Adventures of an empty nester mom

Keep friends close, informed, and in touch

Friends are the family we choose for ourselves. I call them Framily.

As I begin another immediate family move, I am grateful for the love and support of my friends. I’ve heard nice comments, supportive messages, and lovely and generous invitations. Friends add richness and joy to my life. In this new place, I have to find them. As I like to say, “People are faces until they’re your friends.”

Another great resource for change, moving, exploring is social media: A way I can ‘meet’ new friends, reconnect with people from my past, and find new places in the city. Since I haven’t lived here since 1980, it’s all new to me.

Sharing, venting, exploring is better/easier with good, trusting friends.

Why having a ‘vent buddy’ is important to your health

Let the new adventure begin: this weekend we’re hunting for a new apartment, a place to gather and create.

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.
