All Things French & The Sea~~Magic

"Above all I am first a woman." ~~Jacqueline Kennedy

Jackie died in May 1994, but remains one of the 'ne plus ultra.' She had incredible self-discipline, determination, believed in hard work and self-reliance. She loved exercise, the beach , good food and wine, books, children, flowers, animals and France. Her favorite city was Paris where she attended a year at the Sorbonne. Ironically, the last book she edited at Doubleday before she died was on the Goddess Isis, for whom Paris was named. Isis is the Goddess of total femininity and magic. And Jackie was all of that.
