About Me:

The Condensed Version

Hi, I’m Abbey!

Thanks for stopping by Refreshingly Fifty.

I’m tempted to copy & paste my online dating profile in here! Wouldn’t that be HILARIOUS?

Me, in a nutshell: I’m 50 years old, and I’m starting over. I’ve been accused of being a devoted friend, dog lover, Pinot Noir & bourbon drinker, avid reader and aspiring writer. I’m almost always on time, and I usually have split ends in my hair.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: In November of 2020, I had to file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. This, in no way, makes me an expert on the subject, but I did learn A LOT, and I’m happy to share what I know with anyone that needs/wants that information.

Wrapping it up: I believe in Botox and spray tans (if that’s what makes you feel good about yourself), listening more than I speak, treating people the way I’d like to be treated, and that we ALL have value and worth. I admit it, when I’m wrong, and I believe in doing the right thing, even when no one is looking.

And finally, I believe in being truthful and transparent, which is why the long version of how I arrived at this starting-over point is posted below for you to read, if you’re so inclined.
