inspiration monday


sometimes all it takes is a song on the radio......
and before you know it you're a young girl again, wearing your favorite sundress and new sandals, freshly painted pink toenails, sitting in the back seat of the car with your brothers, long hair blowing all over the place because the windows are down, on your way to the A&W for a root beer float, and the entire family is singing this song at the top of their lungs.
inspiration is timeless.

What a great way to start the day, Lori! All those fun teenage memories!... Remember "hip huggers" and "bell bottoms" and tube tops (yikes, did I really wear those things?) and Heaven Scent, and Loves Baby Soft cologne...OMG, seems like yesterday, doesn't it?! I just LOVE this, and the memories you've stirred up too! xoxo Paulette

Great journal entry Lori! I was in the grocery store today thinking I am officially old, because I was rockin' out to the music they were piping in the frozen food section. :)
