Today we begin the big move to leave this house and start life in our new home. I am feeling quite sad about leaving this house that we’ve lived in for almost our entire married lives. All our babies were brought home here and while I look forward to seeing them grow in our new place, it is always so sad to say goodbye. I hope you don’t mind me sharing some of my favorite parts about this house:
I’ll miss the beautiful morning light in our oldest son’s bedroom, no matter what the paint color,
the oak tree that towers over our backyard, beautiful in any light,
the scented geraniums blooming outside our dining room window,
the small patch of wildness in our yard, perfect for berry picking,
our climbing trees,
our kitchen. Our funky, too small for more than one person galley kitchen,
our serene bathroom,
the many projects we did, including tearing out the ceiling and re-insulating the family room,
then painting it and getting the artwork just right.
I’ll miss finding boys in homemade pants under the apple tree telling secrets,
our rag tag, pell mell, mish mash group of raised beds,
the many, many hours spent fireside,
this corner. This little artwork/play corner.
And memories of all the parties we’ve hosted. I’m going to miss it all!
However, on to new beginnings!
