Meet Our Friend Of The Week Teresa


It’s never too late to follow your dreams. Just ask Teresa – a baby boomer who recently retired from nursing and is now busy gardening, reading, writing, and Aging Like A Fine Wine – a metaphor that also serves as the name of her delightful blog!

Teresa and the love of her life Paul, to whom she’s been married for 32 years, are the parents of three adult children and six precious grandchildren, who they adore sharing life with! She also loves animals and over the years, has raised everything from miniature horses and a miniature donkey to a pot belly pig! Currently, she is mom to a collie named Gunnar and a beta fish, and an adoptive mom at Horses With Heart, the therapeutic riding program where she volunteers!

Teresa as lived on everywhere from the foothills of the Missouri Ozarks to the high desert in California to the hills of West Virginia, which she now calls home. She loves meeting new people through her blog, particularly other baby boomers who remember the things that made growing up in the 50s, 60s and 70s so special!

Vegetable Soup

She also enjoys sharing mouth-watering recipes like her Simple Vegetable Soup that you’ll find yourself making over and over again!

    Thank you for featuring my blog and I this week on Friendship Friday. It was a wonderful surprise and greatly appreciated! Also, thank you for hosting a wonderful link party every week!

  4. Happy Friday! It’s lovely to ‘meet’ Teresa 🙂 Thank you so much for hosting Friendship Friday. Have a lovely weekend!

  5. Thank you for hosting as always!

    I’m Charles Wolf – a creative guy who enjoys a variety of creative activities: painting, nature photography, writing, music composition, and more… Originally I am from California, lived in Texas for two years, and now work in Raleigh, North Carolina. My blog, Impulsive Artistry, is all about inspiring people to embrace their creativity, and to try something that they have never done before. I host a Monday linkup each week, my project of the week on Wednesday (often photo sets or original painting tutorials from my YouTube Channel), and I also feature Guest Artists from around the world (giving them a place from this to share their art and talk about their creative process). I really appreciate Create with Joy for hosting these linkups, giving me a place to share my work with all of you! Have a fantastic week! : )

      Thanks for your awesome introduction Charles – I always enjoy visiting your blog, watching your videos, and especially checking out your latest photos on Instagram! You are such a talented guy. I really appreciate people who generously share their gifts and talents with others and help mentor them in the creative process. So glad you’re a part of our community! 🙂

    I’m at the tail-end of the Baby Boomer generation. Can’t wait to visit Teresa! I’ve actually got a giveaway on the blog today! WooHoo! Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful weekend!

  8. I didn’t add a link because I’m not on Google+ (I’m only on Twitter and Pinterest). I love blogging about comfort food with flair for 7 years now. I post my original recipes, along with the occasional tea, travel, review, giveaway, just once a week. I’m looking forward to coming back on my next break to meet and mingle!
