Closing One Chapter, Opening Another

Hey y'all!  Happy Friday!

This week Matt & I have been grabbing the last few teeny tiny things from our rental & cleaning the house to prepare for the new tenants.  Yesterday was what will most likely be our very last time to be in that house.  A place that we've called home for the last 3 1/2 years.

It was a very bittersweet day.

Thinking back over the last 3+ years, we've made a lot of memories in that little house.

- Our first Christmas together
- A handful of birthdays
- 4th of July parties
- Ugly Christmas Sweater parties
- Bingham's first home

I could go on & on but, what made that house special is that not only was it mine & Matt's first house together but, we made that house a home.  It was our first home together.

Standing in the entryway before we locked & shut the door for the last time, there were definitely a couple of tears shed.

I'm thankful for all of the wonderful memories, and some not so wonderful, that we had in this little home.

We're ready to close this chapter in our lives though & put a big 'ol check mark by it... Successful!

With chapters closing, new ones open...
We are blessed beyond belief & so excited for this new chapter.  SO many new things are ahead of us & I absolutely cannot wait to take on these new adventures!

Have you ever felt bittersweet when moving from one home to another?


  1. It's definitely bittersweet, but I'm sure you guys have a lot of fun and exciting things ahead of you!! :)

  2. Yes! Leaving is always hard but at least you know a new experience is about to take place!

  3. awe this is so sweet! I definitely feel ya sister! I can't wait to see your new home!!

  4. I have experienced this feeling every time I've moved!! Homes become so sentimental... It's like leaving a loved one behind. But... I love moving because it's a great time for going through things and cleaning out. Plus, the new place will be SO exciting and slowly it will become your HOME. Congratulations on the new place!! :)
