Golden Age

Lately I have been enthralled with movies from the 1930's, 40's, and 50's. I also re-read the "Children of the Promise" series. (A series of historical fiction novels set during WWII.) There is so much we can learn from the women of those time periods. Women were feminine yet strong, willing to do what it took to keep their homes and families going. They often had to make sacrifices (sacrifices I doubt most of us can even fathom!), but they had a vision of a greater purpose than themselves. They relied on each other. They didn't have the luxuries that we take for granted today, but life was good. They took joy in little things. The movies were silly and fun and a great escape from the trials they dealt with day-t0-day. And they loved red lipstick. :) On Sunday I tried to go with a "look" from those times. Red lipstick, pearls, ruffles, and rolled hair. I want to be like the women from those days.

Ooooh la la! It's a good look for you. Rach and I collect movies from this era, so if you're ever in town, we'll pop some popcorn and watch a great flick!

You are so cute. I forgot about that series of books, but I totally want to read them. I'll have to ask my mom if she has them.

Woo-woo! You make a perfect 40's gal. I think that's so fun you've been on an old movies kick, maybe we can watch one of your favorites together when we're there in April!
