Ms. Go-Go, Gandalf & Sanity

Hard to believe we've reached the end of January already! This month has been a very busy month for me. I've worked hard to take on a more minimalistic lifestyle and mindset and feel much calmer than I did a few months ago. Because a few months ago, I felt anything but calm. Now, brace … Continue reading Ms. Go-Go, Gandalf & Sanity

So This Is It

So this is it. My 50s. Day 1. Now, I don't want to jinx it, but I have to say - so far, so good. I'm weirdly excited about this decade. My 30s were great, my 40s awesome. I can't wait to see what the 50s bring. To celebrate, I decided to take the day … Continue reading So This Is It

I have a pretty good idea of what my style is, but my current wardrobe isn't quite matching up with … Continue reading Stripping Down

Putting It Down on Paper

I find I work best when I track things. Not just the things that need to be done, but also the tasks that have been completed. Or haven't been, as sometimes is the case.

The Road Ahead

Here we are ~ January, 2017. This isn't just any other new year for me either. In a few short weeks I hit the big 5-0 (when did that happen??). The sudden realization that I'm entering the second half of my life puts an odd urgency to things that wasn't there before. I want to get things done, things I've … Continue reading The Road Ahead
