Greetings from our ‘Happy Place’!

Welcome, Empty Nester. Your nest may be empty now… or soon to be. It can be a time of sadness for many as they watch the young ones fly away. Others may find that they are not finding the nest as empty as they thought it would be at this point in their lives. Or they are finding grandchildren arriving in their world. All of these changes make for an emotional transition – from one phase of life to another.

If you are like us, you are not ready to pack it up just yet. You know that there is more going on in the world and you want to be a part of it. We feel the same. Join us as we seek out the next chapter in our lives!
