Gone

That's the status of our first house together. Gone. The movers came on Thursday to pack everything up and by noon yesterday, the house was empty. And at 4 p.m., the house was no longer ours. It feels pretty bittersweet to say the least. Beth and I always knew we wouldn't live in the house forever. It was only a little over 1500 sq. feet and would start feeling pretty small once we started having kids. We were really just tired of renting and not putting our money toward anything and that's the main reason we decided to buy a house in the first place. All of that being said, we really did like our house. We did so much to it to make it our own and to make it feel cozy. It wasn't easy shutting the door yesterday knowing that we would never go inside again.

On the other hand, we are moving to a great new house. It's nearly 2400 sq. feet and a house that we can just move into without having to change a thing. Our new neighborhood is nice and quiet and very family oriented. I think right now the hardest part is just being in limbo. All of our stuff is in storage until we close on our new house and it's still going to be a little while before actually getting everything moved in and feel a sense of normalcy. These next few months are going to be an adventure to say the least. But hopefully it'll be a fun adventure. Below is a pic of our new house:
