It has been about 7 years since my husband and I became empty nesters. I admit that I didn't handle it very well. I was so sad and empty for months! It took quite a while before I became OK with the fact that my 2 boys were out on their own and living their own lives.

Now that several years have passed.....well I can say that my husband and I are loving our life! We basically started out our marriage with a child so we never really got any time when it was just the 2 of us.

Work keeps me busy but I just enjoy my time with my husband with no distractions. I love it when the kids come to visit though. I wish they lived closer.

I am glad you are loving the empty nest life!

My only suggestion is taking up knitting or crocheting. I am trying to learn to crochet right now. It is a practical hobby.
