Gypsy

The GypsyNesters

Almost every couple has a “now what?” moment when their children leave the nest. In 2008, when David and Veronica’s youngest left the nest for college, the couple chose to look their next phase of life as a beginning instead of an ending. Rather than staying put and facing the constant reminders of empty bedrooms and backseats, they sold the nest and hit the highway. GypsyNester.com humorously chronicles their journey of discovery of the big, wonderful world, of becoming parents of adult children, and of rediscovering that fun-loving couple who fell in love all those years ago.
