I’m Margie Abernethy, a 35-year veteran of healthcare sales and marketing gone 50s+ lifestyle blogger.  I grew up in Connecticut, but I moved to Colorado when I was 18 years old.  After nearly 40 years as a Coloradoan, we unexpectedly moved to Sarasota, Florida in late 2017.

Right after we moved into a new home in Evergreen, Colorado!!  What to do?  

We turned our new house in Evergreen into an Airbnb 

and moved from the mountains to a fabulous beach town on the Gulf Coast

 of Florida.  Siesta Key is a known Center of  Healing Energy, [learn more about the natural healing properties of Siesta Key's sand here.]   

As of September 2019, we now live in Livingston, Montana, 

but I still have sand in my RAV4.


We look to maintain a healthy lifestyle, so we try to make smart choices.  

One way we safeguard our health is through a Whole-Food, Plant Based (WFPB) Diet, which has been proven protective against such chronic and deadly diseases as diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

While I am not a physician, I can offer tremendous insight by 

cutting through the pseudo-science to help you understand 

what the big take-away means for us all by sharing my insight into what 

the studies document.  Again, I'm no physician -- so please be sure to check with your doctor before trying something new.

I am a wife to a handsome tech guru and a dog mom to Winnie and Wilbur, our fur babies.  And best of all, I am Nonni to Kailani, my beautiful granddaughter, thanks to Dave's son Chris from a prior marriage.  

Chris and baby-momma Cheyenne are both awesome and Kailani's a doll.

I love staying active, exploring, travel, animals and learning.  

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, simplifying your life in manageable steps, 

and ways to increase your happiness.

I write about my decision to completely overhaul my life – jumping off the corporate gerbil wheel and into two internet businesses, starting with an Airbnb and then a blog, while creating healthy habits and generally trying to simplify my life, re-prioritize and start over in my late fifties.
