Five years and counting
We closed on April 26. There was a whirlwind of emotions...wondering what in the world we just did. I was emotional about leaving our little house that we brought four children home to...the memories that we had made there. Again, the hard work that we put into it, transforming it from an old empty house into a beautifully decorated, warm and welcoming home. We planted new grass, a new tree and other plants. We painted inside and out, finished spaces by ourselves and with the help of others. IT was ours in every corner. We would spend everything we had to acquire this new house and be under construction just to finish the living space. There would be no decorating, no fixing up, no new furniture or fixtures. We just couldn't afford it.
