Happy Goodbye

This blog begins with a move.

After almost ten years in our beloved first home, we decided to put it on the market.  When we initially built in 2005, we were just a family of three (mom, dad, and a 15 month old baby who didn’t take up a lot of space).  Having been told that most people only stay in their first home about five years, we chose one of the smaller models in our neighborhood: a modest 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath that seemed the perfect fit for our little family.  We relished in the things we had not before had: a guest bedroom, a garage, a decent size backyard.  We even had closets with NOTHING in them!  (This is a glorious feeling, by the way.  If you ever happen upon this opportunity, I highly encourage you to take the time to stare at the nothingness.  Step into the closet, turn all the way around, and enjoy the sparsity.  Because it will NEVER ever happen again.  Especially if you have kids.)
