Although I hadn't been born in the sixties, I had to hour this decade since there's so many things I've always adored about this time period. [Showing my age..I just missed being born in this decade by a few years, I was born in 1971 so my parents had been dating, just hadn't thought of kids yet during that time period].


I'm not going to spotlight the decade as a whole, since I hadn't been born during the time. But I will spotlight some of my favorites things..From which I still enjoy everyday!
