Greetings….Allow me to introduce myself! I’m Kim, a single mom of 2 daughters (20 and 18 years old), and a recent empty nester! For the 1st time in 20 years, I don’t have to be a mom taxi, referee, drill sergeant or secretary (well sometimes I’m still the occasional proof reader).
I used to say I couldn’t WAIT to be an empty nester, being a single mom for 20 years has been hectic and hard, now that the time is here….crickets! Like most new empty nesters, I’ve asked my self over and over, “what I will do with myself with all this free time?” FREE TIME?! What is that?! Something I’m certainly not used to!
I do have a day job, so that keeps me busy during the day, but my evenings, which use to consist of driving to games/practices, homework and whipping up meals, are suddenly a lot slower. As much as being a busy mom is exhausting, it’s easy to miss the hectic pace.
Can a mom over 40 (50 is fastly approaching) start a blog? What will I discuss? Who will find it interesting? Questions I’ve asked myself and I’m sure has caused me to delay starting this process. I think I’m a pretty interesting person! I know I’m a cool mom, so why not! Why not show other single moms (and single dads), or any person who due to a life change, may not be sure what the next step is or may want to reinvent their life? If I can do it, they can too!
Over the years, my daughters and I have enjoyed road trips whenever time/finances allowed, when I was a little girl, my family would travel to visit family in Alabama every summer….so the love of travel has always been there. I’m also an avid social media user, yes like most teenagers, my daughters have blocked me from their social media pages (lol), but hey! I have my own friends, so who needs them!
Hmm….I love to travel, I love social media, let’s not forget Mother Natures gift of gray hair (hence the nickname Silver Fox). So why not combine all of the above?
Welcome to Adventures of the Silver Fox! Thank you for joining me in this new chapter in my life!
Enjoy the ride!
