A saint I can relate to...
I put this on my sidebar but it's too small to see any detail. I'm posting it here in case, like me, you want to get a closer look. This came from Leonie's blog, which says it is St. Margaret of Scotland. Unfortunately I have no idea what the original source might be. In any case, other than the crown (and halo!) it looks like we have a lot in common!
St. Margaret was an English princess who fled England, married the Scottish king Malcolm, and raised 6 sons and 2 daughters while inspiring her people with her virtue and generosity. Read a brief biography here.
Edited to add: I'm really not trying to compare myself to a saint, ha! Just saying it's nice to see one looking so domestic!
