Adventures of an empty nester mom

Here’s what YES looks like

When I’m invited, I usually say, “Yes!” To be a YES for outings, events, trips etc. means I meet new people, eat new foods, experience new things. Last night was no exception.

My friend Kathleen invited me to go out with her, and I said, “YES.” Surprised that I didn’t Google the band we were to see,  she shared her enthusiasm and told me how she came upon them.

After a delicious BBQ dinner, we parked and walked into an establishment established in 1818. The warm-up band definitely warmed up the crowd. The busy bartenders poured tap beer and cocktails as fast as the orders came in.  Once the headliners started,  the patrons screamed, jumped to their feet, and sang out the words to all the songs.  The lead singer is the drummer. He has a beautiful singing (and shouting) voice, as well as talented drum-stick-spinning fingers. They’ve been singing together for over two decades.

A very good time was had by all. A “Yes” opens doors, hearts, and minds.  I am their newest fan.

What will you say “Yes” to today?



This is us with two of the four band members.

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.
