Welcome and thank you for stopping by! Two years ago, my husband and I became empty nesters after our youngest daughter, Megan, left for college. Prior to that, we were a very busy family of 4 with our eldest daughter, Erin. Granting that we had only two kids, the house was still alive with their friends coming and going constantly. Our days were also filled with their school and church events.
When the youngest finally left, it hit me like a punch in the stomach. I literally could not breathe! I felt like a part of me was lost! I lost my identity! I was no longer a mother; even worse, I felt like I was not a wife either. I contemplated seeking professional help. I hesitated. Instead, I did what I do best. Talk about it. I talked about my feelings with my husband, my sister, and my friends. That did the trick! I have now recovered from that initial shock into empty nesting. I have embraced this new life and I am enjoying it to the fullest.
This blog was born from my need to be busy; to occupy my mind with things I love to do, or not so love to do:-) I hope it helps you get through some rough patches in empty nesting. Please visit often.
I would love to be your virtual friend!
