Saying goodbye to the old

Our 'old' house, that is.

Ann Marie over at La Maison LaFortune, posted today about selling houses and how one can capture the personality of your home through photos much better than a realtor can. See her post here. It started me thinking (even more) about our home, and saying goodbye.

We moved into this house in 2006, 2 months before I had my first son. We were anticipating it was a new build, and we got to choose all the finishes, it was so much fun!
But, amongst some troubles that we had in the neighbourhood, and most people having BBD syndrome (Big Black Dog Syndrome - we have a big black dog), we craved more privacy in our home and more TREES. Being in a new subdivision doesn't provide that. In our backyard, we can count windows from about 20 different homes.

So, we went on the hunt and have found a perfect home for us, that I hope to post some pictures of in the future. Moving day is Monday, so it is kind of bittersweet that we say goodbye to this old house. Bittersweet because it is the only home our sons have ever known. Bittersweet because we are so excited to make new memories in our new house.

I thought I would share with you pictures of our current house...goodbye, house! It was nice knowing you.


  1. Lovely home! Hope the new place treats you and your family well! Can't wait to see all the decorating ideas!

  2. Well you definitely have/had a beautiful home! Can't wait to see the new one! I hope your move on Monday is a smooth one. :) And how exciting that you have a fresh slate to start decorating!

  3. Aww : ( Bye old were beautiful! I'm sure you're next home will be just as lovely. Especially with your mommy touch : ) THAT'S what makes a house a home-Love!

    Have a nice relaxing Friday evening, friend. Well, hopefully you're not packing? Lol. Have a great weekend anyway!
