American Pie

A long, long time ago…  There is something about the 50’s that seemed so idyllic.  Growing up, I was so fascinated by what I thought the 50’s represented.  Every mother a June. Every father a Ward.  I remember longing for the milk and cookies scenario after school.  I know that the time was far from perfect, but it seemed so innocent.

But February made me shiver.  And we were singing…

Bye, Bye Miss American Pie

50's Buddy Holly

 Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly. 

Side Note: American Pie was number one on the music charts the week I was born.  It’s such a song rife with meaning and just one of the coolest songs of all time.

  9. These are just too adorable!!! I agree & we discuss it often now different life is now. Not just with how the technology has changed or lifestyle but more in how people behave or lack thereof these days. Sure is different.

  19. Wonderful shots Kim, my favorite is the last one! How ever did you get your older son to model for you (bribing my son makes him impatient…) A huge congrats on Gracyn getting in! (I read from bottom up when I’ve been away ;)…

  20. I would definitely not want to live in the 50s. Too clean, too strict, too… you name it. But I like the song and I love your photos. They are awesome! How did you get him to dress up and pose like that? Maybe cookies 😀
