturally, when I realized how much I loved terraforming in acnh, I knew I needed to pull from those memories and create a mountain town with forestcore vibes. I set it in summer so that the hydrangea would be in bloom, as they are one of my favorites.
