Meet Tyanna and Her Two Little ‘Piggies’

I recently asked which glasses you liked better
on me, the heavy looking black frames
or the lighter blue frames.

Although the overwhelming majority of women chose the blue, which I also love, I’ve been wearing the black frames for now since I wanted a change.

The mother of a 21-year-old son in college, Tyanna remarried seven months ago, after being single for 17 years. Here is her email:

“I first thought the black, then I gave them a closer, thoughtful look and decided on the blue. But it’s really about you. Do you like the look? Does it fit who you are? Own the look, then truly you can wear it. I know this isn’t always true, but in this case, I believe it is.

“My Granny Is A Pin-Up Girl”

Sandra Wilson embodies the word “reinvention,” in more ways than one.

She went from being a cosmetologist to a middle school English teacher, and then added “pin-up” model and magazine owner to her resume when she was almost fifty. Between everything, she raised two daughters, trained for and participated in a triathlon and didn’t let a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis stop her. Sandra tells FOF about her motivations and accomplishments.

How old are you?

I just turned 53.

Where do you live?

Richmond, VA, for the past six years.

Married? Children?

I am divorced, have two daughters, 32
and 33, and three grandchildren.
