1. I am enjoying reading your post. It is getting to the point that I am looking forward to it and see what you will post for today. 🙂 very well written, informative and fun to read.

    1. Thank you so much Ling! It has been quite an experience – and a commitment – to write a post a day for NaBloPoMo! In December, I will go back to my more usual 1 a week! But it has taught me A LOT! Hope you will keep reading!

  2. Found this post on Pintrest! Thank you, I so agree. My youngest son got married almost three years ago, so our nest is officially empty.

    I totally get the whole phone call thing! It’s hard and yes I drop everything when they call. It’s been interesting to watch them grow in independence and hard at the same time. Both my boys call their father for advice etc far more than they do me, it’s healthy, I am thankful for it, but no one prepared my mother’s heart for it. But again, I think it is as it should be.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it! I am a bit of a newbie on Pinterest and am just getting around on it. Thanks so much for reading and commenting. Sounds like we are on similar paths!

  3. One the few advantages of the “other mother” is being accustomed to having an empty nest. With a small family, we relish the new extended tribe created by our son’s marriage. He lives in another country. The in-laws reside on another continent. Like you, it is a thrill to receive a text asking for a forgotten ingredient or advice on a thorny issue. Love can multiply among new family members. Maybe our cranberry chutney will find its way to South America. I know I could use a few tips on making the perfect Feijoada (black bean stew)!
