On this day in 1969 we lost the iconic, Judy Garland. But, before that day she amassed a body of work astounding in its range, amazing in its power, and timeless in its ability to exult, enthrall, and excite cross-generational audiences.

Today we celebrate Judy’s life and everything she brought into our lives. It’s not a day to be sad. It’s a day to honor her amazing existence and thank her for memories.

No tears today.

Let June 22nd be the day in which we’re happy because she lived.

Day twenty one ::: The beauty
“My mother had the most incredible skin I’ve ever seen; it was like delicate porcelain, so fine and translucent you could see the veins if you looked closely enough. I used to sit on her dressing table when I was six or seven and watch her put on her makeup. I would stare at her while she put on her lipstick, leaning in real close so I could see, and she’d try not to laugh at me because she didn’t want to smear. She had tiny little feet that were wide from dancing all those years; great legs, and the most wonderfully expressive hands. My mother was just so beautiful. She was a movie star.”
Lorna Luft

Day nineteen ::: The best advice ever given
"My mother said to me: ‘You’ll never have to sing my songs. You just tell people, and remember this too: You want to be the first rate version of yourself instead of the second rate version of somebody else.’” - Liza Minnelli

Day seventeen ::: Judy, the racounter

"Nobody ever says how intelligent she was, or how witty. Stories about her are frozen in a pattern, as if she had no life after ‘Over The Rainbow’. She was the best racounter, the funniest woman I’ve ever seen." - George Cukor

"She did a great thing, I must say. She rewrote things. We could go through something horrendous, then the next day she’d be telling somebody what we went through, and it was hilarious. She’d infuse it with humor and slowly but truly you’d remember it that way and not the way it really was." - Liza Minnelli

Day sixteen ::: The Concerts
"A really great reception makes me feel like I have a great big warm heating pad all over me. People en masse have always been wonderful to me. I truly have a great love for an audience, and I used to want to prove it to them by giving them blood. But I have a funny new thing now, a real determination to make people enjoy the show. I want to give them two hours of just pow."

Day fifteen ::: Meet Me In St. Louis
It’s impossible not to fall in love with the Smith family in this MGM classic.
Full of unforgettable songs, Meet Me In St. Louis is one of the most beloved musicals of all time.
And even though Judy didn’t want to be a part of it in the beginning - she was tired of playing teenage girls - she is the light of the movie. 
She looks particularly beautiful as Esther Smith and the way Vincente Minnelli uses a window, people, and curtains to frame her face in the most memorable scenes is moving and a clear indicator that he was already in love with her.
