Beautiful Ladies

Tomorrow is my birthday and many people ask if I’m afraid if growing old. I don’t think so, I feel calmer and less anxious (though sometimes you can’t really tell, ha!) and tend to get upset by other people less easily. Also, the passing away of my darling Aunt Nancy last year made a really large impact on me.

On the physical side, if I had to name some of the most beautiful people I’d say – Carmen Dell’Orefice, Lyn Slater (her awesome blog is here!), the late Diana Vreeland and Sophia Loren. It would be an honour to grace as gracefully as these ladies.
