The blog rose out of our founder LB’s focus on trying to age naturally and with simplicity.

OK. Stop. If any of you know LB, the reality is that she wanted to survive menopause and the life changes that come with empty-nesting.

We’re not here to tell you to purge your pantry or medicine cabinet and start over. The blog’s purpose is to provide unique content, as well as the sharing of tips, information, and recipes that have been found along this journey. Hopefully it helps (or at least entertains) you, and in turn we hope to learn a few things from you.

Topics include cooking (especially for fewer household members), healthy aging, decorating and downsizing your home, certainly a few cocktail recipes, and some stories that will hopefully make you laugh or smile (aka “Senior Moments”).

Every attempt is made to provide you with valuable and trustworthy content. The information shared is based on our own thoughts and research and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent a health condition, nor has it been evaluated by the FDA.
