Peace, Love, Beatles

I’m a firm believer that you’re never too old to dress up. In fact, it may be the secret to staying young.

To celebrate my Aunt’s 50th birthday, we all donned our best hippie gear for the Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles concert. By chance, we sort of embodied all types of hippies. Littlest Sister was the sweet, innocent flower child, Aunt Gina was the psychedelic groovy hippie, I was the passionate activist, and Mom was the feminist hippie ring leader. I still can’t look at this photo without laughing.

In typical 13-year-old-fashion, littlest sister was quite embarrassed to get out of the car with us at the concert. After all, we were the only ones dressed like true hippies, but once she saw how much everyone loved the costumes she warmed up to the idea.

I’m convinced our costumes made the experience a thousand times more fun; we sang, danced, and waved our peace signs in the air. It was like taking a trip back in time. I had the best time watching my mom and aunt really get into it. Priceless.

So happy to share this special memory with them. Peace, Love, Beatles.

    Wow…awesome. I love the Beatles…all time classics. Thanks for sharing…I hate to admit it but this is my era. Go mom and congratulations to your aunt. I love the attitude and as you guys saw it was a bit awkward at first but you had a much better time. To quote a passage from times past: Let it all hang out. 🙂
