Take Notes from This "Very Old Grandmother"

I haven't been able to post as much as I would like, as I have been doing a bit of travelling through Europe. I am very excited about my next stop in Rome, where I know I'll find some great Advanced Style. The woman above, Rita, is one of the most amazing women I met while shooting in London. She writes here very own blog called VeryOldGrandmother.com where she shares tips on how to stay young and vital( and computer savvy) and clever anectdotes about her life.Do you guys know any other great blogs written my older ladies and gents, i think it would be great to compile a list!

Below is my favorite post from the Very Old Grandmother blog where Rita lists the things that her family members complain about and the things a fabulous older lady like her can still do! I hope you have the chance to read the rest of her posts and if you know of anyone I should meet during my travles to Italy please send me an email.

As one VOG to another....I love it! I didn't hear you complaining about what you 'can't do'...probably there is nothing...that matters! hugs!

Quite an inspiration to see a lady like her younger at heart and mind than many 20 years old.
There is something about age that nobody tells: if you drop on the way all the unnecessary luggage, life becomes wonderful as you grow and flow with life.
