... the tales of two sisters

Dana lives in Seattle, and Tracie lives in Germany. We are businesswomen, writers and humorists. We write about life, dating, and today's modern women.


When I poll my friends and family, without fail, the majority list Thanksgiving as their favorite holiday. I believe it’s more than just a time to “consider it a blessin’ you are here to eat the dressin’. Take a moment and reflect on all you have to be thankful for. First off, you woke up! Today, I want us all to take a moment and just be in gratitude for all our blessings. Particularly those blessings that don’t cost you a thing. The love of true friendship. A brisk walk. The feel of the sun or the sound of a rain storm. Listening to your favorite song. A tantalizing read. The exhilaration after a workout or any job well done. A movie that you can relate to. Savoring a glass of your favorite vino. Laughter with those you love. Raising amazing children. Dreams and keeping them alive. A card, email or text from a special someone. Community service and bringing a smile to those in need. Health, family, and keeping hope alive for the betterment of our future.

The Menopausebarbees are especially thankful for the outpouring of love and support with the release of my sister, Tracie’s book, Incompatible with Nature- A Mother’s Story. As my sister so poignantly states, “life is full of disappointments and none of us is immune. The improbable seems a lifetime away, but the truth is that we win some, we lose some, and sometimes we lose a lot. We struggles daily to navigate existence and regardless of the magnitude of our challenges, we seek inspirational stories of faith and hope, especially when courage is tested. There is no greater gift to share all year round than the gift of love.”

So with Love and Thanksgiving

Now get ready to Gobble til Ya Wobble! Happy Thanksgiving!
