WHO AM I?
My name is Leanne and I'm a fifty something midlife blogger and to paraphrase Steve Miller.....
I'm a grinner
I'm a singer
I'm a lover
And I'm a pinner
I do my blogging in the sun
MORE ABOUT ME
I reached the grand old age of 50 a few years ago and had the choice of sinking into middle age or celebrating it. I chose to celebrate and from there I started cresting the hill at the end of 2014. I found my voice again and in the process I connected with women all over the world who were also enjoying this great adventure that is midlife. If you feel like you're finally coming up for air after years/decades of being "all things to all people", then this is the place for you!
I used to define my life by saying I was a wife, or a mother, or by what I did as my profession. Now I define myself on my own terms - as a woman in my own right. I'm discovering who I am, and I'm really liking that person! It's like I've reached the "crest of the hill" in life, the climb is behind me and the view stretches out in front.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM CRESTING THE HILL
If you feel like you need new direction or a breath of fresh air, then join me on this journey of re-creating ourselves. I aim to be a woman who is gracious and grateful, kind and considerate of others, fun and always having a smile to share, loving to my family and friends, and also knowing my boundaries and being true to myself.
I'll be sharing tips on how to find the sunshine in life, prompts on appreciating the many blessings that come our way, stories from my life and family, and so much more. Please feel free to join the conversation in the comments section because connection is what midlife is all about.
