    4 Reasons I Fell in Love with California

    California holds 1st place as most popular of the United States for various reasons. Being such an outdoorsy, free-spirited wanderer, I had always felt drawn to experience California for myself as I am highly intrigued by the many natural features this land has to offer such as Yosemite, the Redwood Forest, oceans surrounded by mountains, and the general hiking scene. For many others, however, the hype and fame of Hollywood, the intriguing “LA lifestyle”, and undoubtedly the beach scene is just enough to draw them in. And why wouldn’t it? …

    LifeAt50+ Swag and More

    I finally attended my first LifeAt50+ expo in Miami as a guest of AARP Member Advantages. I expected it to be pretty much like the scores of other conferences and trade shows that I have attended with rows of vendors passing out brochures, and branded swag ranging from ink pens to plastic cups to t-shirts to tote-bags to koozies. What I didn’t expect was the enthusiasm of the attendees, the usefulness of the swag, and the wide range of discounts […]

    Getting Older Does Not Suck

    I must confess. When I first began receiving materials from AARP in the mail, I would immediately tossed them in the trash. Opening the envelopes would somehow be an acknowledgement that I officially fit into AARP’s demographic. It was not something that I would readily embrace. It was easier to convince myself that AARP made a mistake in sending me the materials in the first place. Fast forward to today, I am in Miami Beach for the #LifeAt50 expo enjoying the […]
