Y is for (Say) Yes!: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Happy Sunday y'all! (Hmm. I've never typed 'y'all' before. Not sure I successfully pull it off.) So, it's the penultimate week of my A-Z of a vintage girl in a modern world, and I wanted to take some time to talk about being positive and saying 'Yes!' to things, even when they're terrifying.

G is for Golly, Gosh: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World

To do that, I need votes, by which I mean likes on my Facebook entry. If you have a… Continue reading G is for Golly, Gosh: the A-Z of a Vintage Girl in a Modern World
