It's Been A While!

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!!!!!
