fashion flash logoThis week Marylou of Second Lives Club is hosting Fashion FLash.  When we were young our dreams  were  well defined.  We had mental check lists– love, marriage, children, a great job– we ticked these off as years went by.  But  what we never saw coming was the lack of a map for the second half of  our lives– when our children were grown, when grandchildren moved away, when  our jobs ended.    Enter Second Lives Club, an incredible site to help make the second half of our lives as rich and meaningful as the first half. This site profiles  women who have made  a successful transition  and these stories are always inspiring.
