Hi, I'm Hayley, the creator of The Next New Thing (to Me). This is a website where I share my adventures and discoveries as a 50-something woman who is embracing this new season of life, after having been a book writer for almost 30 years, I’m trying something new with this short form style!

I've always been curious and eager to learn new things, but I never had enough time or energy to pursue them when I was busy raising my daughter and working as a writer. Now that I'm an almost empty nester, I have more freedom and flexibility to explore different interests and passions.

The Next New Thing (to Me) is my way of documenting and sharing my new experiences with you. I hope to inspire you to try something new, whether it's gardening, writing, traveling, exercising, or anything else that sparks your curiosity. You're never too old to learn something new or to have fun! And, you’re most definitely never too old to grow.

By subscribing, you'll get articles about my latest projects, challenges, and achievements. You'll also get tips and tricks for living life in the golden years, such as how to stay healthy, happy, and connected. And, I'll share some of the resources and tools that I use to learn and grow.

I'm always open to suggestions and feedback, so feel free to leave a comment or contact me anytime. I'd love to hear from you and learn about your next new thing!
