This morning on the way to work, the reality set in that today is the day we are selling our "starter home". I have to be honest and admit that I got a little teary eyed thinking of all the great memories there!
We definitely started a lot of things there :) When we moved in, we had no children, no furniture, and big dreams! We moved out with two children and so much stuff that we have no clue how we got it all - LOL! I can safely say that at this point, I feel like we have far exceeded our dreams and are living a wonderful life. It is incredible to be at a comfortable point in our life, emotionally and financially, to be able to make a drastic move of this nature on short notice. As I have said before, we have been preparing and planning for it, under the assumption it would be at least a few months off . . . little did we know that it would happen this fast!
August 4, 2001 - a little over one week before move-in. Now the trees in the back ground are replaced with houses and the four trees in the yard tower over the house.
