Without a doubt, I am a sucker for romance; last of a dying breed, I suspect. This stunning layout, styled by Vogue's Grace Coddington and photographed by Annie Leibovitz, is from the February (2010) issue of VOGUE, featuring what appears to be a romantic, clandestine interlude between P. Diddy and model, Natalia Vodianova. It evokes a time when men wore suits to the office, as well as, to dinner; when women dressed for day and evening, and, equally importantly, the men/lovers in their lives. A period in time when ladies wore pencil skirts with slips, jackets with brooches, high heels and pantyhose with seams that directed a gentleman's sly gaze to regions where most could only dream to venture. This beautiful tableaux, with the train, also in a starring role, could very well have taken place today or in 1930's Paris. Timeless!

I was born in the country, but brought up in the big city, with hopes of always maintaining the charm, wit and character of a southern, sophisticated
gentleman. In my goal to live more passionately & purposefully, here are just a few things that I've learned and experienced along the way, making my journey more interesting, and more importantly, easier.
