Fluffing a empty nest….

Nothing makes your heart hurt like seeing one of your little birds fly away… Brenda and I have tried to keep ourselves busy with a little fluffing around her little nest. She has wanted to redo a few things and with Sarah and Joe moving it was time to keep busy and I was put to work keeping her BUSY! I am a little tired from it all!HEHE But I have found with all of my good byes in life the best way to get over it is start a creative project and keep your mind and hands busy.

We headed off to Big D to hang out in someone else's nest for a few days. It was good to see 2 of my favorite guys.DSC02128 We played, ate and read MANY books but nothing heals the heart like getting a hug and a wet kiss from a 11 month old….


We shopped and got lots of ideas for her new nest and went home and got busy with the fluffing! She painted a wall, redid her Mantel, decked out her many side tables and chose some new furniture and fabric to get in the coming months.


Chocolate Brown wall – so warm…..

A new and improved Living area – I think she likes it much better now.

The one thing I have learned in motherhood – you spend a lifetime of watching your children grow up and walk away….whether it is a new grade in school, move to a new town, start a family of their own.

We wouldn’t have it any other way – but it does pull at the heart strings of your heart!
