We purchased our first home back in May of 1999. This is a picture of the drawing they had in the realtor's office! We were so excited!
|We were able to watch them build it from the ground up!|
That's me back in the day!
Yes, that's Brian - he had hair then! ;)
This picture cracks me up! I was so excited about that bath tub - no jets but that was ok!
I didn't crop out the truck because that was Brian's pick-up that we had forever - like for almost 200,000 miles I think?! There's my little Sentra in the garage - the only car we could fit in there - the car that we outgrew pretty quickly! And look at those little teeny shrubs!
Here it is today! We closed in the garage to make a playroom/bonus room. Several trees are gone (thanks to several hurricanes), the shrubs have grown and thousands of memories have been made.
Just a few weeks ago we took the steps to purchase a bigger home for our growing family and now our time here is coming to a close. I didn't think I would be too sentimental about it but I was mistaken. Don't get me wrong - we are so excited about our new space and the new memories we will make there as a family but it is still sad to be leaving our first real home!
I hope to write down a few of our memories during the next few days so that we won't forget!
