But now that the house is listed, I am reveling in the glory of a totally clean and decluttered home, in a season where it's best for us to enjoy out of the house activities (Park! Zoo! Family walks! Dinner on the patio!) instead of staying in (and dirtying) our home. This is particularly a treat for me, whose natural inclination is always to stay home and clean.
I have found myself waxing poetical about our first home together. This home greeted us from our honeymoon, welcomed our new babies, provided us with perennial flowers almost all year long, and has simply been our little haven. So, I thought I'd link to a post on Sarah's blog (a guest post by Laura) that I've read and saved in preparation for our move. It rings true for me and I sincerely hope a wonderful family moves into our home.
