Her Sunny, Funny Face

I’m reposting what I had written last year in honor of Audrey’s Birthday ~ Bon Anniversaire, darling! Ching, ching, my Huckleberry Friend!

The world sparkled and shined the day the beautiful, incomparable Audrey Hepburn was born. Her generous and philanthropic spirit was an inspiration, and made her even lovelier in life than she was in her films. Not only did she have style in spades but she was a perfect lady and exceptional human being. She carried herself with poise and grace, and treated others with kindness and respect.

So “clink!” to the Birthday Girl and her memorable silver screen personas – Holly, Sabrina, Princess Ann, Jo, Joanna, Eliza, Regina, Gaby – and all the other fabulous characters she brought to life.
