Our love affair with polka dots began before our first daughter was born. We cannot resist polka dots that are accentuated with bows. We picked out quite a few red-and-white polka dot outfits (along with pink colored ones). Red and white are always the girls’ Grandma Sally’s favorite colors. It also reminds us of the era that Dian loves the most: the 40’s – 50’s, though America’s love affair with polka dots began in late 20’s and 30’s.
