Welcome to my blog. I hope you will visit often as I share how my life has become quieter, more simple and somewhat introspective. I will talk about life with my husband of almost 30 years, my college age daughters, who move in and move out and my cute 1 year old puppy. I'll talk about the books I love, my garden and cooking as healthy as I can. I'll discuss reality TV because I am addicted to the crazy housewives and the bachelors/bachelorettes. And sports - I love my Detroit and Big Ten teams!
I recently left a stressful job and have spent the past few months finding the new normal for me. My daughters are living at college, so my husband and I became empty nesters for the first time. As much as I worried about how it would be, I have to say it was an easy transition. We enjoyed the freedom and the calm. It felt like we were dating again. Of course we missed the girls, but they were both an hour or less away, so we could visit often.
While my husband is at work, it is the puppy and I every day - going for walks, drinking tea, reading and working in my flower garden. A simple, calm life. Just like I need it to be :)Vicki
