It’s always cool to log on the computer first thing in the morning and see that others are digging what you’re doing.
First, I was thrilled to go on my Twitter page and see that The Italy Daily (http://paper.li/GoodBlogPosts46/1318252792?edition_id=8ddff650-d99f-11e4-b0cf-002590a5ba2d) shared, in their Arts & Entertainment section, my WordPress blog about my lecture “Italian American Food Family & Community” at the Carlstadt Library, Carlstadt New Jersey: https://maryannemistretta.wordpress.com/2015/04/02/italian-american-food-family-and-community-at-carlstadt-public-library/
I immediately signed up for updates! Oh, the food on this page is to die for!
Next, I was equally as excited to see that my picture on Model Mayhem was put in the “Killer Mature Models” section: http://www.modelmayhem.com/list/3457
I dabbled in glamor modeling since my 20s. Glamor modeling means you don’t have to be super tall or super skinny. In my 20s to early 40s I modeled swimwear and lingerie — also ice skating outfits and a guitar ad.

Now at 51, I decided to put my profile up on Model Mayhem and see what kind of results I’d get. This was two days ago and I’m getting some great response already! I am so honored to be a part of Model Mayhem! My goal is to illustrate to all women that life just keeps getting better! We have no expiration dates on us (as you can see, checking out the other lovely Killer Mature Models on that link!) And to work with some awesome photographs, continuing to make great pictorial art!
So my shout outs for today are to the Italian Community and all ladies over 40! Stay busy and happy!
