Bittersweet goodbye, house!







We're on the last few days at our old house, and it's been a bittersweet week for this pregnant mama. Although these pics aren't really realistic in comparison to what our house looked like 99% of the time we lived here, I still wanted to post them on the blog for posterity's sake. I should have taken some before we cleaned up! Oh well.

I'm sad to be leaving such a sweet house & a truly great neighborhood. This house is where we moved into after we got married. It's where we spent the first 3 years of our marriage. It's the home we brought our first baby home to. It's where she learned to crawl, and talk, and eat solid foods, and developed the personality we know & love so much. 

We put lots of labor and love into making this house a home, and it's sad to leave all of that behind. But it's also good to know that we left a place better than we found it, like we're doing something to preserve the character & integrity of this  house, hoping that many owners in the future will get to enjoy what we improved on and appreciate it.

Plus moving to a new house means we have a whole new list of projects and possibilities facing us in the future! Don't worry, there will be plenty of home improvement posts still to come.

I know in my head that we have a new house, and we're getting there Friday - Friday! - but at the moment it's still hard to envision living a different house, let alone a different city. As a big creature of habit, it's hard to see the future with a change as big as this one feels to me. I'm sure in a year it will feel like we've been there forever but now it's just this big question mark at the end of the week. 

Little house, thank you for all you've done for us. I'm sure when we are back in Lincoln we will drive by and reminisce for many years to come, but for now we have to say goodbye. Treat your new owners well and try not to forget us (or maybe do try to forget all those times we spilled food & made you messy, if you want to...haha.) We won't forget you!

love,
your owners for 48 more hours
