The writer of this blog says she lives her life with very few secrets. She believed that blogging is all about a life lived in the open, just in a discrete way. All you really need to know is that she writes about retirement out there where the rubber meets the road. Any glimpse you get of her personal life is seen because it gives you a view of how a retired woman lives. That is what she wants you to know.
Her background as an educator prepared her for the huge amount of learning that was necessary to become a successful blogger. The learning curve satisfies her need for a creative outlet. Curiosity coupled with the research necessary to become knowledgeable about the subjects she find interesting is part of what keeps her coming back to write frequently.
She has been married for 56 years and shares her life with her husband, 3 grown-and-flown children and 12 grandchildren. She and her husband travel as much a possible and just recently returned from a trip to the central Mexico community of San Miguel de Allende. Next spring will find them in Dubai visiting with her son and his family.
As her life in retirement continues to evolve so does Retire In Style Blog. Where she once welcomed guest bloggers and native advertising she now spends her time on only those things that interest or affect her life.
When asked what she like to do in her spare time she said, "I love to read. Once in awhile my husband and I golf together. And I love a glass of really good wine." She is 74 years old and feels like this part of her life has only begun.
