About the Mom

The separation has got to start someplace….

Hi! I’m Mary Lanzavecchia, wife, home school teacher, business owner, 4-H volunteer, gardener, reader, writer, and Transitioning Mom building the stage for the next chapter in life. Anyone who has known me for any length of time will tell you I live by three axioms: my day planner, that there are no mistakes in this world,  and that, in every situation, exists a silver lining (even if tarnished.) I have two daughters, one 17 and one 14, who have been homeschooled since pre-school. They might tell you I have control issues, and I might just agree. That is why the optimistic planner in me plans to take control of my countdown journey to the days of tear-stained freedom known as “the empty nest years.” I love my children and all the gifts that have come from being a parent. And, I figure if my husband and I handle this last off ramp well, we can all move from the parent/child relationship to one of friendship with minimal tears and maximum joy.

Jump in, buckle up, and let’s enjoy this transitioning ride together!

  1. Your post “Blink” touched me deeply. You put into words what many mothers feel. I went through this transition with my daughter last year. It was a little late in coming, but she is now out of the nest and I am so very proud of her.



  2. Nice to meet you! Another SAHM counting blessings, here. Your “about” page is inspiring and I ADORE your latest “blink” post. You had me crying like a baby…it was refreshing and cleansing. Thank you! 🙂
