Swinging in Springfield!
I love porches and I love swings. I don't own either. When planning our road trip, I hoped that at least one of our 22 nights would involve a porch. When I learned that our B & B in Springfield, Missouri had a porch and a swing, I made sure to pack the fixings and announced my plan. "I'm going to have lemonade on that porch!"
That seemed like a perfect way to celebrate the simpler times of the 1950's! By time we reached Springfield, the weather turned chilly and damp, but that didn't stop me. I had a cup of pink lemonade and thought about that house. We didn't realize it when initially researching B&Bs in Springfield, but found out that my Great Great Uncle Harry Jewell once lived in this house!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
