Why We Started Boom2Bloom

Sandra Watson and Janet Olson owners of Boom2BloomMidlife Wishes

Forty-five years ago we were two school girls embarking on the journey of 5th grade at a small rural grade school in central Wisconsin. We met on the playground and immediately became best friends. Our friendship has survived even though there were years of little to no interaction due to the responsibilities of marriage, raising kids, careers, divorce, remarriage and life in general.

Fast-forward to 2017. After many insightful and lengthy phone conversations about our own midlife experience we felt it might be rewarding to connect with others in the same boat. We designed this website as a collaborative meeting ground to share our life experiences with each other and all of you.

We hope Boom2Bloom inspires, motivates, and normalizes the journey of midlife for you. Our goal is to provide a sense of connection and content that brings a smile, triggers a similar memory, and perhaps brings joy and laughter.
