It's Official! Our Home is on the Market...

After it seems like many hard weeks of never-ending projects, we've finally wrapped up all the loose ends and were able to list our house a few days ago. All we need now is someone to love our home and neighborhood as much as we have. Although we've lost some sleep over trying to sell a house in the current market conditions, we know that everything will eventually fall into place...hopefully.
Since the dust has settled and we finally have a completed home, I find myself sad to leave a home that has been with us since the beginning of our family.  Our first home has seen a family grow through happy times as well as painful moments.  Through blood, sweat, and tears, it has seen almost every square inch transformed from its former 70's self to something we are so proud to call home. 
When we purchased our home, a deck didn't exist.  All we had was an unsafe "apartment balcony"  that was hanging on the side of the house by a thread.  My husband built this two-story deck over three summers.  The bottom half is screened and it is relaxing to sit out and watch the kids play in the yard.

You should have seen the kitchen & bath before we got a hold of it!

A part of me hopes that the next family that moves in has three girls too :)
 It isn't a fancy mansion, but it's been the best first home we could have asked for and I hope the next family enjoys it as much as we have.
