The Blog

This is where we come together and talk about who we are. This is where our voices get loud and we become inspired and gain power from the stories we share. 

You will find stories about adventures, work, relationships, loss, relocating, health, style and celebrations. Subscribe to our monthly newsletter and join our community below to be sure you don’t miss a thing.

The Conversations column is where you will find interviews and portraits of women over 50, ordinary women that I am certain you will love and be moved by as much as I have.

Let’s be heard. Share generously!
