Happy Birthday Picture Retirement

Community; a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

Happy New Year everyone and Happy Birthday to Picture Retirement. The blog that we not-so-seriously began in 2017 to chronicle our retirement is officially a toddler. Malcolm and I, on the other hand, are entering our fifteenth year of retirement – not exactly toddlers. Happy for us, we still manage to find stuff to talk about (with each other) and sometimes we like to share a bit of what interest us along with snippets of our daily lives with you, so thanks for hanging around.

We appreciate our Followers and although we are all unique and different in so many ways, we find commonality and inspiration among you. Thank you for your support and encouragement. You are a lovely bunch of coconuts!

There will be a few subtle changes to the blog this year that we think you may like.

With her very first post going live at the end of January, our daughter will debut as our guest travel writer. We hope to highlight her adventures on a quarterly basis, if not more often, depending on her busy schedule. Also, Malcolm (the silent one) has been considering writing a few pieces that will lend some insight into our behind the scenes travel preparations. He has a bevy of cost saving tips and useful websites that I think our readers will find helpful.

Other than that, we will remain on our typically hap-hazard schedule, as we write about travel, hobbies, and the every day lives of two happy and contented retirees.

Cheers and Best Wishes for a Glorious 2020!!

    1. Hi Peta, we drift in and out of routine, which is comforting for a while, but shouldn’t last for long periods.The challenge is to not let contentment slide into boring… hope you made it back home and everything there is under control. Happy New Year


  1. Happy Birthday! Your blog site is a joy to read, Suzanne. I like and agree with your words “commonality and inspiration.”
    I love your idea of guest writers, your daughter and Malcolm. This will turn into a fun year for everyone!
    Especially for this little “coconut” on the West Coast.🙂


    1. Erica, travel is definitely a huge theme on our blog and our daughter learned the ropes from her father, so it seems a logical fit to include her. Just editing her first post has already inspired me to add Iceland to our list of places to visit. Malcolm, on the other hand has yet to produce a draft! Still hopeful that he will play more than a ‘supporting role’ in 2020.
