Heels and Tevas
for fun vibrant women who USED to think 60 was old!
We have now lived over 1 billion 892 million 160 thousand seconds and are now wading through our sixth decade. We know we’re not alone in walking through midlife into our senior years (cough, cough, cough) wondering,
“When do we start to FEEL like we’re old?”
We’re Barb & Lynnelle. This is where we’ll share our many pearls of wisdom and look forward to your pearls. Here is where the door is open for sharing and discussing (or venting) on this issue or that – as the royal we mosey through midlife; yet, always with a vibrant humorous and young-at-heart outlook.

What’s Your Road Trip Style?
Barb Here I'm soloing today while Lynnelle is on her road trip. Heels Diva Short Hop Adventure Lynnelle never fails to impress me and this road trip plan is an excellent example. She, her sweetie, and the Littlest are traveling just over 1000 miles from Elgin, Texas to St. Augustine, Florida and taking five days to get here. She has planned adventure or family stops at every [...]
6 - 11 December, 2017 - Elgin, TX to St. Augustine, FL (or BUST) And we're off. The Heels Diva, aka: Lynnelle, her beau Kurt and the Littlest Pablo are making their way from Texas to Florida to connect with the Teva Diva and her honey, EW. Fun and adventure (and pictures and videos) will ensue; much to her beau's chagrin. We're checking in from the road so stay tune [...]
Or, more of what I’m thinking … WHERE THE HELL DOES THE TIME GO!? Do you ever NOT have a July-December where you don’t think this? I wonder if our parents, or their parents felt the same – that time passed faster and faster as the years ticked by. Why does this happen? The # of seconds in a minute doesn’t change. The earth still makes a trip around the sun in [...]
An Ode to My Tevas
Barb Here (Of course) Why Tevas? Seriously, when we set sail for parts south, I had to find a boat/outdoor/walking sandal that would work for our lifestyle, fit my foot, not mar the boat, and provide some support on easy to medium hikes. I went through two brands of boating sandals before discovering Tevas, and while there may be others that would work, I love my Tevas. [...]
Women (over 60) Just Want to Have Fun
Barb here. Lynnelle will be here soon! Lynnelle and her Sweetie and the littlest Pablo are coming to St. Augustine. My sweetie, AKA EW is excited (I think he misses Pablo) but he also loves Lynnelle like a brother and likes her sweetie as only a good brother can. (First with narrowed eyes and some reservations, but now with a firm handshake and ready smile.) [...]
“Traditions” change. Those rituals, meals, and celebrations that we swore were cast in stone are altered as our families grow or as our lives change. I used to think of Thanksgiving as one of those inviolable traditions, “If you want to see us on Thanksgiving you’ll have to come to our house.” For 14 years of our married life, Thanksgiving was at our home and all were [...]
Capsule Wardrobe – Part 3
Wrapping up this project of frolicking through my wardrobe, I am breathing a sigh of relief. Lynnelle here. This Capsule Wardrobe project has been eye-opening and I recognize now that it isn't a "one-and-done" project. Part 1, Part 2 and now, Part 3: the end of this series - but not of my continued quest for simplification. [...]
The Art of Zen and the Garage Sale
Whoopee! We Sold Most of Our Stuff! Garage sales can be Great Fun! Barb here. Lynnelle is the first and only shore-based Friend-for-Life I’ve met after moving aboard. When we met, EW and I had been living on La Luna for a few years so she missed the eight insanely busy weeks of fun and adventure between viewing the boat and selling the house. [...]
