Turning 65

On Sunday, April 30, Jack and I had dinner with my sister and brother-in-law to celebrate Jack's 71st birthday. It was a wonderful time at Olive Garden. Jack wanted the salad and garlic bread. I was looking forward to shrimp scampi, so Olive Garden it was.

It was a hot day, so I dressed in comfortable clothes, including a pair of Sketchers on my feet. I'm suffering from Sciatica on my left side, so I wasn't about to wear any shoes with stacked heels.

I wore a cap sleeved top and pull-on white capris. I even took off the bracelet I was wearing because it became uncomfortable with the heat.

I mentioned in an earlier post that we are experiencing warmer than usual temperatures, so you learn to dress for the weather, regardless of the occasion.

As I said, it was Jack's birthday, but it was also a reminder to me that my birthday is two weeks from Jack's. I will turn 65.

Turning 65 means Medicare. It is also a reminder that life is moving faster than I expected. I will, however, embrace this birthday because I do appreciate everyday. Even with all the aches and pains :)

It is one reason why I reinvented this blog, and decided to focus on women in their 60s, 70s, and beyond. I'm not an expert on fashion or health, but I love to research, and I love to write. It's my passion.

 We all need activities that excite us. I have retired friends that are fabulous photographers and others who are embracing this time in life with golf or gardening. I hope you have activities that you indulge in as often as you can.  

Enjoy the day, and I look forward to talking to you about Medicare. So many options! And for those who have already experienced the deluge of insurance companies contacting you, Bless You! You survived it!

Please share my posts :)
