My Podcast Journey

My son Eric took this picture of me just before he left for college

Thursdays have been the day I post a weekly podcast and I am sure you have noticed that I have not posted one in a while. I keep hoping that I will pull one out but each week comes and goes and I do not do it. The truth is that I miss my sound engineer and my son, Eric. He was my go-to guy who took my material and magically turned it into the weekly podcast. Now that he is in his first year of college, I have tried to do it on my own and I have done it on my own but my heart is not in it. I am sure when I feel ready I will either figure out how to keep it going myself or hire another person to help me transmit weekly podcasts, because I have always valued bringing my conversations on TFIO to life! But for now, it was important to give you the reason why you haven’t heard me on the blog and I am sorry. I look forward to bringing back the podcasts and when I do, you will be the first to know!

With Love, Melissa

My podcast returns this week, and I am thrilled. I have been nervous to produce my own podcasts, since my engineer and my podcast-parter-in-crime, my son Eric, left for college. But I am a big girl, and I know that I can do it. Here are this week’s fashion stories that are on my mind. So glad to be back!

I love and welcome your comments!

Celebrating my age!

Today is my birthday; I find it hard to believe that I am 54, but life has had a way of sneaking up on me! One thing is true about being this age; I try to be grateful every day, and more mindful about experiencing each joyful moment. Join me in today’s podcast and hear more of my musings about what it means to age well (hint: a good fitting bra helps!).

The table shot from my Senior Prom - that's me in the middle

The table shot from my Senior Prom – that’s me in the middle

So, it’s Prom Week. My high school senior, Eric, is going to his prom in two days; we just picked up his classic black tuxedo. And I, inspired by Man Repeller, as I often am, ask this question for Throwback Thursday: say I was going to the Prom now – what would I wear? The answer is that I do not regret anything about my Senior Prom dress, and I would do most everything the same as I did in 1978. Everything, but one thing. Listen to my podcast to hear what that one thing would be …
