My husband and I are empty nesters. Our only child has been off at college for two years. I can't lie ... the adjustment was not easy but we survived and have grown to love it!
One of my closest friends asked me the other day, "How did you reconnect after he left?" I was stumped. I had no clue. Her question made me start thinking, and I couldn't come up with one specific event or activity. I think it was a series of small, uneventful connections - starting with dinner every night. We make a point to sit down and eat dinner together every night. Most evenings, we are at the coffee table watching Jeopardy but we are together. He's the cook in the family so I'm in charge of setting the table and cleaning up. The coffee table is the perfect size for two Hen House quilted chargers, two coordinating napkins, two plates and two glasses of wine!
There is no such thing as an ugly table (even the coffee table) if it is set with Hen House Linens!
