Thanks for checking out SAVVY/Main Line, a blog about navigating through midlife with fun, flair and a fresh perspective. My goal is to help you become your absolutely best, most savvy self – inside and out – schooled to handle any curves these pesky in-between years may throw at you.
So sure, SAVVY will address some of the icky stuff – the slack skin, the weird hair eruptions, the hormonal havoc, the brain fog, the self-sabotage. I’m on this journey with ya, sista!
But we’ll also talk about the joys and opportunities of our second adulthood. With our kids mostly fending for themselves, we’re freer now than we’ve been in years –which is a little terrifying and a lot cool at the same time. The empty nest? It’s like being 20 with money, right?
SAVVY will focus on the things – big and small – that matter in your life. Right here. Right now. I plan to bare my soul a bit and to introduce you to my girl crushes – the women I’ve met – as a journalist, a mom, a community volunteer – who inspire and fascinate me. I’ll also sniff out all the stuff that promises to beautify, strengthen, fortify and rejuvenate us, to road test what I can, and to report back with the straight scoop. I do the legwork; you reap the rewards.
SAVVY will answer questions like:
- Is that new workout worth your time?
- What’s that new restaurant like?
- How can I punch up my tired wardrobe without breaking the bank?
- Where should I turn to cure insomnia/beat the blues/be kinder to myself?
I hope you’ll come to think of me as that loyal girlfriend who calls it exactly as she sees it (but in a nice way) and as a trusty scout on this exhilarating and sometimes exasperating midlife adventure. Let’s make this a two-sided conversation, OK? I really value your views, tips and suggestions, so please, comment away!
At my core I believe:
- Knowledge is power.
- In vulnerability lies strength.
- Personal connection is key to happiness.
- Looking good almost always makes you feel good.
- Having fun must be taken very, very seriously.
