Adventures of an empty nester mom

Do things that make you feel great!

“If you have more novel and diverse experiences today, you’re likely to feel better today AND the next day.”

Of course, travel, the best educator, and happiness-creator uplift us and garners diverse experiences. These current days, travel is achievable in a van or car (the camping way) or on feet/ bicycle, along a trail. Exploring, either way, makes me happy. Today I choose a trail.

Sorry luggage and Osprey backpack.

As a new member of the Dallas community, I have donned my mask, trail runners, and TAMU hat to find trails to walk and bike ride on where social distancing is the norm and I benefit my brain, legs, and lungs. One good outcome from one of my walks: the trail app I used featured my photo on its landing page. That’s an encouragement to walk and photograph more.

I feel so much better after a couple of hours outside, making the next stop, a grocery store, more palatable.

Stay well. Stay healthy. Stay positive.

When blue skies shine upon me, I accept that as an invitation to go outside.

I adore my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free please), and belly-laughing. My mantra is HAVE FUN EVERY DAY. I've lived in five US states and two foreign countries. I am grateful, blessed and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I enjoy sharing my creative Empty Nester life.
