(1) People who grew up in my hometown, which was not rural, though the outlying towns were, really like wax nostalgic about dirt roads and growing up by woods and fields and streams that were miles from the homes where they grew up. WHAT ARE YOU EVEN TALKING ABOUT?!

(2) A good strapless bra is very important. A facebook friend was recently in a wedding and the bridesmaid dresses were strapless chiffon... oof. That is an unforgiving fabric if the bra isn't supportive.
