To truly live well

My dream grandmother would have been Maxime de la Falaise (designer, bon vivant, and muse to Yves Saint Laurent and Andy Warhol), because when she headed to the great soirée in the sky this past April, I would have inherited all of this. And I'm sure she could have taught me a thing or two about living a kickass life.
