Versatile Style by Tracey

Hello world!

Posted on: September 10, 2012

I am a 47 year old stay at home mother of four.  I have a son and daughter in college and sons 16 and 12 .  Last year I began homeschooling my youngest and am so proud of what we have accomplished and want to scream from the rooftops of our success after the school said he had a learning disability in reading and writing and he soon discovered that they had a “teaching disability.”   They never went back over phonetic work, which we did last year and miracles ensued.  If anyone is interested in a program for 3rd graders to adults, please e-mail and I will give you info on a program that is age appropriate.

In 2009 my mother passed away, after several years of illness where I was her caregiver.  I gained over 6o lbs due to the pain of watching her suffer dementia.  I am ready to live fully again,  embrace, life and my health.  I recenlty joined Weight Watchers and have reached the half way point in my weight loss.

I am a native of Virginia Beach,VA and have lived here all my lifeif if you don’t count the seven months my husband moved us to his home near Boston when he got out of the military in our first year of marriage. August to February was enough for me to know I wanted to be home with the sun and much milder winters.  Smart hubby agreed and brought me home and I often joke that the decision is the sole reason we are still married 22 years later..

I love fashion and am obsessed with creating an affordable wardrobe for my soon to be thinner body.  I hope to be braver in my fashion choices and burst out of my comfort zone and really experiment and have fun.   I plan to do some refashions to alter clothing I currently love as my body shrinks.  Stay tuned and share this exciting time of rebirth and growth as I embrace the final years of mothering minor children and seek a new found life for myself.
