It’s a nice change from the down-and-dirty Lower East Side; so quiet and peaceful. I’ve still got mountains of unpacking to do, though, and so this will have to suffice as today’s post. Apologies for that. But in the meantime, why don’t your share with me your tips on how to get yourself settled into a new home in the comments, OK?
Tally and I had the best conversation with former What Not to Wear cohost and current podcaster Stacy London, who I really, really liked. It was an interestingly uplifting discussion, in which we covered everything from the idea that you can’t get to a midlife renaissance without having a midlife crisis first; why expectation is the death of hope; and, of course, how to age with (fabulous) style. Listen in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.
