My recent speaking engagement with the USDA Forest Service Group in Asheville was such an enjoyable experience for me.
Everyone I met was so genuine and kind. It must surely be a joy to work in that office!
With me is Jennifer B. Parsell Executive Assistant to the Station Director and the Station Director, Rob Doudrick.
The beautiful lady with me is Sharon West. She was the first speaker of the day. I learned so much about diet and nutrition from her brief talk. I hope that our paths cross again soon. She is very elegant, and she has so much knowledge to share.
My talk was live-streamed to thirteen southern states including the offices in the Washington, D.C. district. For the first time I gave my presentation to ladies and gentlemen, so I included more information about the importance of nutrition. I am certain those guys were not interested in hearing about the power of accessories and heels vs flats with pant shapes.
Later in the day, we checked in at the Hotel Indigo to a penthouse suite overlooking the world. If you are afraid of heights, you would have felt more than a bit uneasy standing at this window.
The boutique hotel is a celebration of modern decor and art.
We stopped by Carmel's, one of our favorite restaurants for lunch. We love to sit by the window and watch the passing tide of people. Asheville is such a fun busy place to visit!
The tulips were in their full glory so we couldn't resist a drive through the grounds at Biltmore Estate.
Happy goats were enjoying a sunny day at the Biltmore Estate.
I am eagerly preparing for my next presentation at the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce, Prime of Life Showcase later this month.
I hope to meet you there!
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
