Second Acts & Self-Reinvention

Way back in January, when threats of the 'new Coronavirus' barely registered for most of us, Leanne Le Cras asked me to write a guest post for her blog.

Would You Rather…?

Thank you to author and blogger, Jill Weatherholt, for inviting me to play ‘Would You Rather.’ I encourage you to visit her site to check out not only my answers but the answers of other bloggers as well (some had me laughing for quite a while)!

Today, I’m excited to welcome fellow blogger, Donna Connolly. Many of you know her, but if you haven’t checked out her blog, I encourage you to do so.

Leanne from Cresting the Hill : ‘If We Were Having Coffee’

Donna has been kind enough to invite me to Guest Host for her again. I'm not officially a retired blogger, nor a travel blogger, so I can't fairly discuss either subject. Instead, I thought I’d try a different version of my 'If we were having coffee' post and provide a bit of an overview of… Continue reading Leanne from Cresting the Hill : ‘If We Were Having Coffee’

Torrid Romantic and Sensual Escapades: A Retirement Primer
