our house

we closed on our home in florida yesterday.
we are so relieved to have that taken care of. 
there were a few surprises at the end that kind of left chris with unpleasant feelings. so much so that he said, "i don't think i'll ever buy another house!".
 I'm just glad its off our hands.
it's kind of bittersweet for me.

it was a great little house.

when we moved in, ellie was only a few weeks old and it was a prefect fit for our little clan.

jack was about 1 ½. 
those days of sleepless nights are a bit of a blur in my mind.
but we made that little white house on the corner 
our little white house on the corner.

so many wonderful things happened while living in that house.
fun visits from cousins and grandparents.
art shows.
family home evenings.
girls nights.
kitchen makeovers with grandpa.

i would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

it was a great little house.

Congratulations! And I'm sorry that it was such a headache for Chris. It was a cute little house and I miss the family that made it so :)

It seems that the official sale of your house is the final page turn of this chapter in your book. Those moments are always difficult and full of relief. Here's to a new house with new memories in a new state!!
