You know that feeling you get while on vacation? That easy, delicious feeling of anticipation mixed with possibility and perhaps a fruity cocktail drank way before a respectable hour? I want that heady feeling in my everyday life…and I want that for you too.
Yes, we will probably have to make our own beds and if there is a mint on our pillow at night it is because we put it there, but why not give your everyday life all the little pleasures that make vacation time feel so special?
Midlife is a time of rediscovery. Your children are probably grown, your career is stable, or like me you’ve left it behind to start a new chapter. You now actually have time to focus on well, you. Let’s talk about what is important in our lives now, or what just feels like fun. For me, that’s traveling the world and the world right outside my door that I’ve been ignoring for far too long. It’s throwing dinner parties for friends where we eat delicious food, drink wine and just enjoy each other’s company. It’s tables for two at local restaurants or just at my kitchen table with the man who put me through Culinary school and should reap at least some of the benefit from that.
Let’s try new fashion trends and new beauty products ( even if the only person that sees them is the UPS guy). There is so many rules out there for “a woman of a certain age”, let’s discuss which are true and which are just an antiquated way of thinking.
I have a pretty good life and I’m grateful for all I have, but I sometimes find myself floundering in a sea of choices and then I end up choosing to sit on my butt…I want to change that. I want to attend to the details of my life in a more glamorous and entertaining way, and I want to know how you bring joy into your everyday activities as well, so please introduce yourself or just come along for the ride.
What I really want to talk about the little luxuries that take your life from good to great. So why not upgrade our lives together?
