    Growing Up In the 50's

    I loved the 1950's. I think it really solidified in me that I was a girl. I thought the ladies fashions were simply wonderful. Even then I dreamed of being a bride and the wedding dresses were absolutely lovely. Seeing Mom's friends and cousins getting married, I couldn't take my...
