An Ordinary Day In A Not So Ordinary Life!

I’m living life like it’s golden in another ordinary day in a not so ordinary life. Fantastically Fran

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Frances Stanfield and I live in the Atlanta Metropolitan area. In a nutshell I am a graduate of Shorter University, currently employed with Emory University, married for over three decades and have one fantastic daughter. I like to think of myself as one of the many Georgia Peaches gracing HotLanta. When I first started this blog last year, I thought that I wanted to talk about all things frugal but quickly realized that always finding the best deal was only just one part of who I “really” am. I suddenly turned 50 and realized that I have many things to talk about that might help someone. Each and every one of us are unique in our own skin and just as I have learned from others, I hope to impress upon you parts of my life that will be teachable moments for you.

My Passions!

Alopecia Awareness

Experiences having to do with hair loss and all of it’s baggage

Family Ties

All things family and a few intricate dysfunctional details

Menopause Minute

Aging and all of it’s little shenanigans 

Life's Lessons

I’ve been through the thicket and have learned along the way. I am a work in progress.
