Closing Time!

It's closing time! We're closing on our old house today. It's hard to believe in this market that we were able to get an offer about 2 weeks after we listed our home, which we accepted. Once all the inspections were done and the (thankfully) minimal fixes were completed, the big day was scheduled... and the big day is HERE!

I'm so grateful we were able to sell so quickly. And rightfully so! Our old home was in immaculate condition. My husband is so OCD about stuff there's just no way he would've let anything in that house fall apart. ;) The new owner of our home has a wonderful place that I'm sure will be so very special to her! It saw me through singlehood, marriage and the birth of two children... we've got a lot of memories there and it's definitely sentimental to officially let go of it for good.

As such, I took the kids by there yesterday to get some final pictures of the house. Here are a few from our iPhone photo shoot. ;)

The tiny little deck that hubs built.

My big kids!

Hug like you mean it!

Don't hurt your brother! LOL!

Goodbye, sweet home.
On a totally related note, is it weird that I've left a card and housewarming gift inside the house for the new owner? I'm thinking it's not weird, but I did get some funny looks from hubs when I explained what I was doing. I know at the end of the day it's just a financial transaction, but I can't help but attach some emotion to it, too.
