Thanks for the memories...

On January 31st we turned over the keys to our home to it's new owners.  It was bittersweet to say the least.  We are looking forward to starting a fresh chapter in our new home (closing on April 22) but after nearly seven years in our townhouse it was sad to say goodbye.

We moved in as newlyweds with a puppy and moved out as a mom and dad with a toddler and a "teen aged" dog.  We celebrated seven Christmases, hosted seven Pre-Thanksgivings, one real Thanksgiving, we barbecued in the summer...and in the winter, we hosted dinner parties to celebrate big things and little things--like a Wednesday night, we've hidden Easter eggs, we made friends with our neighbors and helped each other dig out from two blizzards.  Best of all, it was the home that kept us warm, dry and safe for seven years and it was Adam's first home.  













We'll miss you Mckenna Way, but we thank you for the memories....

Congratulations on your new home!! I can remember a similar post I wrote back in 2008 when we said goodbye to our first home. Can't wait to see pictures once you're settled in. Hope we can get together since I hear you'll be close by. :)

Congrats Gribbles! I'm checking on the blog today and see this post. Made me think of the snowstorm we sledded down Jowett Ct. hill. A lot of nice memories being your neighbor :-) Hopefully someday soon we'll have a Han/Gribble reunion. Happy belated new year!!! Leesh
