Once you get past the age of 50 (I’ve lived over half my life already! Eeeek!), an About Me page can get pretty detailed, so I’ll make this brief.
I’m a grandma, aka “Nana”, which is THE best title in the whole wide world! I believe children keep me young. Just watching them explore the world and learn new things is fascinating.
By day, I’m an accountant. That’s right, a true numbers nerd. Ask me to create a spreadsheet and produce a report and I’m all over it.
But what really drives me is that I’m an info nerd as well. I am a life-long learner so gathering information and doing research is what makes me tick.
I didn’t become an accountant until I was 51. Since learning and education excite me, I went back to college at 49 and worked my tail off through a 2 year online degree. I now have a piece of paper that says I have a Masters of Science in Accounting. Best decision I ever made.
I climbed my first (and only) 14er when I was 48.
With the children raised and with those two big things checked off the list, I feel like I can face anything, including this aging thing.
My favorite thing to do is sit down with a good mystery on a chilly afternoon with a warm blanket and my cat.
My favorite outdoor activity is biking because it makes me feel like a kid again. My other favorite outdoor activity is hiking, especially in the Rocky Mountains.
And cookies are my favorite food…with a hot cup of tea…and a book…and my cat.
