Empty nester, mom of two daughters, who both went to college VERY far away…and stayed after graduation. The empty nest prospect prompted the adoption of Fargo The Terrible, and an attempt to figure out the new normal. This blog will include posts about baking/cooking adventures, hobby adventures (like building stuff with wood!), living with a crazy puppy, being a back of the pack runner, gardening, and the sitcom my hubby of almost 26 years and I are becoming.

My blog title mostly refers to our strong, intelligent, independent¬†kids being away and on their own. The title was also inspired by the Dave Matthews Band lyrics, “and when the kids are old enough, we’re gonna teach them to fly.”
