They went to El Paseo for dinner. Steve and I have celebrated many of our anniversaries there. Chris had explained to them he was going to ask Frieda to marry him that night. It sounds like El Paseo, with their new owners, gave them the most wonderful evening imaginable. I highly recommend El Paseo for special occasions. They returned to Sausalito for the evening, and took the ferry back to the city this afternoon.
Chris had left his car there while Frieda had taken Bart over, and now they are home. I am deeply touched. I wonder why it feels so safe. Perhaps it is a circle complete when your child finds their mate. It is a most pleasing evening for me tonight. I am warm, happy, pleased and safe.
Chris said how much he wished he could tell "Grama Boop." As though of you who follow me know, she died two years ago. We both know she is here for this special occasion. We both know how much she would adore Frieda and we both miss her so much.
Sleep tight. Sweet dreams. Use shadows like steps to rise on light.
Ah, Chris made a special book just for Frieda. I look forward to seeing it and I must say, this wonderful woman - her laughter shines even more brightly than the beautiful diamond he worked so hard to find for her. She is like a princess in a fairy tale with her laughter ringing out like jewels. They bought an old copy of Alice in Wonderland in Sausalito. I will also give them my copy. I remember well when I was about eight and my grandmother took me into a book store on the corner of the University of Indiana campus and let me choose any book I wanted. I chose Alice in Wonderland.
Ah! Dreams come true. Dream bright and may your dreams sound with the twinkling laughter of Frieda and delight.
