I can’t remember when the last time I really sat down to write. Over the past 2 years there has been so much going on in my life and around me that it has been too overwhelming to easily put into words. I just have too many random thoughts in my head that I always think would seem incoherent if I wrote them down. 

I miss writing. I think it is time to start again. 

This week symbolizes another change for me and Eddie. Nathan is headed off to college and when Adrianna leaves the following week we will officially be empty nesters. Alexa is thriving in her job and life in South Florida after going to college and not coming back. For over 23 years, we have had kids in the house. It will certainly be a change and the house all of a sudden seems so big. 

Soon to be empty nesters

I am happy for the kids and very proud of all of them. They have grown up to be kind, caring, amazing human beings who I love with all of my heart. I know they will all do well in life, and for that I am grateful. I pray for them daily and love watching them spread their wings and fly. 

As Eddie and I come up on the anniversary of our first date 28 years ago, I feel so blessed to have him as my partner in life. It is so cool to be with someone who completely gets me and puts up with all of my shenanigans. 💗

As I reflect on this week, I think about all the things I love about being a mother and a wife and how blessed I truly am. 

I know I will have tears in my eyes this weekend as we turn around to drive home after leaving Nathan at college, but they will be just as much tears of joy as tears of sadness knowing I will miss his humor and smile. I will be comforted knowing I still get to spend a few more days with Adrianna. 😄
