I love today's Google Doodle featuring my favorite actress, Audrey HepburnRoman Holiday, Sabrina, Funny Face, My Fair Lady, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Nun's Story... I love them all! Audrey was a WWII survivor, dancer, actress, style icon, and humanitarian who taught us that:
  • "Nothing is impossible. The word itself says, 'I'm possible!'"
  • "For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
  • "I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
  • "The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years."
  • "As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."
  • "The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."
  • ...and of course, "Paris is always a good idea!
