  7. Cherie James says:

    I love your interview with Sandra, Beth. Your questions are so interesting and her answers so fascinating. What a rich life she has lived and I can’t believe she is 72 – she looks fabulous. I also can’t believe that she started blogging just recently. I know exactly what you are saying when you say blogging isn’t for the faint of heart. Hopping over to her blog right now!


    • Sandra Sallin says:

      Hi @cherriejames I’ve just discvoered you through La Contessa. Love your style. Yes, I’d only been blogging for about a year and a half when illness struck, But I’m back now. Loving your blog. PS. Next month I’ll be 75! i can’t quite belive it. Personally I think I’ve 35. Maybe that’s why I was juming over wooden blocks in flip flops and broke my wrist!

  8. Cathy Chester says:

    I fell in love with Sandra the SECOND (not even the minute) I met her in Chicago at BlogHer13. She’s entrancing, entertaining, compassionate, funny and totally lovely. She’s endlessly fascinating and has a huge heart. I love learning even more about her. Makes me sad that I don’t know if/when our paths will cross again. The world is better for having such a wonderful lady around. Thanks for this marvelous interview.

    • Sandra Sallin says:

      @cathychester:disqus will you come to BlogHer this year in Los Angeles? Pretty please? You are too kind. I can’t wait to show these beautiful comments to my husband. He’ll get such a kick out of them!

  9. Anne-Marie Kovacs says:

  11. Wow, now I will be adding this blog to my list so I can return over and over.

    I remember starting my blog in 2006 and finding absolutely NO ONE in my age group to connect with. So much has changed! I will be 74 in four weeks. I love the blogging life and I love style. This is the best of all worlds.

    Be well.
