Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!
 

As you sit in the simmer of your life and work on things for the next version of you, one of the areas you may want to begin to consider is how you want your home to look in the empty nest years. You may start dreaming about this early and make changes over time – or all at once if that is how you roll. 

Is your home set up to accommodate those dreams of yours?  If not, why not begin making some changes now?

My guest, today, April Force Pardoe, is your Designer Bestie. April has fantastic suggestions in this episode where she also shares impactful tips and tricks with us. She is a ball of energy, and I can’t wait for you to hear this episode.
