an ode to audrey

 

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

audrey hepburn

on the last thursday of january my mom & i spent the day in amsterdam. i had my eye on an exposition about audrey hepburn i wanted to go to in the beurs van berlage and so we went together! it was called ‘intimate audrey’. it was as if we were flipping though family photo albums of audrey hepburn. i cannot describe how much that woman inspires me. because of who she was, so classy and so pure. she just understood. i wish i could have met her once, but this exposition felt like a meeting in a different way.

her gracefulness, the way she held herself. how she looked at the world and at the possibilities she could bring. she inspires me more than i can say.

we then (of course) bought a dvd set with a few of audrey’s movies, which we’ll probably all watch very soon!

the remains of the day we spent shopping in the 9 straatjes. we had lunch at pluk amsterdam and ate dinner at the food hallen. it was so much fun to be out and about with my mom. i definitely want to make more little trips like this this year!

 
love,
eva
