I couldn’t sleep last night…thought about everything under the sun…including this blog. I’ve been wanting to update the About Me page so instead of sleeping, I took mental notes.
This is why I blog, which will also be my updated About Me page:
For the past 25 years, my life revolved around my family, especially my kids. I was a mom, first & foremost. Although not perfect, I loved every minute of being a mommy to my great kids…but they grew up. Darn you Father Time! Tick, tick, ticking away without regard or mercy…stopping for no one.
I started this blog on August 25th of this year in search of a fun hobby while begrudgingly accepting my future as an empty nester. What a great way to focus my attention away from the sadness and changes occurring within and around me?!
As it seems, my love for fashion has emerged as the main theme for this modest blog. Could it be due to the fact that I have no real talent to speak of? More than likely, yes. This is my feeble attempt, while kicking & screaming, NOT to fade into a mere existence, as I’m constantly reminded of my “over the hill” status. You know you’ve arrived when AARP & Long Term Care Insurance brochures frequent your mail box.
Seriously tho, our wardrobe doesn’t and shouldn’t define who or what we are, but I think of it as a small but an integral part of one’s self expression…good or bad…like it or not. You’ve heard the old adage, “you never get a second chance to make a first impression”… so true. I’m striving to grow old gracefully and with style! I’m shooting for the “most chic granny award” (not that I’m ready to be a granny yet). I’m not a fashionista ~ FAR from it. I just enjoy & appreciate lovely things…small & large, cheap & luxe…I’m a woman after all…can’t help it…it’s in my DNA!
As for my fashion spreads (haha), if you haven’t noticed, I’m very awkward & uncomfortable in front of the camera, but I’m really trying! I thank my poor hubby for being a good sport and being my supportive photog. You have no idea how hilarious and ridiculous we look in these photo sessions/blunders. It’s a hoot & I’m having a ball!
I hope you’ll forgive my shortcomings…have a few laughs…and along the way, should you find a few helpful ideas…all the better!
I thank you so much for taking the time to read and visiting my humble little corner of the internet.
