a few things of Beauty


Ever since I was in young one of my many obsessions in life has been Audrey Hepburn. She is beautiful on the inside and the outside. Except for maybe her lungs. I still remember my first Audrey Hepburn movie. It was Funny Face. It was a magnificent movie with magnificent actors and a magnificent storyline and message. To this day it is on my top comfort movies list. There is something about Audrey Hepburn that makes me happy.


I love the study of other cultures. I love to know why people are the way they are and do what they do. I love learning about how their view of beauty, of knowledge, what their values are. Why some places are developed and other aren't. I love learning about how other people live.


I love the store Anthropologie. It is, to me, like fresh air off a mountain top; like seeing your one true love for the first time. You walk in to a store that is so uniquely decorated, that has a fresh, clean atmosphere, and then you see the clothing, the bedding, the kitchenware, the shoes and your heart drops. This store is not only a store. It is an art gallery. Then it whispers to you to, "look around,", "come experience anthropologie," and you do and you love it. Anthropologie has its downfall though. It makes you everything in the store and once you look at the price tag you realize you really are in a dream and that these beautiful things will have to stay in the store but it was a wonderful experience." Then you have to leave. How can you live without it? Well Good news, their website is beautiful and creative too. Just like the store.


Ovaltine is a delicious chocolate milk mix. Mmmm is it delicious. I could drink Ovaltine all day everyday. There is something about it that is just soo good. When you mix in just the right amount in with your full glass of milk and it turns that rich chocolaty color it makes your mouth water. Some of you may recognize Ovaltine from the popular Christmas Movie, The Christmas Story. In this movie Ralph wants to unlock the secret of Little Orphan Annie so Ovaltine sends him a decoder that reveals the message, "Be sure to Drink your Ovaltine." Ha Ha So funny. Anyway, I love Ovaltine... More ovaltine please!
