There comes a time in a woman's life when the daring swagger of youth
is replaced by a confident stride of elegance
that gently slows down to a quiet grace.
During the peak but fleeting season of outer beauty
when youth is stylishly rushing to win the race against time and gravity
the wisest thing to do is to is to take off the pressure to stay young forever, and glide into a more comfortable pair of shoes
that will help you step into the next phase of life with dignity and peace.
When I look at the years that have passed us by
my only remedy to combat the inevitable, is to say, "The Best Face Lift is a Smile"
and to celebrate these last 28 years of an extraordinary life together.
