Taking Christmas road trip with my oldest sister.
Our "era" before our family split up etc. We refer to 70s as the last awesome decade of our lives.
We are driving together to visit family and it's not an easy/fun visit, but very necessary as they are getting older. Want to put some issues to rest while we still can. Let these grudges go that our families have carried WAY TOO LONG.

I want to surprise my sister with all the best 70s music so at least the drive is awesome and it takes some of anxiety away!!! Found some Loves Baby Soft and Lip Smackers Lip Gloss to add to the fun~~

Thanks!!!! Excited to hear what you come up with. Adding them all!!

By 70s, do you mean the 68-72ish era, or what followed, musically?
