A little about me and this blog.

I initially started this back in 2008 when I was in between jobs. Back then my girls were in high school and I was looking ahead to an empty nest. The blog name comes from, of course, the almost-daily repetition of the phrase while trying to keep track of the girls on their various teenage outings.

Today, as a 50-something mom and wife, I am officially in the empty nest phase and have completely embraced it! That phrase is almost obsolete in our family. Now I’m at the stage where I don’t have to keep track of where everyone is. It’s more about staying in touch, staying close—whether that’s with my two daughters, my husband, my siblings, or my friends. It’s also about learning new things and being open to the possibilities that are ahead … for all of us! Because it’s never too late to try something new, to travel a different path—embrace change and get out of our comfort zones a little.

Life is a journey, and there are plenty of chances help each other along the way. If we stay connected to others, we don’t have to go it alone. And that’s what this blog is ultimately about. By sharing my life with you here, I hope you’ll be encouraged; maybe you’ll laugh with me a little, or even cry. Let’s connect over this crazy, wonderful, quirky, inspiring, mundane, frustrating, beautiful thing called life.
