Earlier this week, I asked you to opine on what the best and worst of life after 50 are to YOU. I shared mine and, not surprisingly, you did not disappoint when it came to sharing yours.
The end result is the following endearing and entertaining, funny and sometimes frustrating, list of the things that we adore about life after 50, as well as a few things that are just annoying. All of which are made better by knowing that we are in this together. As always, thank you for joining me in this community we call HoneyGood.com. Your friendship is a treat.
