Empty-Nesters Weekend Getaway!

A couple weeks ago our good friends Doug and Diane asked us to go with them to their time-share in Pacific Grove and to the Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament (and yes, we saw Tiger, Phil, Tony Romo, Aaron Rodgers and Josh Duhamel, et al.; and yes, I get soooo excited about stuff like that.)

But my larger point here is that we had a wonderful time ~ eating, shopping, gallery-browsing, walking, and just plain ol’ hangin’ out, doing a lot of nothing. And it was delightful…

I wanted to share a few pics of our getaway. And here’s to a wonderful weekend to you!

Friday night…with husband and friends…Pacific Ocean as the backdrop. If you think that’s coffee in that cup I’m holding, you’re crazy!

Love the restaurant window. Love that creeping-fig vine that covers every inch of the building.

About Me

It's true! Despite playing defense virtually all my life against the onslaught of this sometimes-ugly aging process, it...has...arrived! I naively thought I would escape cellulite (the Cottage Cheese) and crow's feet (the Crepe Paper). But I didn't! And why didn't anyone tell me about this emotional roller-coaster that comes with being an Empty-Nester?! My name is Jodie Barringer Myers. I'm a 54-year-old Friday/chardonnay/ hydrangea-loving wife/mom/court reporter living in Sacramento (Gold River!), California. Writing is cathartic for me. And because I look to find humor and humility among the rubble that is my now very peri-menopausal self, I'm hopeful that you will laugh, cry, learn, enjoy and, most of all, relate to what I have to say. After all, we're all in this together, right?
