  12. Hi Susan and Mr. Mickey,

    Happy healthy everything to you both. You both look so radiant. What magazine cover are you posing for? I need to pick up a copy and read about them.

    Looking forward to reading all you have to share in this new year.

  13. I purchased Beauty Counter products based on your recommendations. I’m very happy with them. In the morning I use Mineral Boost Hydrating Essence, Tripeptide Radiance Serum and All Bright C Serum. I live in Colorado and should be using a sun block every day. I used to use Neutrogena Anti Wrinkle with spf 20. Is it ok to use this with all the Beauty Counter I’m using? Seems like a lot of layers. I don’t know what to do for a sun block. Thanks for your help.

  14. And every good wish for peace, joy and good health to you too. Thank you for all your shared thoughts and wisdom – your posts give me such joy

  15. I wish you a happy and prosperous New Year 2023! .

    May this new year bless you with fifty two weeks and twelve months of happiness and never ending joy .

  18. Love your styles.
    I would like if you can send your healthy way of eating. What you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner and how you had slim down if you do any exercise. I am on a prescription medicine, Synthroid, lisinopril and Alendronate – generic for Fosamax.

    1. I rarely eat three meals daily and don’t take any medication. Giving my body a break from digesting food has been immensely helpful since fasting offers many health benefits. Read more about my habits and what I eat here and here. I am as active as possible every day. I often go for long brisk walks and do Pilates or yoga daily. I follow Move with Nicole here for guidance in yoga and Pilates.

  19. WOW, I m traveling the West ski resorts and haven’t had time to really look at Mr Mickey’s photos. He looks great with his weight loss. Bravo! You both look marvelous!
    Happy New Year to you both!

  20. Dear Susan ,

    sincerely, Jolanda

  21. Happy New Year, Susan! And, thank you for the link to “Move With Nicole.” I’m always looking for fitness routines that I can add to my arsenal – and her YouTube channel will blend seamlessly with my yoga sessions. As always, thank you for your focused inspiration – it helps me to recommit to my lifestyle goals.

  22. Happy New Year to one of my favorite couples. Each of your blogs is such a gift to which I look forward to receiving; seldom do I not take a lovely idea from them. Your knowledge as to what makes one figure look better is extremely advantageous and welcomed. Thank you for your honesty! You just continue to improve — if that’s even possible!

    Warmest wishes to both Mr. Mickey and you,

  23. Wonderful example of how to wear sparkle for special times! Thank you for all of your suggestions to make living with a little style possible in this season of life!! Happy happy 2023 with good health, laughter, and, of course, adventure!!

  24. Happy New Year to you too. As an over-seventy woman, I so enjoy your posts and their emphasis on dressing for one’s own lifestyle, age and body. Thank you!

  25. Wow! Mr. Mickey looks great and years younger. You also look your usual beautiful self. Happy New Year.

  26. The two of you look fantastic! Happy new year!
    I am not sure about that tunic. Love the color love the style I’m just not super crazy about the length. Not to say that it could not grow on me! In fact, it might be really good with my Spanx leather leggings? Hmmmm, maybe you’re on to something here!

    PS. The quilted jacket I ordered from Chicos that you showed, was a hit with my husband and my son! They both complimented me! For that, I thank you!

  27. This outfit is fabulous on you! A bit jealous. I ordered this jacket in a size 6 (usually wear a 6 or 8). It was on sale and I thought it would be a great addition to my holiday basics. However, I am a pear where you are an inverted triangle. That’s the only reason I can think of as to why the jacket looked great from the front but was very loose and frumpy from the back. So unfortunately I had to return it…and then I see this picture!! At least I know I like the look so I will continue to search for another similar jacket. Happy New Year!

  28. Happy New Year to you both. You have given me so many ways to Shop my closet and keep my look fresh and interesting. Your work matters and I appreciate your hard work to bring interesting and relevant content.

  29. Happiest New Year to both of you from Australia
    Absolutely love your posts looking forward to the same in 2023.
    Take care,

  30. I always enjoy reading your blogs and seeing the photos of you and Mr. Mickey. You two are very blessed. I lost my dear husband this past November to colon cancer. We had been married for 48 years, together 53, and I miss him more than you can imagine. Cherish your adventures every day.
    Thank you both and have a blessed new year.

  31. Dear Susan, so good to see you both. I was unsure what sadness you were facing before the holidays and am glad you both appear well. We have been on a cruise for 2 weeks and just checking in

  32. Thank you Susan and I wish the same to you and to Mr. Mickey.
