VIP – Very Important Panache April 04 2014

What is perfection really? Is it a measurement? A dollar amount? A certain color or picture of health? Personally, I think perfection is in the details. Some of my favorite things about life do not involve money, in fact, it’s mostly a feeling that brings about the memories of the crème de la crème of my youth – this is my idea of perfection.
