I am having a very hard time letting that HOME go. But it is time. Our family has moved on to a new home that fits us all, where new memories are being built! Baby number 2 did all her first here except coming home for the first time. LOL.
I wanted the new owner to know that house was a home, our home, and now their home. I wanted them to know some of the beautiful memories it holds safely in its walls. I wanted them to know it is a beautiful place for them to build their life and their memories and to wish them luck in their new HOME.
And so this is what I created for them:
It is quite simple, I know, but all I know about the new owner is that he is male. So I needed to make something very neutral. I don't know his age or background, likes or dislikes, religion or lack there of. So I played it super safe and just made a quick and simple little card. Inside I wrote a much briefer version of what I wrote above and wished him luck.
And tomorrow I will leave it on the counter when I am in that home, for the last time before I hand over keys to the realtor and move that home officially into our past. <TEARS>
