Meet Susan Good: Wife, mother, grandmother, writer, adventurous traveler, cancer survivor, fashionista….but most of all, GIRLFRIEND.  Her site, HONEY GOOD, reflects her upbeat philosophy of celebrating a woman’s life after 50, but, most of all, it is a forum for making her thousands of readers into her own GIRLFRIENDS.  She is the wise GIRLFRIEND you wish you had – dispensing advice on relationships, life’s joys (and sorrows), makeup, fashion, and living life to the fullest.  HONEY’S latest musings arrive daily in your inbox, a gift to be first anticipated, then unwrapped and finally savored.

Your eyes smile of a soul full of life that only time has brought you and yet you’re excited about what’s around the corner. That’s the epitome of aging and your eyes say that about you.

Honey, you are such an inspiration to me in so many ways. As I read your daily posts, and as I plan and head toward my retirement, I find myself looking forward to the next chapter in my life, rather than dreading it, because you have opened up my mind and my heart to all the possibilities there are in the world, but mostly you have opened my eyes to the importance of relationships, including my relationship with myself. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and the wisdom of other people–it starts my day!


I have recently retired (at 58) and although my husband and I do not have children, we do have dogs and we are enjoying all of the extra hours in the day to spend with them, family and friends. Your blog provides inspiration and ideas for me as to how to use this additional time to be more creative, helpful and purposeful.

I also want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to send me a lovely personal message. Extremely kind!!!! Thank you.

Totally LOVE your style and look forward to your posts and insights. You are truly a happy, content woman who knows how to maintain balance in her life. Your stories inspire and entertain. The good life belongs to those who seek it out, especially in the sunset years. I find I treat myself better now than I ever did in the past. My favorite expression is “Later is NOW”. It truly is. Why wait?
