Wendy Collett writes: For me, someone who found love relatively later in life, this Valentine’s Day is a celebration of where I have been as a person and as part of a couple, the changes both of us have undergone over the last 14 years since we met and a look at what the future may hold.

Long gone are the turtleneck sweaters that I loved to wear. It has been 25 years since I started menopause and I still get those awful hot flashes; certainly not nearly as bad as they were when I first started menopause.
I could feel them coming on. It was like heat forming in the pit of my stomach. It would permeate from the inside out. I knew it would only last for a short while, but these bursts would return continuously throughout the day, at different intervals and almost always at night.
I am honored to Welcome Wendy Collett from Dry Babe as an Olga’s Secret Guest Blogger, take it away Wendy:
We women can be so many contradictory and wonderful things. We can be buttoned up
and professional as well as highly irreverent and silly; we can be a tireless support and an active helper to friends and family while also requiring quite a bit of alone time; we may also be the kind of person who can break out into dance in the middle of NYC while also inwardly cringing at the idea of doing so.
This week I went to see the show “Menopause the Musical” -The Hilarious Celebration of Women and The Change, have you seen it yet?
They covered every issue that most of us women experience when living through menopause; hot flashes, mood swings, memory problems, peeing all the time, to questions about our sexuality.
It was hysterical: we laughed throughout the entire performance. It especially hit home for my friend Wendy and I because we both have dedicated ourselves to helping woman overcome this change in life.
