Come along with me as I take on 49 Before 50!

I’m Emily Kaufman, The Travel Mom.  Welcome to my year of celebrating my 49th birthday.  I have spent the past 25 years being an awesome mom (which I plan to continue), however, now that my kids are both off to college I am ready to tackle some new adventures.  My definition of “adventures” is very broad and includes all kinds of fun; some that is adrenaline pumping/thrill seeking and others are simple yet meaningful.  I might try being a red head and I would love to perfect making the ideal dirty martini.

When I was younger I always looked at women “of a certain age” as possessing a special poise that I couldn’t wait to find.  They seemed to be comfortable in their own skin and self confident in their decisions.  Now that I am “of that age” it is time for me to get to that place.  I am hoping that by taking on these challenges I will inspire other women to join me.  What are we waiting for?  If not now, when?

Come along with me as I take on 49 Before 50.


If not now, when?
