- 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!
