Hello and welcome everyone!
I am an empty nester. I can’t believe I have reached this stage in my life. Our kids are all grown and have flown the nest. Our youngest daughter just graduated from college. Over the years, our three daughters have come and gone. They’ve gone away to college, come home for summers, moved back home before grad school, or before transitioning to a new job. At the time I am writing this, our oldest and youngest daughters are living back at home. They are each in a transitional time in their lives and have moved home short term. I plan to enjoy every last day I have with them before they each leave for a different part of the country this summer. Time truly does go by quickly.
Being an empty nester means a life full of transition for us too. We need to figure out what to do now that our kids are gone and living their own lives. My hope is to make the most of this new stage of life and focus on trying to be a better me.
Part of being a better me means taking better care of myself. That includes taking care of my skin. I am excited to be a founding Independent Beauty Advisor for Willing Beauty. Because what goes on your skin goes into your skin, Willing Beauty is committed to developing clean products that avoid ingredients linked to harmful health and environmental effects. In addition our HY+5 Complex™ is the cornerstone of our age-defying regimen and is designed to defend against environmental aggressors that your skin faces daily (UVA/UVB rays, pollution, a harsh climate) that can lead to lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.
Along with being a mom to three amazing women, I am a school based Occupational Therapist and I’ve been married for 31 years to the man I met when I was 18. We did the best we could to give our girls foundational roots to build their lives on and wings to fly so they can find a life that makes them happy. I invite you along with me as I explore the future as an empty nester. We’ve only just begun…..again!
