As it is Thanksgiving, I wanted to share with you this incredible story from someone who escaped from the recent terror in Mumbai (http://cricketfamily.blogspot.com/2008/11/email-from-mumbai.html). I will let him tell, in his own words, that we have so much to be thankful for.
With love,
Sara

MJ -- have banished any more thoughts of snow and any references to it in this post :)

Jeanne -- such a lovely and inspirational quote!

Carla -- was thinking the same thing -- pre-dawn Parisian light . . .

Sara -- thanks for the inspirational story -- we really do have much to be thankful for

As always, thanks so much for taking the time to stop in for a visit -- hope everyone is having a wonderful time with friends and family.

That top dress is stunning! I love your blog - you always have photos that have not been posted anywhere else on the internet (or at least it seems that way) that are elegant and classy.

Thank you for providing daily inspiration and enjoyment :)

I love the top picture. It looks like she could be a ballerina in a beautiful tutu. This harps back to my dancing skills. I am officially in love.....

I'm a dope. I didn't see that the Hermes ad was from 2006. Still it's so nice to see Gemma Ward in something beautiful. :)

Not at all Grenadine - it was easy to miss, and completely agree - it is lovely to see Gemma in such a beautiful campaign.

Hope you had a fantastic weekend,
