Happy Birthday Daahling Audrey!!


Today would have marked Audrey's 81st Birthday! Audrey Hepburn was born in Belgium on May 4, 1929. This amazing, beautiful woman went on to become an Oscar, Tony, Grammy and Emmy award winning actress, starring in more than 25 films, including the classic and priceless gem that is my all time favorite Audrey movie: Breakfast at Tiffanys, before passing away in 1993. Her spirit lives on through her life’s work with UNICEF. Thank you for all the wonderful memories you have left us with, for being an inspiration to many of us, and for being the lovely YOU! you are forever fondly remembered!

In celebration of Audrey's birthday, I leave you with some of my absolute favorite pictures of her, as well as some rare photographs of her which I was delighted to find here!





"I was born with an enormous need for affection and a terrible need to give it. That’s what I’d like to think maybe has been the appeal. People have recognized something in me they have themselves – the need to receive affection and the need to give it." -Audrey Hepburn
