Hey you! Welcome to SuziGabs!! Come on in and let me get you a cup of coffee (or if you prefer a coke from my stash, shhhhh, don’t tell anyone) and let’s gab!
Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Suzi. Wife, mother of three, nana of six, and dog momma to two pugs and a Jack Russel/ Chihuahua mix. Life is crazy.
I turned 50 a few months ago…ahhhh!! Where did the last 50 years go?! Half a century, gone in the blink of an eye. I had tough times over the last 50 years, but they made me stronger and brought me to where I am today. Happy, settled, and maybe just a teensy bit crazy…just a teensy bit!
You may be wondering what possessed me to start SuziGabs, well….
I was in line at the grocery store awhile back behind a woman that was about my age. She had a short haircut and was sweating (and not from the heat), she was overweight and frazzled ( I know how that feels, when a hot flash hits it is very frazzling). I looked at her cart and it had 3 cases of Mountain Dew and about 6 bags of pizza rolls
Now, I don’t know her story, she could have been buying all of that for her grandchildren that were coming over to stay all night. But, she could do so much better than that! Not just for herself, but if it was for grandchildren…no, no, no!! Let’s not start them down that path!!
I thought to myself, I could help her. I could point her in the right direction for healthier food choices, give her advice to manage those hot flashes, and help her pick out a more flattering haircut (I was a cosmetologist for 15 of my 50 years). I could help her, encourage her, give her support.
That is what I want to do here on SuziGabs. Help, encourage, and give support to you, my new friend, in this time of your life. Start a conversation about living well, living healthy, and living happy. Listen to your dreams, hopes and even your regrets (I know we all have them). Except some real talk from me, I will tell you what I really think and it may not always be pretty. It will, however, be with the intention of making us better versions of ourselves. That I promise you!
Stick around and let’s get the conversation started!
Talk to you soon!
