Goodbye Starter Home

Last week we signed our names on the dotted line and sold our house! It is time to say goodbye to our first "Harrison Homeplace".

This has been a long time coming (since Georgia Grace became mobile) and we decided after Christmas last year that it was time. A friend of mine told me a year ago to contact her when we were ready to sell because her out-of-town parents might be interested. Long story short, they fell in love with all 895 square feet of our house just like we did almost five years ago. We didn't even have to put it on the market and they gave us an offer two weeks from the first showing. It couldn't have been easier or come at a more perfect time.

It has been the perfect little house for us.

When I say we are going to miss this place I mean those words. This is the place where I started my life as a bride. We celebrated our first holidays together between those walls. Our Georgia Grace spent the first year and a half of her life in this home where she took her first steps and spoke her first words. It has been four great years filled with living, learning and love.

Closing day isn't until the middle of June so we have a little time to enjoy what makes this place so attractive-the 15 minute mowing job, the small amount of space to clean and Marcus's ability to walk to work every day. :) Oh how he will miss those extra minutes of sleep.

The new owners will take a little piece of my heart with them when the final box is moved. I know they will enjoy it just as much as we have. And we have a lot to look forward to as we plan for the future and growing our little family.

So what's next?

We are moving in with my Dad while we build our forever home!!

It's going to be a fun summer. Let the packing begin!

    1. Thanks Lindsey! This is happening a little earlier than we planned but God's timing trumps our own :)
