I was born in the wrong era.

I think I would excel in, like, the 50’s.

I went to a Leon Bridges concert this weekend. *SwOoN* That old-timey, doo-woppie music speaks to a part of my soul that is buried deep beneath a love of indie folk & Kelly Clarkson.

I want to go to a sock hop in a hot pink poodle skirt with lil bobby socks and saddle oxfords on. Afterwards, I want to hit up the local soda shop & sip on a root beer float. I would like Garrett to wear a little letterman cardigan & ask me to go steady by giving me his class ring. He would also drive a red ’57 Chevy and we’d go to the drive-in and he’d try to put his arm around me during the flick. *Gasp*
