There's plenty of darkness in the world, which is why we need people who can find the light and the joy and reflect it back to all of us. Whether it's by creating a lovely dress, setting a gracious table or cultivating a verdant garden, the ability to make things beautiful is a gift that should never be taken for granted.
Life might not always be pretty, but I'm so grateful that we had Oscar de la Renta to remind us that it can be beautiful. He will be missed.
Happy Wednesday, everyone. I hope that someone brings a little beauty into your world today! XO
