‘The Happiest girls are the prettiest’

-Audrey Hepburn-

For as long as I can remember, I always perceived Audrey Hepburn as the greatest example of beauty . Inside and out, Audrey seemed to carry an air of grace, humility and sweetness about her which translated so strongly, through her pictures, movies and memoirs. You simply have to google ‘Audrey Hepburn quotes’ to appreciate the kindness, the gentleness and the unique character of this beautiful lady.

For myself, I also long to be Audrey. Not so much, to be a glamorous lady or to be a petite hollywood beauty. But to be the kind soul that she was, a woman who believed in herself and those around her.  To share the same heart of selflessness and to share her love of true beauty. I found out the other day that Audrey actually lived in a small town in Switzerland which is today her resting place on this earth. Adorned by nothing more than a simply headstone, Audrey Hepburn’s grave does not indicate grandeur or wealth. Rather I like to think that it perhaps  indicates a simplicity of a beautiful human, that, like you and me has the potential to see and be the beauty of this wonderful world.

Taken in the Rhodedendron Gardens of Dandenongs, these pictures represent natural beauty. The natural beauty of darling Vess and the natural beauty seen in God’s beauty creation.  We all the potential to bring beauty into this world and to bring light, goodness and kindness. We have some exciting features coming up for the rest of this month and some potential changes to Big Picture Stuff! Stay tuned
