    I’ve followed you, through email and YouTube, for a year now. I want to thank you for enhancing my life so much this year. I’ve gone grey, I’ve greatly improved my accessorizing, and I’m exercising more and eating better.

    Preppy style and Talbot’s have been a part of my life since I saved money from a high school job to buy a dress at Talbots. I not only wear and decorate with Ralph Lauren, but so do my children and grandchildren.

    Thank you so much.

    Handsome father! I can see you in his face and your personality in his laugh🥂

    We all wish wars would never happen, but reality is, they do. Freedom is never free and our military families pay the price. For all the simple pleasures that we enjoy, we should pay too – pay tribute, honour and appreciated. 🎁
