We sold our house!


W is for We sold our house!
It is official! We sold our house and moving in July....Most likely the 1st of July.....
It was great to design this house. I will not miss the financial weight and having the biggest house in the area. Not so cool to make friends.

We find a house in Salt Lake city. Closer to work.
Hubby will not miss the 3-4 hours a day traffic.

I feel good about the whole thing....It is going to be good.
I am going to keep posting the house tour.....Even the empty rooms. The design is very French and you guys can get inspired.
Hugs
Frenchy
I am packing away.....

My Alphabet Party link is on my right side bar.

That's wonderful! It's a gorgeous home but your hubby being closer to work and you being in a more populous area will be worth much more:)

I'm sure you'll make your new home just as gorgeous as this one!

Brenda said...

Deanna said...

Congrats and HaPpY packing!
That's an adventure in itself.

In 35 years of marriage I have moved 17 times and each time after the house was empty, I would walk through the house and think on happy things/times. Then say good bye to the house.

It helped me to have some closure.
God bless,
