There’s no bun in a Dayton realtor’s oven and no birds chirping in her nest.
That, it seems, was more than enough reason for a photo shoot.
Vicky Piper and her husband Jeff have grabbed attention from the Today show, Good Morning America, Buzzfeed and other media outlets for a viral photo of them holding an empty nest with a black chalkboard reading “Empty Nest, August 2018.”
The Springboro couple married 25 years according to media reports celebrated their last kid leaving the nest for college with a series of photos posted to Facebook.
With the photos, The HER Realtor wrote:
“20 years ago we didn’t have gender 💝💙reveal parties, portraits in beautiful fields with baby shoes to announce a pregnancy. Nor did we have baby photos on a blanket with a circle ⭕️ around a number showing how old they were. We drove 🚗our babies to Sears or Olan Mills to get their photo📸😂😂!!!!!
So in honor of our next chapter
...here you go 😂🤣😛😜”
Thousands have left comments in Piper’s post.
“Looove it! Gonna steal it in just a couple of years,” one woman commented on Piper’s post.
“When all the kids are finally out I’m going to take pics of you and the dogs like this hahaha,” another woman wrote, tagging her husband with her comment.
“We thought we were free too,” yet another woman wrote. “Hate to put a damper on it .....then our parents started moving in.”
