Every grandmother has her story. I may not know each of you personally, but I know that, like me, you’ve had loves and losses, trials and triumphs. But where does that story live – other than in your heart and mind?
“I feel invisible because of my age,” is a leading thought in the minds of many women of a certain age.

I think this quote speaks to us as women over 60. In this season of our lives, it’s not always about keeping up with the latest trends, but rather, knowing ourselves and what we like and feel confident in.
