About Me

Hi! I’m Despene and I thought I’d introduce myself.

I’m a woman “of a certain age” meaning ….. I’m not 20 anymore.

I have graduated college and worked for my whole adult life. I’m married and have two amazing children.

I am retired from my corporate job and my children are grown and well on their way, in their lives. My husband still works, although, this is his “retirement” job.

A few years ago, I found myself, at home….. alone….. with time on my hands. I had time to look at my life and think about all the wonderful and challenging times I have had the privilege to experience .

I had to come to terms with the fact that I wasn’t ready to just “go off into the sunset”!

I realized that I actually had an opportunity to figure out what I wanted to do “when I grow up!”

I love, my family, entertaining, traveling, jewelry, fashion, politics, archaeology, meeting people and making new friends.

This blog is a result of all these loves!

I hope you enjoy it and visit often!
