"It All Began With a Birthday."

Yep. That one.

After 50, I felt... a little empty. I felt...over. I mean, I knew intellectually that wasn’t true, but it’s still how I felt. I wanted it all to mean something. To feel fulfilled. To be in love with my life. And if I felt that way, I knew other women my age did too.

I wondered where I could still make a difference. If I could, whose life would I change? And then I had the answer...
And I hope that's your answer too...

Drinking herbal tea, walking in the forest or feeding the birds, journaling, messaging family, and a nightly hot bath! (Oh, and a reluctant workout!)

daily rituals

In my garden, watching HGTV with my hubby, reading, day dreaming and writing about things that matter.


Mean girls, the color brown, pickles, The Beatles (I know!) or giving up!


My grandkiddos, body positivity, that good food & wine makes everything better, kindness, and in people who do the right thing.


I've spent the years learning, growing, changing. I grew a "cute little blog" to a business that has made over a million dollars. I've gone from a shy girl afraid of the world to someone who wants to live an amazing life, with purpose.  I've done the research, read the books, taken the courses, built a thriving online business, and found my way.

I want to take what I’ve learned and share it with women over 50 want to grow into who they are meant to be. Who are yearning for more. Help you find the mindset and the tools that can help you learn to live an unforgettable life.

It's never too late to rewrite your future, reignite your heart or rebuild your dreams. We. Are. Not. Done.

"You're stronger than you think you are. But if you're anything like me, you need help to take your super power to the next level."

That's not selfish. You can’t give to others if you aren’t taking care of yourself, right? But I feel like it goes much deeper than that for women of our generation. We have to find a way to be amazing FOR ourselves, before we can be amazing for others. And that’s where we must start, girls. Becoming unapologetically ourselves. Maybe for the first time?
