I read The New York Times blog called The New Old Age, written by Paula Span. This week, Paula introduced herself in a story behind the story column. She writes, "With more than 20 percent of the American population projected to be over 65 by the year 2030, per the Census Bureau, I'm unlikely to run out of material." In fact, she says the list of subjects she hopes to  tackle keeps lengthening.

If you're looking for new beginnings, these new books may help you reinvent yourself.

It's been many years since I've had kids at home who are starting a new school year, yet come September I always think about new beginnings.

The past month my mailbox has been filled with new books that can help you reinvent yourself and make positive changes. Since it's September (can you believe it), I thought I'd share a few of the titles that resonated with me, in the hope that they may resonate with you too.

My first trip to Greece with my sister N and daughter A would soon be ending. Thankfully, we saved our seaworthy adventures in Santorini for the later part of the week, including a trip to the Perissa black sand beach and a sunset catamaran cruise around the island.

If you're tired of tossed salads or just not a fan of lettuce, try some interesting variations with vegetables, fruits and protein—but no lettuce.

Are you getting a little bored with summer salads? Maybe it's time to rethink your salad choices.  

A healthy salad is low-calorie, filling and packed with nutrients. But, it can easily become highly caloric, less nutritious or boring, depending on what ingredients you choose.

Now that the weekend was behind us and we had experienced city life in Athens, it was time to spend a week soaking in the splendors of Santorini. My first trip to Greece with my sister N and daughter A was about to get even better.

Being a fashionista at heart (although I now wear yoga leggings most days), I so look forward to my yearly visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) Costume Exhibition with my BFF J and BFF N. It is a high point of the summer. This year was no exception. The exhibition was a feast for the eyes and I can't wait to share my photos.

Are you hungry?

Are you thirsty?

If not, you likely will be after you read about my fabulous foodie day at the 2017 Fancy Food Show. Last week, I spent four hours walking 362,000 square feet of the Javits Center in New York while sampling goodies offered by 2,600+ exhibiting companies. As a long-term foodie (in my previous career I worked for two major food companies for 30+ years), attending the show and scoping out new products is always fun.
