Home {Sweet} Home

Day 30

Letting Go

 Today, I am filled with excitement, nerves and sadness. It is the last day in our home. This is why I haven't been blogging the last few weeks. Between packing, potty training and a 2 month old I have had next to no time for anything extra.
When we put our home up for sale, it was a quick and easy decision. We knew we wanted more open space and a bigger backyard now that our family was growing. What I didn't expect were the emotions that would come with selling our home and that it was possible to sell so fast we barely got a chance to realize what selling this house meant to us.
This was our first house that over the last 3 years we built into a home. We had our first child here and watched him learn to walk and talk. We got married here and grew our family for four here. We put a lot of time and love into updating this home making it ours. There were many laughs shared and many tears shed. SO many memories were made in this home that will never be forgotten.
Now it is time to let go. It is time for us to move onto a new chapter in our family's life, time for us to grow and enjoy what will come in the future. It is time for us to build a new house into our home. Into a place where we find comfort in at the end of a long day and into a place to make many new memories in. As my husband says: It's time to move onto bigger and better things.
I will always love and cherish our first home and I will embrace every moment we have left in it. I will say goodbye, shed a tear {or 2}, let go, and look toward a new our new home.


  1. It will be a roller coaster no doubt this weekend. I wish you all the best and I can't wait for the new memories you will make in your beautiful house! :)

  2. It's hard. We just moved and luckily had the time between buying our new one and selling our other to get really sick and tired of it. Probably because of all the preparations we did and staging and painting and such, we had been there so many times to say goodbye by the end that we didn't even cry. But it was still hard to grasp that our home is someone else's. I'm sure you will get there with the new one and hope you love it thoroughly, even if you still miss the old. <3

  3. Well, it's now been a while, and hopefully the transition went ok!
