today is my daughter's sweet sixteenth birthday. i can't believe she is that old, yet i can't believe she is that young. but this is not the exact sort of present i got her - no she got something very modest instead. this is just something i wish i had the courage to wear when i was in my 20's or 30's, slim and flirty. and it's french. rosie loves french things.
but mostly i painted and posted it because it is pink and pretty and makes me think of her today.
