A Goodbye to Our House

In just two days, we’ll be leaving this little house, our home for the past six (almost seven) years, and though we are excited to move on, I can’t help but think back on all the wonderful things this space has brought us.  We got engaged here!  Brought home a pup, found out we were having a baby, grew our first garden, threw lots of BBQs, put up Christmas trees, cooked a million dinners, watched countless Rockies games, not to mention all the projects!  Pavers, sod and rocks in the front yard, garden boxes, a retaining wall, plants, flowers, a new garage, a deck, a sprinkler system and a new fence in the backyard.  Walls torn down and rooms repainted and new counter tops, appliances, a sink and a tile backsplash inside.  Snowstorms and rainstorms and stiflingly hot days without air conditioning and through it all, this 114 year old house has stood and kept us safe.  I’m so grateful for all the years we’ve spent here ♥

We have chosen not to remember the skunks or the cracks or the dirty alleyway or the way doors sometimes shut and sometimes don’t depending on the weather 😛

  1. We have shared some wonderful times in that little house. I’m going to miss it too. But we’ll be making lots of new memories in your new 114 year old house. Can’t wait!
