This is what we wanted, and yet, I'm nostalgic for our first house.
|Just after we moved in, 2007.|
It's where Trea proposed before we even had a key to the front door.
And after our wedding, it's where I hung the necklace I wore and where it stayed for 5 years, making me smile every time I saw it.
It's where we brought home baby Bella.
Where we made things beautiful.
Where we learned new things.
It's where we found ourselves.
We have so many memories in that house. It's the only place we've ever lived, so it feels like our entire history is there.
We shed so many tears leaving this place, but I think we made the right decision. The new house holds lots of possibilities, and I'm so excited to go for a run in our new neighborhood as soon as I recover from all the unpacking.
But a little piece of me will always miss our house in the woods. It was exactly what we needed when we needed it -- the perfect place for our beginning.
