Challenge: If you could live in any historical era, when would it be?
This was a no-brainier for me – the style, the excitement of being on the brink of change, and the seemingly innocent times of the late 1920’s-1950’s. Yes – this time period had its pitfalls – social injustices, war, financial crisis – all time periods do. But there is something about these years that intrigues me. I often wonder if I would have been brave enough to have been an agent of change back then. Would I stand up for women’s rights? For civil rights? Would I go to work in a factory a la Rosie the Riveter? Or grow a victory garden? My heart tells me yes – I certainly hope so.
By far, I love the way that people dressed! I blame Gatsby!
