Welcome Home Martha

Martha Stewart just left prison and she looks fabulous. As she boarded her private jet with her daughter, she wore cute jeans and a poncho and waved and smiled enthusiastically to the camera crews. She had a bounce in her step and truly looked amazing and much thinner than five months ago. Ms. Stewart just posted the following message on her website:

The experience of the last five months in Alderson, West Virginia has been life altering and life affirming. Someday, I hope to have the chance to talk more about all that has happened, the extraordinary people I have met here and all that I have learned. I can tell you now that I feel very fortunate to have had a family that nurtured me, the advantage of an excellent education, and the opportunity to pursue the American dream. You can be sure that I will never forget the friends that I met here, all that they have done to help me over these five months, their children, and the stories they have told me.

Right now, as you can imagine, I am thrilled to be returning to my more familiar life. My heart is filled with joy at the prospect of the warm embraces of my family, friends and colleagues. Certainly, there is no place like home.
