Mother's Daughter

I think I can pretty safely say "I am my mother's daughter" - but I don't know if the same is true about my Sofia. I love anything old and decrepit - Sofia loves anything new and shiny. I like to live in old houses with history, Sofia wants to live in a modern house filled with contemporary furniture and new tiles. I like old textiles, pottery and dishes - Sofia wants new sets of dinnerware from Ikea. On holiday, I want to spend time at the museums or in the old gardens, Sofia would rather find a trendy place to shop.  Oh well - as I continue to walk into the past, Sofia waltz's into the future....hopefully holding my hand!
