Happy 97th Birthday Ilona Royce Smithkin

Anyone who has the privilege to spend time with Ilona Royce Smithkin, has had the rare opportunity to witness a true artist. Someone so full of life, authenticity, brilliance, and artfulness that each moment with her makes you want to live a little more thoughtfully, generously, and colorfully. With one word, or bat of a magical lash, Ilona can put the most seemingly difficult situations into perspective. I am incredibly lucky to know and call Ilona one of my dearest friends. She has changed my life in innumerable ways and I want to wish  her nothing but the utmost joy and peace on her 97th Birthday. Ilona, thanks so much for accepting me into your life and helping to inspire the lives of so many! We love you Ilona!!!
