Just over the 50 year mark, a wife of 31 years, a mother of two, & Mimi to one. Decided it was time to begin taking care of myself and began a new journey to a healthier me! This is my personal blog of my life and how being 50 is really going to be Fabulous!
It’s November and for my husband and I, it’s our anniversary month! We will be celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary. That’s quite an achievement and something we are very proud of. Thru the years we have seen every facet of life, the good, the bad, the heartbreaking and the […]
