Fall Break

As an empty nester, I try to make a big deal when one of my kids comes home for the weekend. Lucky for me, two of them live in NYC, so when we are joined by a third or a fourth, it's cause for a bit of a celebration. This weekend, the youngest came home ...

I haven't written in a few weeks, because on top of travel, this is my BUSY season, as my "real" job is helping high school seniors with their college application essays. But that doesn't mean I didn't squeeze in some serious summer emptynestering. Tom and I ...
