About

This is the journey of being 50. It is about rediscovering and reinventing ourselves.

This story of post-50 success is no longer one of the prodigies, but of a new generation who is finding freedom and reinvention in the second-half of life.

I stepped away from a successful career as a TV news anchor to raise a family. In 2016, empty-nested and newly remarried, I began writing about real life perspectives on starting fresh at 50, with  a combination of inspiration, humor, and hope.

And then 2020 happened. Safely nestled back in Cincinnati, I reconnected with my long-time friend Ellen, who I met in the pre-school carpool line 30 years ago!

Together we created Paper Circus Design. Coming full circle, I’ve gone from talking about The Stuff of Life to creating it, with hand crafted, one-of-a-kind, beautiful pieces to “dress up your table.”
