This Friday, I am taking a break on listing five different things I am thankful for, and rather, I am going to be talking about one in particular..This week, I am thankful for the place we call home.
One. This little cottage has been the center of the life that Jeff and I created together. I can look back to when we bought this house almost four years ago and know how thrilled I was to be purchasing a home with my fiance. We had just gotten engaged and were so excited to finally have a place of our very own. Jeff and I were ready to make this house our home, and it has been the place where we have grown from newlyweds to a family of four.
Two. From wedding planning to decorating nurseries and everything in between, this house has seen a lot. It was the place we came home to once we returned from our honeymoon as husband and wife, and it is where we brought two adorable babies home from the hospital. So many blessings, and so much to be thankful for.
Three. Family dinners, birthday parties, and showers…just a few of the get-togethers we have had at this place. We have gathered around our table to give thanks, to celebrate victories, to ask our friends to be the girls’ godparents, the list goes on and on. I am thankful for the countless meals we have prepared here, and thankful for all the occasions we have enjoyed while calling this house our home.
Four. So many changes and transformations…installing an office nook, built-in cabinets, endless gallons of paint, a new fence, oh how much we have “improved” this quaint little cottage. Leaving something better than you left it…that’s joy, right? I love it when spring rolls around and to see how it changes from season to season…flowers and blooms for warmer months as well as leaves and evergreens during the fall and winter.
Five. I am thankful that a new family will hopefully have the same kind of happiness that we have experienced here. Yes, you heard it right…
I’ve been keeping this a “blogging world” secret for two months now and it’s been eating me alive because I’ve wanted to share this with ya’ll. Well, as of yesterday morning, we are the proud owners of a new home!
