It’s about to be 2019. 2018 was a wonderful year for “thisisyourbestyear”. We hope that you have enjoyed the ride. The ride tried to inform, educate, give you laughter, keep you engaged and more. It is our hope that you are ready to continue this journey.

In all of these activities, events, seminars and other things we have always wanted to inform you. Being women of a certain age, we wanted to show you that the world is now ours to do with as we wish. Sometimes we couldn’t believe what we talked about.

In 2018 we expanded our social media outreach. Not only are we on Facebook and Twitter we finally made the leap to Instagram plus we even do Instagram TV. We’ve tried to post to at least one of these outlets on a daily basis. We even did our first podcast this year–it was great (Inspired to Greatness with Matt Blake). We were excited that Dallas Voyage Magazine labeled us an “Influencer” (April 25, 2018).

As we enter 2019 we are excited to see what it will bring. As we have previously found out there is so much to do, see and learn. So 2019 should be even better. We are here for you.

We’ve already started on our review of Clark’s Botanical Skincare. It is a review that will take us approximately six weeks to conclude. You can find out more about the beginning of this review on our Instagram TV channel (thisisyourbestyear) or on our Facebook Page (thisisyourbestyear).

Here are some of the things we talked about in 2018

We are looking forward to sharing even more with you in 2019. Let us know what you would like for us to talk about, events that you would like for us to cover and more. We will try our best to meet your request.

Thank you for voting us Best Blog/Blogger 2018 in the Star-Telegram’s Fort Worthy Contest.

Please follow us on our social media sites at Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Remember “thisisyourbestyear”. Happy New Year. 2019 is going to be great. You are not too old!

No Resolutions–Just Gonna Do!

I do not make New Year’s resolutions. I make an I’m Gonna Do list. Most of the time I complete the list with some things put off until the next year. This year in 2014 there will be none of that. In fact I am starting today.

As a woman of a certain age I have always had things that were for special occasions–not any more. It is a special day because I am still here.

I am “gonna” use that china that gets used only a couple of times a year. I will not buy another paper or plastic plate. When my folks tell me we don’t have any more clean plates I am “gonna” tell them to reach up there and get that china. Each and every day will be special.

champagne glasses 1When we popped that bottle of champagne to bring in the New Year we used my mother’s crystal champagne glasses. These glasses are not the flutes but the ones seen in the old movies–the champagne coupe or saucer.

There will be nothing in my house that can not be used.  Everything is fair game.

I say this because twice in the year 2013 I have cleaned out relatives homes where they were saving things for that special occasion. I have told relatives that the person left them something, and the relatives will have an estate sale, sell the items to an antique shop–maybe this was the special day they were waiting for.

I’m not waiting anymore–every day is special.  Remember “thisisyourbestyear”– make every day special

PS–I am not “gonna” iron those napkins though. I will buy nice paper napkins.
