I never really followed her and I wasn’t going to post any sort of reaction. But then my friend Kelly posted this marvelous quote and I couldn’t resist, I had to share it with you. Here goes:
I never planned to acquire a lot of jewels or a lot of husbands. For me, life happened, just as it does for anyone else. I have been supremely lucky in my life in that I have known great love, and of course I am the temporary custodian of some incredible and beautiful things.

Follow your passion, follow your heart, and the things you need will come.
