Adventures of an empty nester mom

My Thanksgiving week “to do” list:

This year we will celebrate Thanksgiving in our gorgeous new apartment, together, and with full hearts. Here’s my “to do” list for the week:

  1. Watch Mark dry rub brine the turkey
  2.  Think about the dishes I’ll use
  3. Count my blessings
  4. Let go of anything I cannot control
  5. Practice kindness and patience
  6. Bake two pumpkin pies
  7. Listen to my heart
  8. Be grateful and thankful for all I have
  9. Breathe
  10. Enjoy every moment and have FUN

I’ll certainly miss having our Emily here with us; she’ll be with her Ohana in Hawaii, not eating turkey.

What’s on your list?

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.
