These photos were stamped “Dec 62,” but the prom was actually back in the spring of that year. The first one was taken from just inside our front door. I always loved that piece of furniture behind me. We called it a “secretary,” because there was (is) a desk section right behind me on the right side of it. Nan has this piece, the little stinker.
Here is a 180 shot, next to the fire place that contained a gas heater:
Date Johnny died a few years ago, but I did see him at some of the class reunions. He was a really nice guy.
Too bad these aren't in color because I can’t remember exactly what color the dress was. I’m thinking it was a mint green because I do sort of remember the orchid he gave me having a green bow on it. His mom was a florist, so she did an extra good job on the corsage for this special occasion.
How ‘bout those gloves?! I was definitely styling back in those days. Fond memories for sure. This is the little house I grew up in, back when it was all white, had more trees around it, as well as a big Camellia bush and flowers out front. My Mother could make a fence post sprout, and loved working in the yard. Me, not so much.
Ten years after that prom, I was a married lady with a baby. These have been the best years, thanks to my very special MM.
Life is precious, y’all. Enjoy it now…make some good memories.
