Happy New Year, Sizzlers


Happy New Year, Sizzlers

We’ve said goodbye to 2017 and although I was taking a blogging break until next week, I wanted to take the time to wish all of you a wonderful 2018.

Before Christmas I wrote about how thankful I was to have had such a wonderful 2017 and part of that was due to YOU and supporting my blog.

Hubby and I have been spending a few days at the Coast and the weather has been glorious but hot!! I know some of you are experiencing extreme cold where you live so I hope these photos warm you up a little.  Being at the Coast for New Year has been our tradition for the last 20 years. We make a seafood platter, enjoy a glass of bubbles and reflect on what has been and what is to come.


I also finished the year on a high with Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond being named as one of the Top Websites & Blogs for Positive Aging and Retirement in 2017.  I was very honoured to be included in such wonderful company, so I would love you to check out the other blogs mentioned and perhaps leave a comment.  Thanks to Kathy at SmartLiving365.com.

I wish each and everyone of you a very happy and healthy 2018. I have some exciting things happening on the blog to help us all THRIVE and be the best version of ourselves, and I’m looking forward to sharing this with you.

I also look forward to hearing from you and continuing our journey of life Over 50  together.

    Hey Sue! Happy New Year to you! And I was very happy to include you in my list of best positive aging sites on the internet for 2017. As we all know, there are so very many to choose from but I think yours stands out as one of the best that reminds us that no matter where we live–no matter what our age–no matter what–we can still make the days ahead positive and fulfilling. Thanks for all you do and enjoy your lovely, warm and sunny New Year’s Eve! ~Kathy

      Hi Kathy! Happy New Year to you! Thank you again for the inclusion and we had a great New Year’s Eve although it was stormy in the afternoon because of the heat, it cleared for the fireworks so everyone was happy. Would love to have you as a guest writer for my Over 50 & Thriving series which starts weekly next week. I will email you with more details. xx

    Wow congrats to you Sue, so well deserved! I’m looking forward to thriving this year (I actually used the word thrive in a recent post and thought of you!). How/when do you announce your word for the year?

      Thanks Deb and how lovely that Thrive makes you think of me LOL:) I will be publishing my post on Monday with my word for the year. I don’t think it matters when you do it. I just wanted to take a break over the holidays so thought Monday 8th would be my starting point. xx

      Yes the inclusion on Kathy’s list was quite a surprise as I had no idea she even read my blog. I look forward to another year of friendship with you and helping each other on our blogging journey. xx

    A well-deserved honor! Your beach vacation looks like so much fun!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric January 8, 2018 at 08:43

      It was certainly a surprise to me Cathy but a lovely way to start the year. The beach is where our ‘home’ is although because of MIL we can’t actually live there full time yet. We always spend New Year’s there though and it is so relaxing. Happy New Year and I hope it is a great one for you, Cathy! xx
