Lighten Up #111: Melanie Shankle

Today we’re wrapping up our Friendship Over 40 series with New York Times bestselling author Melanie Shankle! Ahh, you guys, she’s so funny. I laughed my way through this whole thing. We chat about her 30-year friendship with her best friend Gully and how it’s hard making new friends during this stage of life, as well as the things we’re talking about with our friends, sexy things like waning eyesight and needing readers to see a menu, the joys of perimenopause, and our 40-something periods. (Women in their forties are so hot, and I do mean literally.) Between her funny memoirs, Big Mama blog, and Big Boo podcast, Melanie has kept me laughing for years, and today we’re hanging out right here, so pull up a chair, listen in, and lighten up!
