Flash back 1970’s…..
It was our usual Sunday afternoon drive with the fam. Dad driving, mom sitting in the front passenger seat talking about a new roller technique she used for styling her friend, Vera’s, hair. Us kids were smooshed into the backseat of dad’s new German luxury car and tunes of Waylon Jennings resonated through the small holes on the back deck. “Looking for love in all the wrong places, looking for love in too many faces….” and on, and on. Torture at best. Two busy little brothers. Second hand smoke. Country Music. I cracked my window for fresh air – breathe. Give me some Boston, Elton John, Olivia Newton-John….but please, NOT another country song. So I sat and watched the scenery pass by outside the car window. Sucking in fresh air as much as my lungs would allow. Looking for….looking for….oh, I don’t know, a way to escape the torture of having to be stuck in the car with rambunctious brothers and Waylon Jennings.
Flash forward to today! Waylon isn’t playing today, but I did find some fun stuff for Valentine’s Day on etsy!! Looking for love in all the right places. Etsy isn’t match.com, but it sure is a fun place to find something cute and charming!
