Hello and Happy Birthday, Marilyn!

Hello, everyone!

Boy, it has been a very long time since I have penned something on the blog. Taking a 17 credit semester, volunteering, playing and coaching volleyball really added up, so I had to take some time off to really focus on my schoolwork. Now that school is over and my grades are right where I want them to be, I am very excited to be up and running again! Bring on warm weather and lemonade!

I am going to keep this post short today by just saying happy birthday to the beautiful Marilyn Monroe. She would have been 90 years old today. Even though she is not here to celebrate it, her spirit is alive as ever and so is her image. I have always admired Marilyn's strength throughout her difficult life, and she taught me to accept myself for who I am and to flaunt the gifts that I have been given. What an inspiring woman she was!

Here are two of my favorite pictures of Marilyn:

Though taken in two very different settings, both photographs show a very happy looking and at ease Marilyn. I find that she was the most beautiful when she was really, genuinely happy.

Once again, happy birthday Marilyn! I hope that everyone has been doing well. Have a wonderful beginning of June!
