Leslie Age Defying Makeover Photo

Greetings Beautiful Family and Friends!

Happy Summer to you! I trust that you and your beautiful families are doing well! This posting of Leslie’s Lane will be for July/August! I trust that is okay! I have been on a little hiatus for the summer! I’ve been traveling a great deal and trying to rest a great deal!  But I am now up and at it!  I trust that you and others that you know find this information to be educational, inspirational and empowering. Because I have been vacationing much of the summer, you will find this posting to be very brief. However, I would encourage you to go back and take a look at the last several months of postings. You will see that much of what I write is what’s known as “evergreen”. That is…… a lot of what you go back and look over is still relevant. Thanks so much and enjoy your week!
