hey there

I’m laura


The gal behind Almost Empty Nest

I started Almost Empty Nest in 2014 after our first son graduated from high school. I knew that the next decade was going to bring many changes and I wanted a creative outlet to write about the journey and help other women who were experiencing the same life changes.

Five years later our nest is indeed “empty” of our children.

I have been asked many times if I will change the name of the website now that all my children are in college or graduate school.

I always say “no” because I don’t believe that our nests are ever really empty. They are full with the adventures of a new journey.
