“She seemed to have a line drawn about her, as only children have. Whatever she did, she stood out." -Anita Loos
In the 85 years since Audrey Hepburn’s birth, and the subsequent 60 years since she dazzled the world in her major film debut, she continues to enchant. Billy Wilder said she was the “original, and there are no more examples, and there never will be.” Audrey cannot be duplicated. Her hair and her fashion style can be imitated, but she as an infinitely warm, magical human being, was truly rare. Though she has been derided as twee, cliche, and overrated, reduced to the Holly Golighly poster staring hollowly from the dorm room walls of countless college girls, those of us truly inspired and awed by her know she’ll always be so much more. She was a woman of simple tastes and desires, whether in her life or her clothing, yet out of this simplicity came elegance and a unique look and philosophy all her own. She was a woman of remarkable resiliency; raised in the rubble of World War II. She possessed extraordinary humility. It’s no secret that Audrey didn’t find herself much of a beauty or screen presence. Hers was an unconventional beauty, puzzling and exquisite all at once. And onscreen she only made the audience fall in love again and again. She worked hard, loved even harder, and became the woman we’d all to like to emulate.
Audrey will always be loved. I think she was overwhelmed by just how much.
Happy birthday to the sweetest, our dear huckleberry friend. (May 4, 1929 - January 20, 1993)

Ashtyn and I KILLED IT at Disneyland today!!! It was a weekday and it was drizzling - we basically had free run of the park and Ashtyn was in heaven. The entire drive there she chanted “Disneyland!” as I blasted the Little Mermaid theme song in the car.
She has been asking to go all week but she was too sick to go up until today.
She and I had so much fun :)
This is what Disneyland should always be. Pure and utter joy. The outside world is irrelevant and time is unlimited. This is what Disneyland used to be. And from time to time it reminds you that this is what happiness is and this is how life should be lived.
Biggest game changer in movie history
1. Show up. Don’t blow off a clinical to study for a test. The 8 hours you spend in your clinicals are valuable. Don’t give up any opportunities to learn. Even if you feel as though you aren’t really getting the best experience, or have a mean instructor, stick it out – immersion in patient care…
