If these Walls Could Talk… They’d say Goodbye

   

First Home

On the drive home we excitedly talked about the house that might become our new home but when I lay down at night my mind starts to think about the scariness of such a big change. Then the bittersweetness sets in as I think about the past 5 years in our house. When Chris and I bought out first home it was a very exciting time for us as we were also planning our wedding. I knew that this would not be our forever home but I have loved the 5 years we spent here making this home ours.

We have been talking about selling for a long time and finally put the house on the market when the time seemed right. Even though it is hard to say goodbye I believe things happen for a reason and if it wasn’t meant to be than it wouldn’t have sold in just 3 short weeks to the first couple who looked.  Yes, three short weeks!

I will never forget…
