Are you always expected to be strong, constantly witty, always energetic, or glamorous? Maybe you are all of those things most of the time. But it is ok to let your guard down and to be open, be vulnerable, and to let a different side show. Let someone in (isn't that what a good...

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Day Is Don Photo from here How is it that Slim Aarons so perfectly captures the life I lead now with photos that are decades old? I guess this just means pool parties and chic gatherings are timeless! I had a truly fabulous time at my belated birthday...

How will you go forward if you don't make those small changes inside and out? I know that my own style has changed as I've made bold (to me) gestures; I started by wearing pieces I would have never tried before like a large mixed media necklace to a bright jewel toned shirt. Little by little,...

Abraham Lincoln Magazine editorials don't usually inspire my New Year resolutions. But it was a combination of the fresh, lovely tone of these pictures and my viewing of "Super 8" yesterday (what a lovely and innocent love story) that led me to think of the goals I want to accomplish for...

Benjamin Franklin "Levitation" series from Franck Bohbot taken in Paris, Madrid, New York, and Barcelona I love a New Year and all its possibilities. It's a chance to be reborn, take new chances, and find new opportunities. I'm excited to shed 2010 and get ready for a great 2011. I have...

to my Amazon Kindle and am rediscovering my love for books (anything from "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" to the Millenium series). One of my favorite books is "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho.
