Miss Teenage Maryland c. 1967

I was digging through a box of memories last night to show Boo something and found an old favorite….that’s my mom c. 1967.  Ronald Reagan would have been Governor of California I think.

A few things I love about this photo:

1. My mom and her amazing dress.
2. Ronald Reagan looks so tall!
3. The “superman” telephone booth in the background.

Fact: Did you know that President Reagan designated Martin Luther King Day a national holiday?
Fact: President Reagan was a devoted diary keeper!  In his 8 years as President he wrote in his diary EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. That’s what inspired me to start my 5 year journal!

    Oops, just realised that I can leave a comment down here without Facebook. I used my page above because my profile picture shows my hair.
    Why do you keep such a treasure in a box? You absolutely need to frame it! You mum is beautiful, and her dress is fantastic! I really need to start keeping a diary!

    So. Incredibly. Awesome. And Boo looks just like your Mom. And that dress is absolute perfection. Maybe it will inspire a future a Lil’ Blue Boo line!
