Thriving In A New Retirement Location

I was honored recently to be asked to write a blog post about the experience of relocating in retirement by Sue over at the most excellent Sizzling Toward 60 & Beyond. In that the post just went live, I'm happy to share news of it here, in the hopes that you'll hop on over using the link below, and enjoy perusing it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

And after you've read it, I hope you'll continue to return to Sue's blog, which I list in my blog roll here. The array of topics she covers all relate to thriving in our 50's, 60's and beyond, and it is consistently one of my favorite reads.

The article has also just been listed here on The Blogger's Lifestyle as well, a blog full of interesting links to articles about living large in our 50's and beyond. Well worth checking out!


Make it a great day wherever you are!


  1. That was a lovely post. I have considered moving closer to the gulf coast or Mobile ( the closest large city I live near now is Montgomery, AL), but I will be moving a little bit further north, closer to my three sons in the next year or two. Life is about change.

    1. Life is indeed about change. Either of your options seem extremely positive, so I wish you all the best in deciding which to choose!

  2. It was so great to have you as part of my Over 50 & Thriving Series, Tamara. Your story has resonated with many people and I think you have shown that if you want something badly enough you can achieve it. Thank you for being my guest and hope you will be a guest in the future. x

    1. It was a pleasure, Sue, and very cathartic to walk through the process one more time in my head. Having done it once, I now know I can do it again should there be need, and depending on what state my granddaughters end up living in once their dad's military career concludes, we just may have to!

  3. I really enjoyed that post, Tamara, and I love the idea that you held your dream close to your heart until the timing was right - good for you! There is much to be said for putting one foot in front of the other. Progress may seem minimal at the time but then you look back and . . . Voila! Mission accomplished!

    1. Hi Mary, my apologies for the slow response - we've been up to our eyeballs with our delightful, but very energetic, granddaughter!

      I much appreciate your comment about progress seeming minimal until one looks back and sees all that was accomplished - that is a terrific description that I will remember going forward!
