Get the 3 Things I've Been Loving, Trying, Eating and Reading: Books, Gadgets, Hacks & More

 Here's What You Will Get: 

Every Thursday, I send out an exclusive email with the three coolest things I’ve found (or explored) that week.  It could include exclusive giveaways or chances to interact with me, books, gadgets, albums, articles, new hacks/tricks, and — of course — all sorts of weird stuff I dig up through exploring my new universe here in Montana.  

All designed to help you feel happier and healthier over 50!

It might include tips on books, TedX talks, gadgets, albums, articles, new hacks/tricks, and — of course — my personal interest in health & wellness to keep you looking and feeling your best into our sixties and beyond.  Because of my healthcare background, I only recommend 

scientifically-proven interventions, such as a Whole-Food, Plant Based (WFPB) Diet and cosmetic procedures that I have checked out for myself.

I’m a tad bit crazy, so expect some laughter mixed in with all that other cool stuff.

These “3-Bullet Thursday” emails are only available if you subscribe to my e-mail newsletter. 


Healthy Diet


At birth, I weighed a whopping 10 lbs., 3 oz. (Sorry, mom. Poor thing was only 5'3") and my brother and I both topped ten pounds.  

Anyway, I've been weight-obsessed ever since.  Until now.  No points, scales 

or pre-packaged foods.  

My journey likely includes every diet 

that has ever been.  In a need to simplify, 

I stopped focusing on weight and 

started to focus on my health.  

I committed to a Whole-Food, 

Plant Based Diet (WFPB) over 

ten years ago. It takes effort to be committed to healthy eating, but it's well worth it.

Keep Moving


Find some way to keep moving -- 


No excuses -- move past that now to accountability.  Once you stop moving you die, so find some way to embrace movement and run with it.   For your health. 

Find something, anything that works 

with your body and your schedule.

Make a commitment to self-care 

for both body and mind.

Get out there and do it!!  

Every single day.  No matter what. 

If All Else Fails....


After selling professional skincare to dermatologists and plastic surgeons, 

my ex-husband and I opened a medi-spa offering laser hair removal, Botox, permanent makeup and other minimally-invasive procedures.  

This experience enables me to offer insight into the many cosmetic options available today.  

So, yea.  I get discounts on treatments but I promise to share the inside scoop!  In fact, I show before and after photos, tell you whether it hurts and how much I (hopefully!) love the results.

About the Blog

   This blog has been a long-time coming; I first started building it in October of 2016.  I remember the time frame distinctly; it was right after I was thrown from a horse and suffered a fractured pelvis.

I spent most of October, November and December of 2016 on my butt.  With extra time on my hands, I noticed that houses were selling well in our neighborhood.  Fast and often well over asking price..  

After my recovery, we quickly listed our home and in February of 2017, we began moving -- 

first into several Airbnbs and VRBO’s to kill some time until we could take possession of our new home in Evergreen, Colorado.  Our new home was only 11 miles away 

but we couldn’t move in for several months.


That June we finally settled into our new home in Evergreen, Colorado -- at a more reasonable 8,000’ altitude.  Or so I thought....

But, the Universe had another plan.   


Only two months after settling in, my husband Dave was offered a new and exciting role.  

In F-L-O-R-I-D-A, a world apart from where we came -- and a mere 2,000 miles away.

So we packed up again, and moved from the mountains to a fabulous beach town on the Gulf Coast 

of Florida.  We lived in beautiful Sarasota, Florida, for about two years, right near Siesta Key Beach, a known Center of Healing Energy. Coincidentally enough, I had some healing to do.  [Learn more about the natural healing properties of Siesta Key's sand here.]

I quickly turned the Evergreen home into a successful Airbnb and I started a blog.  And we moved 

and moved and moved again. Our final destination was Livingston, Montana in September of 2019, where we hope to stay forever -- with frequent visits back to Sarasota and Siesta Key.

 My journey includes focus on a higher level of health and wellness, both physical and mental.  I write about easy ways to incorporate healthier habits into your daily life and ways to increase your happiness - to find balance and perspective.My hope is that you leave this site with either a newly learned skill, an idea, or a feeling of confidence or encouragement.

About Me


I’m originally from Connecticut but I moved to Boulder, Colorado when I was 18.  Dave and I have been married for 15 years, and we’re the proud grandparents of Kailani, who is the daughter of Dave's son, Chris from a previous marriage.  My fur babies are Winnie and Wilbur.

I did the whole big career thing, I was in healthcare sales and marketing for 35 years.  I had some fun jobs too - I used to sell cosmetic skincare to Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons.  I also worked in the movie theatre industry and traveled extensively.  I loved it - until I no longer did.

After a series of soul-sucking jobs, I knew something had to change.  If I was ever going to enjoy my life, I had to get out of corporate America and do something on my own.  

I was overwhelmed and exhausted.

So while recovering from an injury, I ventured out online and wound up starting a blog.

My #1 goal with this blog is to help people feel empowered to change their lives for the better.  

I intend to share things that inspire, that encourage, and that make life better 

without making it more complicated. 

I love hearing from readers, so feel free to contact me at any time to let me know your thoughts, to share any tips of your own, or to let me know what parts of your life you’d like to work on.
