Dear House

Dear House,

You were our first house.  You have been an important part of our lives during these past 5 years. You saw us through many ups and downs in our lives.  In your walls you witnessed our celebrations, sorrows, frustrations, and so much love.  You were the home that we brought our first child home from the hospital to.

I often contemplate how many stories you have to tell about your 90 years of standing in this spot. How many other people have called you home over the years?  How many people have brought their first child home from the hospital to you?  How many important things have happened in people's lives within your walls?

Now we have to say goodbye.  Your next owners will be here in a few short hours.  They are a young couple who are engaged to be married.  You will now become a part of their story.  You will always be a part of ours, you will always be in our hearts.  You are not just a house but a home.  Goodbye my old friend.
And then we said hello to our new house.  We were greeted with this house warming gift from the sellers.  It was so sweet and thoughtful!  I got a card and a HomeGoods gift card for the buyers of our house.  Maybe if I would of had the time and energy I would of done something cute like this ;).  We just spent our 3rd night in the new house.  Most rooms are chaos right now.  The kitchen is pretty much fully unpacked and so is the dining room.  Most of Lyla's stuff is in what will be her little sister's room so that we can paint Lyla's room first.  The living room and all of the basement are just a mess right now.  We plan to get Lyla's room ready first and then the nursery.  Once the nursery is done the living room will get painted.  I will share a house tour once things get a little less chaotic around here.
