Welcome to This is Your Best Year!

Welcome to thisisyourbestyear”!  You and I are on this journey together.  Together and collectively, we will give suggestions on living life to the fullest.  This is a blog for women who thought that when they reached this age, life was over.  This is for all of those women who thought their mothers were old at this age–well they may have been, but that’s not the case anymore.


We will discuss everything from health, beauty, faith, life, children, grandchildren, exercise, careers, retirement, starting all over again in love and/or career. We will talk about learning the word no, taking time to be who we are.  With this blog we will have fun, we will talk fashion, food, travel and all kinds of products–in other words, we’re going to talk about us.

You can always email us at and see all the things we are doing by visiting us at thisisyourbestyear on these social media sites–Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and YouTube.  We are also on Twitter at: thisisyourbestyear@mariciajohns.

Let’s get excited ladies, and stay tuned.  Remember–“THIS IS YOUR BEST YEAR”!

    I love the content in your blog. I have a blog on wordpress too LOL (that I haven’t been attending lately but plan to change LOL). I have have just recently retired at 62 and plan to start my adventures. My oldest children are in their 40’s and my youngest is 19. I’ve raised children since I was 15 years old and I truly believe this is my best year so far however, I believe the best is yet to come. I am ready to settle in to a happy, prosperous and vigorous retirement. Passport in one hand and plane fare in the other. Watch out world, I’m coming to getcha’.

    Marcia – this is a great concept and a very good way to look at life. Especially as time seems to zip by so quickly now. There is just no other logical way to look at life, so thank-you for the reminder!
