Change is coming – one week away

This blog began in 2010 as a helpful tool and tip resource for others moving to Honolulu (or anywhere new) to find a local resident’s grocery store, a home, three mattresses, and other useful places because I experienced challenges initially.

Then, in 2012 I documented my extraordinary life as an expatriate in Abu Dhabi, UAE and embraced the life of an expat mom. Fast-forward to 2015, when our eldest daughter secured her place in the world as a gainfully employed, independent young woman and our youngest daughter graduated from high school, repatriated to So. Cal. and catapulted me into the odd-day-chronicled rarified atmosphere of Empty Nester.

Next week, my status changes again. Our youngest daughter will begin the next chapter of her life living in our home in Missouri. This means changes for my HH, her and me in 2019. Does that make me a Boomerang Momma Bird?

My emotions and thoughts are swirling around in my head and my heart. I look forward to “the new” for us both/all.

The amazing life I have welcomes change at every season. The adventures will certainly continue and will most definitely include touches of a twenty-three-year-old’s joyous heart.

I love my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free, please), and laughing. My mantra is HAVE FUN EVERYDAY. I am grateful, blessed and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I love to share my FUN life.
