Second time was a charm.
Chloe's 21st birthday was on June 10th, but she asked that we celebrate it on the 9th, since she was leaving for her summer job as a camp director on the 10th.
She gathered some of her closest friends for dinner at the best sushi restaurant in town, and we followed it (a few hours later) with an after-party at our house. Chloe wanted us all to be with her when she took her first drink of alcohol.. at midnight.
Chloe had her first drink at 12:09am and decided about 3 minutes later that she didn't care for the taste of alcohol.
Here's to you, sweet girl! You make life better with your laugh, your stories, those purple stilettos, and that Natalie Portman smile.
