A Little Bit More About Me

#midlife blog crestingthehill.com.au

Hi! I'm Leanne - I blog about enjoying midlife - and thriving in your 50s. I'm loving every minute of my life, my marriage, my family, my friends, my work, my hobbies, and midlife in general.

It hasn't always been this way and I share the valuable life lessons I've learned since turning 50 that revolve around letting go of the things that complicate life and cause pain. I'm embracing people and choices that bring happiness and it's about being grateful for my blessings which include:
  • A strong and steady marriage that has weathered the storms of life.
  • Children who are independent adults and thriving in their own lives. 
  • Friendships that have stood the test of time and have grown stronger. 
  • Financial stability - although we don't have piles of money to spare!
  • Simplifying our lives so we can afford to work less because we spend less. 
  • Not living a life that is waiting for retirement - life is for living now!

Family-wise, I have a husband named Ross who I have been married to for 33 years, through many ups and downs and in-betweens, and we are still going strong.

We have two 'children' - Jared who is 30 and married to Hannah, and Erin who is 27 and married to Luke. Jared is a mechatronic engineer and Erin is a high school English teacher. They both moved to the city to go to university, found work, met their spouses and stayed there - making occasional trips back home to check we're still alive.
