I am celebrating 49 before 50 because it is time for me to do some of the things I want to do. My philosophy is – if not now, when? What am I waiting for? And Why not? I have been a wonderful mother for the past 22 years, shared a great partnership with my husband of 24 years, have been a supportive family member, a hard working business woman and a quality friend. It is time for me to experience even more and I am doing it with the goal of accomplishing 49 first time things before I turn 50.  I have many things I would love to try this year, but the ultimate adventure for me would be to celebrate my 50th birthday by performing a duet with Meatloaf of possibly the worlds greatest song, Paradise by the Dashboard Light.

My goal is to inspire other women to join in on the fun because we are only just beginning!
