I’m a woman in midlife, and I make no bones about it.  I’m fine with it.  Admittedly, after my divorce, I went through the “I need to look younger” phase, where I wore only tight skinny jeans and form fitting tank tops.  Then one day I looked at my 26 year old daughter wearing the same outfit and had what I like to call my Christopher Columbus moment:

As a child, I was the Queen of Book-It. For those unfamiliar with this 80s phenomena to promote healthy reading consumption, the program gave kids coupons for free pizzas at Pizza Hut and a hologram button with gold stars upon reading a certain amount of books. Thus, I became the family cash
