1. My mom has always had serious happy feet. I’ve never been attached to any place. I’ve lived in this apartment with my father for 3 years and I think that’s the longest I’ve ever lived in one place. When I moved in with my boyfriend, I thought I was finally gonna have that sort of “home”. Turns out it only lasted 2 weeks because he ended up losing his home. He had a hard time and I felt so bad because I just couldn’t grasp it. I definitely hope someday to have a place to settle down in and be attached to like that!

  2. I can totally relate to this post. While it’s exciting to move on to a bigger and better closet, I mean home, it’s so sad to leave behind the place that has so many memories. My husband and I sold our first home last summer and just recently bought a new home. I cried when we said our final goodbye to our first home. It’s the place we lived when we were first married and for 5 years after that. I can’t wait to see pictures of your new home!


  3. Congratulations on your new home!!! That’s so exciting, but I understand how hard it must be to leave a home that you built your life in. But walk in closet! Um yay!

  4. But I’m not going to cry (very much), and I’m not going to be sad (for too long), I’m going to just be so thankful for our new home and look forward to all the memories we will create there! http://qr.net/stx3

  5. So exciting! Congrats on the new place! 🙂 I totally understand how hard it can be to let go of a place that is really where everything started. My boyfriend and I lived in the same place for 2.5 years and moving last fall was hard on me. While I was excited to be closer to the city and work, we had so many good memories in that place! You will love building your new home though, so the sadness won’t stay long!

  6. I am so happy for you! You two are going to LOVE your new house so much. I understand your attachment to your house. My husband owned our house before we even met, too. But, we’ve always been of the mind that it’s not our forever house so… it’s not quite decorated how I want. We’re slowly (slowly) saving to (hopefully) build one day. It will actually be hard to leave this house! There are so many memories here.

  7. BAH! Such an exciting day!!! I am sad just thinking about leaving our house behind, but I would totally be excited to moving into a new house too! Especially one with a walk-in closet!!! Congratulations friend!!

  8. Awe Molly that’s great! Congratulations on the closing! I moved around my entire life, but when we bought our house in FL I was in swoonsville. It was the cutest ranch house with citrus trees, an enclosed back porch, and a clothesline. We had to leave FL when I was laid off as a subcontractor to NASA, but that has been my favorite house we lived in. We love our loft that we live in now, and though we pay $$$$$$$$ to live here, I don’t know if I could buy another home yet. I think I have pretty high standards now and I’m purdy picky haha! 🙂

  9. So excited for you!! I’m sure it’s sad to leave your first home together, but moving always, always solidifies in my mind this statement, “Home is where the heart is.” I’ve moved twice with my husband and I’m so thankful that wherever we go together is “home” to us. Your new place will feel like that soon! (maybe not right away) Can’t wait to see the new place!!!

  10. Congrats! We moved about every 2 years the first 11 of our marriage so had to get over nostalgia, but definitely made memories in each home and left a piece of us behind. We do our timeline by what house or town we lived in when looking back!!! I am currently in the same house for almost 10 years and that is a record for me. Have a great day making memories!

  11. Molly! Congrats on the new house!! So exciting! This post was so beautifully written- even made me nostalgic!

  12. That is the cutest home! I am sure you will miss it(: Our daughter was born in SC and I cry every time we visit. It was really where my life began(: Blessings for many new memories in your new home! Susan

  13. I’m pretty fortunate not to have had to move very often. When we first got married we had a little apartment and a couple of years later we bought our first house. There was a tiny tinge when we left the apartment, but it never really felt like it was ours. I have a feeling it will be hard to leave this house when the time comes though…
