ENA Launch Party

Oct 1, 2011

Official Launch Party Took Place!   Saturday, October 1, 2011

Thanks to everyone (in person and virtually) for sharing this exciting launch of Empty Nester Adventures with us.  Family, friends and neighbors celebrated with us at our home as we enjoyed desserts together and shared great insights for future topics!  We so appreciated everyone’s support in joining us.   Our middle son Matthew was there for the festivities as he lives in the Denver area.  Our other boys live away.  We are so grateful to our three sons for their incredible encouragement and support as we have stepped into this empty nester adventure.  Hopefully we won’t embarrass you too much.





  1. Kevin and Lisa Gouran /

    We’re coming. The site looks wonderful.

  2. Jayne Scales /

    We had boomerang kids last year…and now they are off again! We have had AFS Exchange students other years, too…but none this year…I think your site will be of great use to us.

    Congratulations on the launch of Empty Nester Adventures! Although I’m still quite a ways off from being an empty nester myself, all this recent Empty Nester hype has really gotten me pumped to be an empty nester one day. Congrats!

    Congratulations on your launch!! Even though I’m not quite old enough to be a true “empty-nester” I’d like to think I still count, since I hold down the Manley Family fort here in Colorado by myself!
