ABOUT FRANTASTICALLY FRAN
AN ORDINARY DAY IN A NOT SO ORDINARY LIFE.
In a nutshell I am a graduate of Shorter University, currently employed with Emory University, married for over 3 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 a while back, 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.
BEST LAID PLANS
My plan for this blog is merely to be a tool for me to organize my thoughts about my life to include how I have overcome the agony of hair loss known as Alopecia; survival as a teen runaway; nurturing a marriage for nearly 30 years; raising a daughter; meeting my biological father at age 46; and of course my ride as I journey through the aging process. Weaved in will be things I’ve learned through my journeys that may inspire Ah Ha moments for you. Some new nuggets and some not so new. Fair warning, organization is not my best quality so bare with me if I digress at times. So that I’m off to a good RE-start, I have created categories in which the majority of my conversations will fall:
Menopause Minute – Simply anything associated with the aging process – I know this sounds a bit sexist but to the men, please visit. You might learn something and there may be something that might help you through a rough patch with your best half.
Alopecia Awareness – Updates, experiences and tips having to do with hair loss and all of it’s baggage.
Coffee Talk – Anything off the beaten path that’s on my mind (just cuz).
Family Ties – All things family and some intricate dysfunctional details.
Simply Frugal – Anything related to personal finance.
This blog and my life are a constant works in progress. But then, that’s why I’m so Frantastically Fran!!!
