Thanks for stopping by The Fabulous Journey. This website is dedicated to empowering you to live a fabulous, fashionable, fit and fulfilling life. No doubt you have noticed that life in this fast-paced, ever-changing world can be hard to keep up with sometimes. I hope I can encourage you to enjoy every step of the journey; yes, even those times when you can’t seem to see the path clearly for the trees. Life is too short not to live it with vigor, enthusiasm and purpose.About Page (1)


I am a 50 year-old mother of two practically grown kids and I have been married to my wonderful husband, Sam, for 28 years. Although raised in the South, I have lived and worked in Asia for  the last twenty-one years. Oh, and I am a confessed chocolate addict (in fact, I like to have a piece of it everyday)!

I love God and I gain great joy from following Jesus’ example. He lived his life and ministry out and about. He mixed it up with all kinds of people and he loved them all. That’s what I try to do in my life.

There is a southern gospel song that says, “This joy that I have, the world didn’t give it to me. The world didn’t give it and the world can’t take it away.” Well, that pretty much sums me up. I gain comfort, hope and strength from God and I try to share a little of that with those I meet.

I am moved to write this blog because I genuinely care about women. I am moved to write because I want you to know that a fabulous, fulfilling life is a possibility if you just reach out and grab it. I am moved to write because I know the journey has not been an easy one for some of you. You may wonder if this is all there is? And my answer is this…while this life has a lot to offer, there is much more out there if you open your eyes and heart to the possibilities.

I try to mix things up with a little fashion, fitness and fulfillment; whatever hits me on a given week. I hope you will come back and visit again soon. Feel free to leave comments and suggestions of how this site can enhance your life journey.

I write fitness/health posts to help us along the Weight Journey. Weight Journey specifically addresses the ongoing issue of weight loss, weight management and fitness. I believe adopting a new weight loss mindset and mindful eating can lead to a sustainable, lifelong success story and help you lose weight for good. I am living proof that weight loss over 40 is attainable.

All these posts are a normal part of the posting schedule for this website, but if you are specifically interested in weight loss/fitness topics, you can subscribe to receive just the Weight Journey posts.

I would love to hear from you. Feel free to drop me a note anytime.
