Luisa (of Novembrance fame) tagged me for another meme. This one is quite different from most I've seen. You're supposed to post the 6th photo from your 6th folder (in i-photo, I assume) and this is mine.
Here is my daughter, The Princess, lounging on a chair overlooking the ocean at a dear friend's beach house in Laguna. We were there during the first week of January, when everyone's sick of the cold and the snow and the inversion layer, and Laguna is at its loveliest. The beach house was a haven of serenity, with unbelievable private views of the cliffs and the ocean. It was a wonderful time to steal away, both for a mother-daughter retreat, a get-together with friends who feel more like family, and a chance to paint. I offer you this scene, now, in the same spirit of warmth and escape.
In fact, I already did a painting of this exact scene (sans all the houses on the hill):
Feel free to hang out here for a few minutes and catch some warmer rays...
while I tag Kazzy. And Melanie J. And That Girl From Brazil.
And, really, anyone else who wants to link up. Because this one is random and fun.
