Goodbye Sweet Home!!

We have been busy since Wednesday packing the house!! We have finished the entire basement, and have started the upstairs. If I think about it too much I tend to get completely overwhelmed! So, I am just trying to focus on a room by room basis (which is hard for a planner like me!!).

I am also trying to sell a few different pieces of furniture since we won't be needing them in our new house. I posted a bunch of them on craigslist, which is great! But, you tend to get a 1,000 emails about one piece of furniture. I have some people coming to look at couches today, and to pick up our riding lawn mower. I can't tell you how happy I will be to watch that mower get hauled away!! We are going to have a small push mower at the next house, whoo hoo!!

I decided to give myself a little break this morning and change my blog header. I also wanted to download the pictures that our realtor took of our house when we listed it. Her husband is a photographer, and the pictures turned out incredible!! I wanted to make sure I had a copy of them for memory sake.

Chris and I were talking about how we will be living in a new house in a week from now. It is sad to think about leaving our home, but I am excited for what the future will hold. I have already posted many of the important reasons about why we are moving, but Chris and I built this home, and picked every single thing down to the grout colors. I am intimidated with the thought of doing it all again, but here we go!! Sweet home you will be missed! Cheers to your new owners, I hope they enjoyed you as much as we did!!

I'm so behind in catching up with blogs. Congrats on the move! I'm sure you are overwhelmed right now. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you. (and let us know if there's anything you're selling! You know how much I love that... =)

Congratulations on selling your house! I know you are excited about the move, but will miss the old house - the pictures are terrific. It looks like it was a great place to live - that closet alone is amazing! Good luck with all the packing. Hope to see you soon.

What a fabulous house! My favorite room is the toy room/sun room! I think I could live in that room alone!

Good luck with your move!

Krystyn said...

Congrats on selling your house...although I know it's quite bittersweet.

(That house really is gorgeous and I'm pretty sure my house would fit in the master shower alone!)

Gina said...

That house is amazing! I am sure you are excited to not have to clean that many square feet anymore. Such a gorgeous and elegant home though. Just stunning. I can't wait to see the new place! Good luck with the move. I know that is so hard.

Clare, I'm certainly going to miss this house because we always had such a great time hanging out! Can't wait to see your new place, though, and I hope you had fun shopping for all new underwear and socks! ;) By the way, it's amazing how the pictures of your house are taken in the fall but not a leaf is on the ground in the front! How did you do that!?!?! :)
