Dahlia for Darby

Here is Darby' Under the Sea request for her golden birthday:




Dahlia loves anything under the sea.  When she first learned about the actual size of a blue whale, she had to sit down and take deep, slow breaths because she got light-headed.  She can not believe all the stuff that goes on under the sea and she wishes that she lived in a submarine so that she could watch the octopi mingle with the fish.  While doing this she could drink pink lemonade and draw the fish in her sketch book using the brightest, most neon-colored crayons in existence.  Dahlia feels very at home in the water.  She can do more under-water summersaults than anyone else she knows.  It is for this reason that she believes her parents adopted her from a mermaid family, though they tell her it isn't so.

Happy Golden Birthday Darby!
