Betty Draper on Valentine’s Day
     ↳ Mad Men 2.01, For Those Who Think Young

So, on my 4th re-watch of Mad Men, I am up to Season 2 Episode 1, For Those Who Think Young. Another great episode leading into a great season. Betty looks stunning in the hotel scene. It’s refreshing to see a thin Peggy again as well - I don’t think they did a very good job on her fat suit in the previous season. I’ve always wondered why they jump ahead over a year in time, yet they talk about Peggy losing the weight as if it just happened. That’s odd to me. I also love how invested everyone was in the President and Mrs. Kennedy back then. My how times have changed!

All I know about getting something that you want is that there are three essential things: wanting, trying and getting the opportunity, the breaks. None works alone without the others. Wanting is basic. Trying is up to you. And the breaks - I do know this, they always happen.

Happy birthday Eileen Evelyn Greer Garson!

Here are some of the most classic Hollywood beauties who aged very gracefully. I hope I look half that good when I get to be their age. Here’s to aging with grace rather than trying to hold on to your youth with plastic surgery and other things. <3 They are all still beautiful to me!
