Oh me. Do young girls keep paper diaries today? It was a different world in 1955–square dancing, liking cafeteria food, caroling–but I bet the emotions are close, even today, 60 years later.
P.S. This was in September and he gave me a box of candy for Christmas.

If I had a paper diary it would have read a lot like yours. Ah the memories you called up with that blog. 😉
