In case we haven’t met before, I’m Amy. I’m a 49-year-old Minnesotan who loves to share and hear stories. A recovering introvert, I have worked in sales for the last two decades but now find myself with the time to indulge my creative pursuits-writing, cooking and gardening. My last go-round at blogging was over at AmytheMom.com and I loved the online community that spun off from that effort. I’m ten years older, hopefully wiser, and much more aware of the importance of connecting with others. So with that, welcome to Near50.com!
