Do you know where your favorite lipstick is? For the first time in years I can say with confidence that mine is exactly where I last put it. Now that my nest is newly emptied, no teen has just swiped it and then left it in her purse/friend's car/friend-of-a-friend's car. I miss my college kids terribly. But it makes me feel better to celebrate the little ways life is easier without them underfoot.
