Hi, my name is Maria, thank you for ‘popping in’ to find out a bit more about me!
I think it's bizarre that women beyond 40 are expected to gracefully bow out. At a time of life when women are juggling kids, grandchildren, pets, home, work and ageing parents. We do all this at a time when our hormones are all kinds of crazy! We really should be celebrating our fabulousness!
So, I got started on writing a lifestyle blog for women over 40 that concentrates on getting the best from our midlives.
Passion fruit, paws and peonies is an English lifestyle blog for midlife women
All posts are written in an honest, optimistic, compassionate way and sometimes my tongue is in my cheek.
This is really a family affair with all of us sharing photography and so many interests. My husband has become an enthusiastic fashion photographer who keeps his camera shy wife (yes, that's me) happy and confident. My grown kids are always finding great bars and restaurants. Their love and support is endless and priceless.
I hope you’ll find my blog to be inspirational, useful and that you come and visit here often, because life is too short to eat a bad meal, stay somewhere grim, wear something unflattering or feel alone when midlife shakes you up.

We are all foodies. So, whether we find brilliant food at a swish Michelin restaurant in the city or the best gelato made from a secret family recipe deep in a mountain village, this is where we share it with you. Foodie is where I’ll share only the best restaurants, cafes and food markets we can find!
As a family we ALL love to cook. Some of the recipes become treasured and well used. Cook is where you can find these, along with new exciting favourites I simply have to share. I hope you give our much loved recipes a go!
