      Hi Kellie,
      I went with the white monogram, just for simplicity’s sake! 🖤😃

    What a great post! You seemed to have mastered Instagram, especially with your stories. Was it easy putting yourself out there? I\’m struggling in that area.

      Nylse,
      Thank you for your kind words!
      I have SO not mastered Instagram! Stories are hard for me too! It’s tough to put myself out there and I tend to be super critical. Honestly, it’s really helped me to pray about it and ask the Lord to help me get the focus off myself. (He reminds me that being self-conscious is thinking too much about myself!) Instead, I try to focus on how I can bless and encourage others. (But it’s STILL hard!)
      xoxo Suzy

    Great article, Suzy! I was hit with a double whammy as my twins left for college a couple of months after the loss of my Dad. I cried and grieved a lot that first year of being an emptynester, especially since I had been a full-time stay-at-home Mom. I cried every time my twins left after a visit home from college as well. My husband and even our dogs were sad!😂 I will say that it does get better after the first year of college. I never have any shortage of things to do, but I still treasure the time I get with my kids, who will both graduate in May 2020.

      Andrea,
      I hear you! I still get teary when my adult kids leave after visiting home. (Although, it’s kind of nice to have the house all quiet and calm again!) I’m so sorry you had a rough time. I completely agree that it does get easier after year one! Hugs to you, and thank you for reading and commenting!

    Suzy, this is all SUCH good advice. You rocked this Q&A! I’m definitely going to bookmark and share with friends, but I’ll also share it on Facebook and pin it to a Pinterest board or two. You’ve given such wise advice. Thanks for being so thoughtful with this topic. Blessings!
