Back in June 2015 we put our house we had been living in for the past seven years up for sale.
We had been wanting to move for a while and just finally made the decision to do it. We needed more space. It was such a pain trying to get the house decluttered and cleaned to be able to show at a moments notice. There were many days/nights we drove around Troy. I mean y'all, there are only so many places you can drive around Troy, it got old real quick. But hey, if it meant someone was going to buy our house then I would drive for hours. In the meantime we had been looking at a few houses that we liked. We finally put in an offer on another house contingent on the sale of our house. It took our house around three months and it finally sold. Those three months seemed like forever!
The kids loved the U-Haul. Jack wanted to drive it and Alice just had to check things out.
We said goodbye to our old house that held so many precious memories. This is the first house we purchased as a married couple, the first house we brought both of our kids home to and the only house that my mom was here to see and enjoy. Lots of memories. It was a little sad and exciting all at the same time.
We are absolutely loving our new house. We have so much more room and we love our new location. It's all been a little bittersweet. It has been so hard going through all of this without my mama here. There have been so many times I watned to pick up the phone to tell her what is going on or to ask her what I should do. She would absolutely love our new house! The new house is still a work in progress. It's hard to get things done with two little ones constantly needing and wanting your attention. We are definitely more settled but still have lots to do. I just have to say I never plan to move again, moving is for the birds.
Here is a little comparison photo. The photo on the left is us in 2008 when we bought our first house, the picture on the left is when we bought our new house in 2015. Just a little bit has changed in those few years!! I am so excited to watch my family grow in our new home for many years to come!! I am blessed!!
