This is the best time of life…time to have some fun. I am so glad to discover that I am not the only woman in my fifties who feels this way. I have met some exciting women on the blogs and running businesses (Like Marilyn from this POST), but I also have found they are all around me, in my own city.
Saturday night, I went to a friend’s baby shower and all of the women there in between 50-80 were so vibrant and youthful. There was great fashion ….mostly tunics with leggings along with joking and memories. One great grandma at age 73 donned the cutest outfit of the evening with her leggings and precious hair bow. She was amazing! One established and runs her own business and another is principal of an elementary school. They were intelligent, invigorating, and joyful.

These were women I could easily engage in a serious snowball fight!! Maybe the years are ticking by, but I do not feel it and I see the same twinkle in the eyes of many women around me. When the fashion world tells us that it is not appropriate to wear leggings or colored denim, I say wear if you want. It looks great on women no matter the age. I am happy to wear my red denim today, and I just ordered some emerald green from Talbot’s…looking forward to receiving that pair soon.

So, enjoy your week…no matter the struggles, we can still find reasons to laugh.
