Show & Tell: Goodbye...

...and Good Riddance!

We're taking a break from the Disney stories for a bit of rememberance and celebration.  Today, we officially closed on the sale of our MN house after 17 long months on the market.  It was our first house.  I loved that house.  But, after 17 months, I say, "Goodbye House and Good Riddance!"  I know that our former townhome will make its next occupants extremely happy.  So, for show and tell today, I'm sharing our first home with each of you in rememberance:



The celebration part is this...Hubby and I summed it up pretty well tonight with a glass of champagne and a toast.  The toast was to the joys of owning only one home, new beginnings, and the value of patience.  A fitting lesson given our next journey. 

So, lastly, I'll share tonight's glass of champagne.  The irony is that we discovered that the champagne glasses are fittingly MIA since the move!



Now that I've stepped to the front of the class to share, it's your turn! Please join us over at Mel's Place for our weekly Show & Tell circle time!

As someone who is currently in real estate hell (partly thanks to the ex from hell), I truly appreciate this post. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Your old house looked fabulous, may you take all the wonderful memories into your new home and multiply them!
