Wonder Town and Country.

I picked up the latest issue of Town and Country at the Market. It's focus is Wonder Women, and Cindy Crawford graces the cover. Inside there are some truly interesting stories of strong, creative, talented and resourceful women.
I read them all but am choosing to mention two of the women.

Fleur Cowles was a pioneer in publishing and a socialite and lived to be 101! Her life sounds fascinating.

Alexandra Penney a victim of Madoff,  has written The Bag Lady Papers....what a transition she has had to make in her life. She is an inspiration in her determination to regain some control of her life.
I will put the book on my list of must reads...that book list is getting longer as the days go many books so little time. (to read)

  1. My girlfriend just gave me a subscription to T&C for my bday and I just read those 2 articles last night. I agree, fascinating women!


  2. I love the stories of great women, they set the bar high and make us better ourselves, even something small and simple, being aware that we can choose to make a difference.
