The Light in the Darkness

Here's my beauty.

I got to spend some time with her yesterday. We all went to the Charthouse in Malibu, which was quite lovely. (How could it not be!)

I talked her into letting me take her picture in front of the fountain-in-the-wall at the entrance.

Daughters don't get any better than this one! (Even in that uncomfortable moment when one of our dinner guests mistook my boyfriend to be with my daughter instead of me! I didn't correct the guest, but the look on my face made Erin have to walk away for fear she'd laugh much too hard and ungraciously reveal the faux pas!)



There's little of the melancholy element in her, my lord. She is never sad but when she sleeps, and not ever sad then; for I have heard my daughter say she hath often dreamt of unhappiness and waked herself with laughing. ~ Wm. Shakespeare

Teri, I guess you were not lying about her being a hottie after all.

BBC said...

Being a hottie can be a problem.

But I hope that she is doing well.

As I hope that you are doing well.
Hugs.

I lost track of what I read or was going to say. They say the mind is the first to go and they are right

She is a beauty. And the quote is pefect. I suppose the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree, right?

Pretty girl!

...and you quoted the Bard... from Much Ado About Nothing, no less, which is my second favorite after Hamlet.

Jami said...

Wow! She IS a hottie ... just like her Mom. Just out of curiosity, does she say "fuck" a lot in her conversations?

And BaDoozie, I heard that the mind was the second thing to go, but I can't remember what was first.

She is beautiful, and obviously possesses excellent character. I want to get along as well with my daughter when she's your daughter's age as you do with yours.

The Exception said...

What a kid! She definitely must be a chip of the old block - like mother like daughter!

I also hope that I have such a relationship with my daughter.

Worker Mommy said...

Funny, when you said the Charthouse I read it "Cathouse". I thought...really ???

Anyhoo, what a beauty glad you had a good time.
