About: Auburn

I started this blog as an experiment, an experiment to put myself out there more on the web and as a way to journal my ever-changing life. My life always seems to be in major transition. Each year I think, "Wow, this year is so different than last. At the end of it, I will stay on this path for some time." But no, it is never constant. Now, I am in the "young-single-mom transition to empty nest" phase of my little trip around the sun. I'm not yet 40 and my one-and-only child is headed off to college. What will this new phase be for me?
