Founded by nester Alexis M. Bordeaux, My Empty Nest Joy is your online source for all things GenX, Midlife, and thriving in your empty nest years. The platform was created to encourage dialogue on those pivotal life changes and experiences that shape our who and why.

Readers are encouraged to engage with this community like they would an old friend, with whom they share similar challenges, goals, and triumphs.

Alexis launched My Empty Nest Joy as a personal blog, journaling the many ups and downs of life as an empty nester navigating empty nest syndrome, all while finding ways to balance the hormonal changes occurring in perimenopause. What was supposed to be a personal electronic journal, is now an outlet for women to share their journey through life as “women of a certain age.”

As the name suggests, this space is your empty nest joy. Your corner of the internet for learning and connecting with a community of women who are often left out of many critical life-changing conversations.
