Grateful Goodbyes

Hello! Life has been a whirlwind these past few months...lots of packing, unpacking and getting settled into a familiar but temporary home while planning for our new home. As many of you can probably relate from your own experiences, moving is exciting and daunting all at the same time.

We've now become accustomed to the different daily surroundings and routines, but I often find myself thinking back on the many memories we shared in our previous home. A house that we intended to live in for only a few years turned out to be our home for eleven years. It holds once-in-a-lifetime moments that we'll cherish forever.

It was our home when we got married, welcomed our Goldendoodle and became parents. It was a place that allowed us to bring family and friends together, celebrating, playing games, eating good food and just enjoying each other's company. It was a place we shared the simple joys of life and worked through some challenges. Like most homes, it had its nuisances, but we learned to look past them or accept them. In fact, those nuisances are now a big part of what made that space home. No matter what, it was a place we were always happy to return to.

We are grateful for the time we had in our home but also grateful to be moving on.

What do you remember about your previous home(s)? I hope you choose to preserve those good times and little quirks that made the experience that much more memorable.

Until next time...enjoy making memories!
