Happy Birthday, Audrey Hepburn






  













































Audrey Hepburn has been my idol since I was 5 years old when my parents brought me to Radio City Music Hall at Christmas time to see the Rockettes and the movie Charade.

Although I was young and didn't realize it at the time - she set a standard for me that day - one that was out of reach, but it still existed.

As a tribute, I chose the song Moon River for my first dance as a married woman at my wedding. 

She was, and always will be, the epitome of elegance, unstoppable grace, and unbridled compassion.

Thank you Audrey Hepburn, for your wonderful movies, your fabulous fashion sense, and your words of wisdom.    

*****


May your day be filled with style and grace.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  1. Very beautiful despite not having perfect features. The YouTube of her singing Moonriver has got to be one of the most charming and soothing vignettes out there - perfect to end the day on! Also, what fortitude; how she did her work
    with UNICEF, I don't know.....

    I have a friend that while she doesn't LOOK like Audrey exactly, there is something with her eyes and shape of the face. I dare not tell her - she would think I'm lying.

    Audrey was superb....so rare and wonderful. Glad they recognized it in Hollywood!

  4. Amen! Young girls today sure could use someone with her grace, poise, and charitable spirit to look up. She is someone whose beauty truly came from within.
