Fare Thee Well

When we moved into this house three and a half years ago we were a newly married couple with a cat.  We are now moving out with a cat, dog, two little girls, and lots of beautiful memories.  Although I'm over the moon about our new home I can't help but to feel a bit nostalgic about the momentous days we experienced in this house as well as the seemingly insignificant days in between.  We brought Lady home for the first time in this house, we brought Mallory home to this house for the first time and most recently baby Jillian came home to this house for the first time!  We've had glorious times in this home where we celebrated birthdays, barbeque's, holidays, baptisms, and even the everyday mundane family time; where we played hide and seek with Mallory in the living room, family dinners in the kitchen, snuggling on the couch together to watch a movie in the family room, summer nights on our patio....all the days gone by I will cherish in big and small ways! 

As excited as we are about our "forever" home there's no denying that this will always be "our first home".  Mallory and Jillian are too young to have any memories of this place but we will no doubt share with them all stories and let them know this is the home where it all started...the home where our family began!

The day we brought Lady home! 

The first week we brought Mallory home! 

Jillian's first week home!
