Throwback Thursday.

…my first attempt* at a throwback post – because really, I couldn’t get this image

out of my head today. I’m guessing it was taken in early August 1985 (we closed on the empty lot on July 29, 1985).
What a difference 28 years makes.

We built our family in that house and have more good memories – and hundreds of photos! – than I could possibly begin to share here. Like I texted to Marc, Katie and Sara it’s “the end of a very good era.” I’m proud the house is still looking great!

*this is also my first attempt at a blogger post from my iPad and if anyone has tips and/or App suggestions to share, I welcome them – thanks!

  1. That for sale sign is depressing. It is beyond strange to think of some other family living in *our* house. Yes, it will always be our house.

  2. We didn't build our house — it was already 100 years old when we moved in in 1987 — but we certainly built our family there, and left our mark in countless ways. I can't imagine selling — or, more accurately, preparing it for sale — but I know the day will come, and I'm more open to the prospect now than I've ever been. You'll always hold those memories. Good luck! It looks like a fabulous property and house, it probably won't be on the market for long!!

  3. Your home has that well established look of stability, elegance, and grace. May the next family be as happy and successful as yours.

  4. Bittersweet I am sure…but lots of love shared within. A dwelling the next residents will be most fortunate to occupy . Sure the house will move in a flash! Cheers~

  5. so many memories indeed. it will be hard to imagine another family living there, but good karma abounds within and i think the new owners will definitely "feel the love".

  6. So many emotions! But you're happy in your new home and moving toward the next phase. I agree…another family has great juju coming into your home.

  7. Major transitions are always emotional! A new family is going to the love the place you created — and they'll make it their own somehow. XOXO
