As Empty Nesters we are facing lots of challenges, but the one thing I want you to remember is to embrace living life in the Middle. Here at Destination Midlife, we are learning to not only survive but to bloom in the Middle and embrace our new normal. While we may have Empty Nest Syndrome at first, we will learn to enjoy the phone calls from our now adult children. Children leave home and our life no longer rotates on their schedules, but our own making way for an all-new life experience. We are going to be embracing middle-aged living in a unique way that only parents get to experience. Remember we were training them their whole lives to be responsible adults, and productive citizens, now we have to mourn the sense of loss, pick ourselves up off the floor and live life to the fullest. So join me as we embrace Empty Nest Living and all things Destination Midlife.

The kid(s) are gone, now what?? Party like it’s 1990, or before, yes it’s sad, but it’s also time to stretch your wings and learn to fly again. Every day isn’t sad, in fact, there are lots of great days ahead! Enjoy the journey and enjoy the midlife living as we do here at Destination of Midlife.
Traveling without kids is now your new normal which means you will get to explore more exciting places. Join us as we travel into the middle years spending more time with our significant other and refinding ourselves. Not just as Mom and Dad, but often times husband/wife significant others and so on. But even if you are single there’s no time like the present to start planning a trip!
Do It Yourself ideas, crafts, and projects that you once enjoyed are making a comeback. Join us in our crafting adventures, because we should always enjoy what we are doing! It is also a great way to keep you from having a Midlife Crisis because you are keeping your mind and hands busy in an all-new way! A few of the things we do is craft with our Cricut Machine and of course, I’m always taking photos.
