What is PRIME?

You are in the right place if:

  • You’ve ever wished that life came with an instruction book
  • You wish you had someone to talk to about the issues in your life – an older sister or a friend who’s been where you are now
  • You’re looking for tips and advice to help you juggle your many roles and responsibilities
  • You are working to become the woman you were meant to be
  • You recognize that life is a journey and want to make the most of it

Are YOU a woman in her PRIME?

It’s not about age. You can be a woman in your prime whatever your age and stage. Being a woman in your prime is about realizing that you have one life and embracing the chaotic, mish-mash, ever-changing miracle that it is while also working to improve and redefine yourself  in each area.

You probably have lots of interests. I know I do. Whether it’s finding a new recipe, a tip to help me look and feel better, an idea to try out around the house, or hints to make my money stretch farther, or merely contemplating the human condition and the big life lessons, I’m interested in it all.  Women are complicated. We’re multi-faceted and our lives are never about just one thing. So this blog won’t just be about one thing either – it’s about ALL of the facets that make up our lives.

However, there is an underlying component: It’s about becoming the best you can be.

Self improvement, become a better woman

Each letter in the word PRIME represents one component of a well-balanced life.

PRIME, as I define it is this:

P = your Physical self

It’s important to strive to feel and look good. This is where you’ll find information about health, beauty, and fashion.

R = your Relationships

As women, our lives are often centered around caring for others. This is where we’ll talk about our significant others, our families, our friends, our communities. If it concerns other people, it’s fair game

I = your Inner Self

As a former educator I believe that a day in which you learn something new is a good day. A personal goal of mine is to try to read more, to stay abreast of current events, and to become more of the person I believe I’m supposed to be. This is where you’ll find information about personal development, balancing work and life (in other words, getting your act together), education, and of course, some teacher stuff since that was my life for many years.

M = your Money

I’ve often told my daughter that money doesn’t make us happy, but that the lack of money can make us unhappy. I’ve tried to work to improve my own financial well-being through frugality, wise money skills, and smart shopping. I know that I still have much to learn in this area, but I’m determined to not stick my head in the sand and then wonder why I’m broke. Whether you’re looking for a new recipe, a DIY project, an idea for your home, organizational tips (because being organized saves us money),or basic money information, you’ll find it here.

E = your need to Escape

Life can be tough and making time for fun is essential. Escape is about purposely and intentionally finding ways to bring joy into our lives because for most of us, the big moments in life are few and far between. What brings you joy and when was the last time you experienced it? What can you incorporate into your life and home to make it run more smoothly?

We all want to make the most of our lives. Enjoy the journey.
