How She Revels: Marie Esquibel

My husband and I retired and wanted a change of scene, so we packed it up.

I am recovering from foot surgery so its been tough sitting around and all I can think about is being mobile.‍

Age:55

Location: Albuquerque, NM

What’s your story?

I retired and moved from Austin Texas to Albuquerque NM, which is truly “the land of enchantment” around 4 years ago.  My husband and I retired and wanted a change of scene, so we packed it up.  NM is the perfect place to be if you love the outdoors, however Covid unfortunately disrupted our world and our plans changed.  I’ve had a lot of time to focus on myself, getting to know what really makes me happy, I’m rediscovering who I am and what I truly love.

I came across Revel in one of Katie Couric’s News Letters, I thought it would be a great place to share ideas and just connect with other women.  I came across an article about going gray which peaked my interest since I decided to let the gray grow out, one of the best decisions I ever made, talk about freedom!  I’m looking forward to getting to know the different groups and events on the site and just connecting with other woman.

What’s the best thing that’s happened to you recently?  

I gave up alcohol for a year and lost 20 lbs!

What are you most looking forward to right now? 

Looking forward to the summer, being outside, wearing sun dresses and shorts, beach, BBQ’s… I am recovering from foot surgery so its been tough sitting around and all I can think about is being mobile.

Tell us something surprising about yourself? 

I’m a Yelp Elite reviewer.  I get invited to soft openings and take pictures and write up reviews, so much fun.

Current obsession?

Reading, can’t get enough of it! Again I’ve been laid up for about 2 months with foot surgery and reading has allowed me to pass the time. It’s my getaway!
