Welcome to Mixing Up Midlife, a weekly show for women in their 50's and beyond who want to explore this incredible age by being more adventurous and more curious. 
Each week Terri and Melissa talk about what matters most to empty-nesters and mid-life women.
Part reality show, part audio diary and part cocktail hour, this show is about remembering how to have fun in midlife.

Leave us a review if you enjoyed the podcast. As always, thanks for listening to Mixing Up Midlife, a podcast for women over 50 who are adventurous, curious and want to have fun.

Jun 7, 2024

Terri and Melissa discuss the importance of micro vacations, and share their recent getaway experiences. We talk about memorable discussions from our last guest, Jean Blasberg, and the overarching philosophy of 'using your life as a laboratory.' 

Is writing your own obituary a trend?  

We wrap up  the episode with weekend watches, noting shows like 'Dark Matter' and 'Hacks,' and contemplate future content such as a book club discussion.
