No, I didn't celebrate a birthday recently, but I am happy to "shout out my age" and be proud of it! Olay is proudly turning 60 years old this year and asked bloggers if they were also daring enough to shout out their age to the world. I recently changed my social media profile picture to this photo, as I feel it shows I'm truly happy to be the age I am. I am excited to be alive and on the cusp of a new decade and I look forward to the next chapter of my life. If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you know that my husband and I are planning to move to Colorado in a few months, to live closer to our children and grandchildren. I will also take on the role of caring for my daughter's expected baby girl during the day while she is at work. I know I will be busy, but happy, and that there will be many new experiences to look forward to.
This life long New York City resident will soon go on the adventure of moving cross country to live in a former ranch community that is over a mile high!
I will be exchanging my urban lifestyle and views from Brooklyn of the Manhattan skyline....
...for a suburban lifestyle and views of Colorado's beautiful, and rustic, front range.
I know it will be worth change to be close to my grandchildren! Seeing then grow up, and being more of a part of their lives is on top of my happy "bucket list." I'm sure they will keep me young and active!
Also, the American West is a beautiful area of our country and my husband and I look forward to exploring more of it, and enjoying different opportunities in our new community. As part of our bucket lists, we hope to drive to many Western states that we have yet to see, and visit more National Parks. We hope to remain active by hiking, horseback riding, bicycling and getting involved with winter activities in our new neighborhood.
Congratulations, Olay, on your 60th anniversary! I'm glad you encouraged us to embrace our age and take care of our skin as we also stay active and full plans for the future.
Are you daring enough to shout your age to the world? What is on your "bucket list'?
