Monday marked 2 years since we bought this house:
It looked like this 2 years ago, but we knew it had potential!
It got a facelift before we moved in.
There are times I REALLY miss my old house.
And my old neighborhood. It's only about 5 minutes away, so I drive by it often.
I miss my big backyard and the pool!
Blue misses the pool too!
I didn't think I would ever miss "height"? But I miss the height of the ceilings compared to the 8 foot ones we have now.
I miss my farmhouse sink and the colander lamp Marcus made for me.
And my guest bathroom with my in-laws old dresser in it.
We put our house on the market because this happened:
Yay! A Baby!
We waited a LONG time for this baby and we didn't want to miss out on her life.
Marcus is a fireman and had a business on the side. And I was working part time.
We chose time with our family instead of the house we loved. Marcus being away extra days wasn't worth it to us. So he sold his business and we sold our house for something less expensive.
He has not missed ONE doctor's appointment since Katie's been born.
Katie and Marcus napped together for her first year of life.
And we have most of our meals together:
Our closets and yard are smaller, but so is our mortgage!
Sometimes I feel like I sacrificed something, but that's just ridiculous! It's all about perspective, I am just thankful for shelter. Most of the people in the world don't even have a home.
We are blessed!
We moved in when Katie was about a week old.
And we have LOTS of great memories in this house!
The 8 foot ceilings haven't bothered her one bit!
