I have loved our old home from the minute I set eyes on it, but I confess it hasn’t always felt like home and for the first 1 1/2 years of living here, I would frequently fight of a nagging feeling of homesickness for our previous home. Those wall held so many memories of my children. It smelled like home. This old house didn’t feel like “home.”
But over the last several months, I have felt a change. As seasons have changed, old memories have come to mind, and now, that we have lived here for two years, some of those memories are of things that happened within these walls.
A we head into our third year of ownership, I look forward to more house projects- renovating the butler’s pantry, creating a powder room and yanking up the worn carpeting on the stairs and upstairs hall are high on my list.
And in the middle of all of the improvements and projects, I know that more memories will be made. Birthdays, holidays, hardships and other little life moments tucked in the midst of it all.
