Adventures of an empty nester mom

This is what love and friendship looks like

Over the Labor Day weekend, I took a road trip: I drove to St. Louis to celebrate love and friendship. I had brekky with my first friend in STL, then I witnessed two weddings of two friends’ daughters, then pool and playtime with two more friends. The only other friend I didn’t get to see was out of town. Unfortunately and regrettably,  I didn’t get to see our cousins, due to time constraints.

Welcomed as family, and knowing that the lists were limited, I remain incredibly honored and grateful to have been included at these events.

During my visit, I walked along the Katy Trail, under the enormous trees; I ran through Forest Park; I walked around the lake at Cardonolet Park; I toured the Ulysses S. Grant historic site, and drove along a stretch of historic Route 66.

Returning home, I feel refreshed and filled up. I needed to reconnect with my friends and check off a few more STL places to see from my Bucket List.

I remain grateful, thankful and honored, Kathleen, Toni, Kim, Mary & Judi. I’ll see you next time, Barb, Hillard, Mary, and Wendy.

Stay well. Stay positive. HAVE FUN EVERY DAY!

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.
