The Bit of Paradise


It looks like moving is in our near future.  With our new baby coming, we just don't know how to make our home work anymore.  We've been here for almost 10 years.  A whole lot of memories have been made.  One kid has been here 10 of his 12 years, another all of his life minus 5 weeks, and another his entire life.  Depending on the timing, we don't even know if the next child will be brought to this home or another.  Bittersweet for sure.  Doesn't help that I am emotional from pregnancy on top of it all!  Ha!
 
These pictures are a few of the sites that I will sorely miss.  Eric's grandparents owned the home before us and his grandad did an amazing job of making the place a tiny paradise.  It took me years to figure it out, but there is something almost always in bloom around here.  Even in the snow!
 
The beautiful site has been a gift for sure, since I don't have a green thumb.  In fact, I am so bad at landscaping that I am pretty sure my thumbs are colorless!  When something always comes back in full color and bloom, I just thank God cause it is a gift totally undeserved!
 
We'll probably put the sweet home on the market after Christmas.  If you know anyone in need of a centrally located home with a great price and huge backyard, send them our way!
 
I am going to go find some tissues now.  sniff.
