Celebrations, Vacations, and Cake!

As the phrase goes, LET THEM EAT CAKE!  This weekend is a time for me to celebrate,,,,

On Friday, I officially begin my 7th year as a blogger and I hope it will be the best yet!  over50feeling40 was born on July 1, 2010.

On Friday, I officially begin the third month of my career reinvention with the local publishing company.  I love it and it keeps me really, really busy as I scramble to do both!  

Remember, don't let anything hold you back from pursuing your dreams...especially not age! 

So, in honor of both big accomplishments, I have decided to take a few days of vacation.  Jennifer is traveling around the West Coast in search of camping spaces and WIFI, so both of us will vacation from our collaborations this weekend...and return rested and ready for fun next week!

Make sure you follow me on Instagram and Pinterest...buttons in the right hand column...and next Tuesday join me for the weekly column for Midlife Boulevard. The week after promises new looks and new information just for you, the amazing women over fifty.

How will you celebrate this weekend?  Cake?  Sun? Family?

See You July 5, Keep Smiling!

  1. Congratulations on your blogging anniversary! I am taking some time off work to enjoy a long weekend, and those cakes look so good that I think I'll have to bake one to work into the weekend! Probably will be cooking out and relaxing in the sun! And a cake - definitely!

  2. Have a wonderful, well-earned vacation!

  3. Congratulations on the anniversaries.

  4. Congrats on 7 years!!! Wow! Enjoy your vacation!


  5. Congrats, Pam and enjoy your celebration(s)! xox


  6. Happy Blog Birthday. Love the cake photo. BTW, Marie Antoinette never said that phrase, that was one of many terrible myths about that lady. Hope you have a nice vacation! xx

  7. Thanks for the education, Jill...I edited the post because of your information! Thanks!

  8. Congratulations and very best wishes Pam. Seven years is a huge accomplishment!!!

  9. Happy Blogaversary Pam! Your inspiration and wisdom helps so many of us. Happy 4th!! Such a beautiful bake shop too.

  10. Congratulations. You make me feel ashamed. I should really leave the company I am working at now. It is a sick environment. But I love money too much and I am scared I will never find another job at my age (62). But you did it. I admire you fir that.


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
