I can not believe in two weeks we will no longer own this house! This house that we bought 3 months before our first son was born. So many memories have been made in this house. Great memories of family & friends sharing our lives. Birthday parties, St. Patrick's Day parties, pool parties, block parties...wow, I guess we like a good party! But, even just everyday life has been good in this house. I will miss the pool & outdoor fireplace, the back patio (but, not how the sun glared into our faces when we wanted to have dinner outside!), the "media room", the big flat driveway that the kids could scooter & ride their bikes around, the way the house looks with Christmas lights, the big kitchen....I'm sure there are plenty more I have forgotten! It is hard to picture someone else living in this house. I hope they love it like we have. Maybe they will be better at taking care of the lawn (it is hard for two Midwesterners to understand desert lawn maintenance! We never did get it quite right.) I am sad that the kids are just now at the age where they can play in the pool. I don't think we will have a pool in Memphis...I can't imagine what it will be like to go to a community pool after having our own private pool, we are SO spoiled!
I can't wait to go house shopping when we get to Memphis! I know we will never find a house like this one in Memphis, but, our possibilities are wide open at this point. It is exciting to imagine what will be!
