Sold

 Do you see that sign ? that's right , our house is officially sold. Exactly two weeks after we listed with a local agent , who we are just thrilled with, we got three offers in one night. How amazing is that ? super amazing. We are very happy for the new owners , we know they love this place as much as we do.

I wish them so much happiness and many happy years of cherished memories.

I was getting emotional the other day thinking back to all the years we have spent here.

When we moved here Mason was 4 and Sophie was 18 months old, just babies.
So many birthday parties with jumpy castles , so many Christmas mornings with waffle breakfasts and Thanksgiving dinners. Lots of fights and tears , laughter and fun. So many firsts like potty training, learning to ride a bike out front , learning to read and write, learning manners , getting new puppies. Everything seems to have happened right here. I have never lived in one house so long in my entire life, I will always feel attached to this house, although I am excited for the new house it will be very hard to say that final good bye.
Now we have peace , everything is going as planned , the new house kitchen is coming in early December . We will now focus on Christmas and then the mammoth task of packing and decluttering , donating and selling things will begin , but that is a task for January. For now we relax.
We will be moving on February 29th , we wanted that date because its a leap year and that's just cool , and that is the closing the new owners wanted as well, it seems meant to be .

So happy relieved and now relaxed, we are a very lucky family.

Congratulations! What a relief that must be for you!!!

Congratulations! That must be such a relief. The emotional part is a little hard. We just sold our home and moved over the Summer. Being such "home Junkies", we have strong attachments to our homes. Especially when you do all the work yourself. I had worked for years to give my home that coastal beachy feel and right after the new owners moved in they painted everything Brown. : (

Congratulations on your sale and I'm sure the purchasers are thrilled. Now you get to relax a bit and enjoy the Christmas season before you get busy with the move. And remember all those lovely memories and photos will go with you, even more than usual because you also documented the home on this blog.

Congratulations!! That is so exciting and more exciting to plan your new house and that seem to be moving along very nicely. I don't remember if I asked you this yet or not..if you plan on selling your blue floral lamp slip? I fell in love with it and would love to buy it from you if you are thinking of getting rid of it. Good luck with the move.

Your family is so blessed indeed! Saying goodbye to the old home is not easy, but the good side of that is that you are moving in to a new home. This means new opportunities for the whole family. You get to decorate again – new playroom for the kids and more. A new house is always for the betterment of the whole family, so I hope that you are having a great time in your new house.
