Magnificent Marilyn

Standard

This is my favorite Marilyn Monroe quote and I love that it makes so much sense:

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

I love all things Marilyn Monroe. The two links below show most of the pictures taken by Bert Stern from the “last photo shoot.”

About lucygracesmom

I am a mom of one 8 year old and stepmother to three wonderful adults; ages 19, 21 and 23. The youngest child is in Third grade at Maxwell, a Spanish Immersion school in Lexington, KY. She enjoys playing violin and everything scientific. Mary Stewart is to take her medical boards in May of this year and is beginning year 3 of medical school at Case Western in Cleveland; Charles Morgan will begin his final year at College of Charleston in the Fall, but currently is studying abroad in Sussex, England; Betsy is living the college dream at Ole Miss in Oxford studying Business and the most fun ways to party. We are very blessed in the family department. My husband is a lawyer specializing in Intellectual Property, computer and entertainment law. We are in the sixth year since starting our own business, Montague Law PLLC. I have the title Operational Manager which means the administrative end of the business (yuk). We live in Lexington, KY or as many know it – horse country. Everything around here is horse and it is a very beautiful area to live in and to raise a family. I have a great many interests that span art, sciences, education, books, film and my greatest passion is design. One of my favorite blogs is Grace Bonney’s Design Sponge. I like living the simple life, spending time with my family, reading and writing about my interests in this blog. One of my hopes in developing this blog is to share with you the many things I enjoy so that you may enjoy them too. I love sharing cool information with people who appreciate it. I like pinning on Pinterest, keeping track of my high school friends, college friends and family on Facebook and don’t tell anyone, but I sometimes re-shelve books at the library because I enjoy it.
