We sold the house!!!

Hallelujah!!! We are so thrilled to have this one big item checked off of our list of a million things to do these days! We received a very good offer a few weeks back so we accepted it with glee! We met with the realtor and new owners today for the closing. Although we're glad to no longer have to worry about the house, turning over the keys and signing it away was bittersweet. The house holds so many wonderful memories for us, not to mention a lot of blood, sweat and tears that went into remodeling it over the past 4 years! As we walked through it the other night after we finished clearing out the last few items, I reminisced about how excited John and I were when we saw it for the first time, how thrilled we were the day we closed on it, remembering moving into our first home together after our wedding, the excitement of bringing Luke home from the hospital, sitting on the back porch and marveling every day at the beautiful view we were blessed to have, etc. I know we're moving on to bigger and better things as our circumstances are definitely changing these days, but we'll definitely miss the old place and all the wonderful memories she holds!

The view from our back deck...we're really going to miss this!

Here for the first time today. I was just going to say congratulations on the house but then I scrolled down and saw that you just had quads!
Congrats! I will have to come back and check how they are doing.

*I love that view btw!
