Fun in the Empty Nest

Fun in the Empty Nest

By Natalie Caine, M.A.
NABBW’s Empty Nest Expert

Parents ask me what I do for fun since they are gathering new ideas for themselves. Here\’s a short list:

Read about chefs, meet them and eat at their restaurants (do you know who is in the photo I captured?)

Start my day with black coffee and pruning my organic veggie and flower garden

Read novels and newspapers

Movies with chocolate covered pretzels for snack

Out to dinner with hubby so we can catch up and laugh away from home

Day trips on the road




Cooking Time with friends, anywhere, anytime


Farmer\’s market everywhere and anywhere, even when I travel for work

Eat outside


My work is actually fun…don\’t hate me



Just started, literally just tried, watercolors…maybe that will be fun, maybe not.



Planning trips and hanging with the locals

Connecting with people in my neighborhood at local café or walking


Remembering my night dreams and talking with my friends about “What did that mean?”

Decorating my home by moving things around every season, de-cluttering, adding new beauty if needed

Organizing my office and home, relief and fun

My cat Sophie

Sunrise out my window

Sunset walks on the hill

Walking around a lake, early morning when the mist rises

Wow, just noticed the thought of my daughter came now and not earlier. I adore her. Time together is fun because we have so much in common.

Well off to a meeting. Add what you like to do so others can get inspired.

Lists keep growing and get deleted when you allow yourself to be open and not always listen to the voice in your head that has repeatedly steered you wrong, meaning, hasn\’t allowed you to be and do. Do you know that voice in your head very well?

Change is inevitable. Get Ready. Get Support. Life transitions need a hand to hold.

Invite Natalie to speak in your community or bring her workshop to you.

Natalie Caine is the founder of Empty Nest Support Services. When her daughter was a senior in high school, she realized that as a soon-to-be “empty nester,” she would be undergoing a major life shift. Not wanting to confront this transition alone nor have her many friends face this abyss without strong support, she created a support services group, which quickly grew into a new career and an exciting full-time business.
