Somehow life has gotten away from me! My last post was February 14 and amazingly enough, 6 months have passed!!
I have been absent from blogging for a while because I've needed some new purpose. I think I have found something. My youngest child will be starting her senior year of high school in just a few weeks. My first child was born in 1985 and now, 27 years later, after raising 4 children, I am seeing an empty nest on the very near horizon.
I intend to fully enjoy this final year of "childhood" with Emily. I hope to create a host of wonderful memories. But deep inside, my mom's heart is hurting as I watch my youngest prepare to spread her wings and fly. I've been down this road three times already and frankly I dread it. It's so bittersweet.
So, I will hopefully be blogging regularly on my journey to an empty nest. There will be other stuff too but I figure if for no one else, it might just be extremely therapeutic for me.
So, ready or not, here we go!!!!!

|House Divided is not only my house but Jacob himself. It's hard to be a KU fan at K-State!!|
|Jacob's sister, Amy, made him two cookie cakes (one of his favorite deserts). One we served and this one he was able to take with him to school.|
|In addition to the cookie cakes, I made sugar cookies with buttercream frosting, yellow cupcakes with buttercream, purple velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, cake balls, and chocolate covered pretzels (another of Jacob's favorites).|
