That being said, we had to say our sweet goodbyes to our first home. I bought this little place on my own and soon after closing escrow I met my husband-to-be. A few short years later it became our home together and the home we brought our baby S home to.
We have so many fond memories in this house. We sat on that patio every night swinging, watching the ducks frolic in the water, and searching for fish and turtles. Little S would say Hi and Bye to every neighbor walking across the bridge...and the second she heard her friends outside, off we went to ride scooters and bikes around the complex, or walk to the tot-lot to play on the slide. We met some amazing people living here, families who have become lifelong friends.
This 1977 condo needed lots of work when I purchased it, and over the years we poured our hearts and wallets into this place. Flooring, bathrooms, kitchen, paint, lighting and all. Here are a few pictures of our cute little place, courtesy of our agent Joe Biswas with Keller Williams.
|The downstairs patio was our second family room!|
|This was our dining room, which at one point was a playroom/area.|
|Small but spacious, of that's even possible.|
|The buffet on the right will re-appear in a later post. It's getting a face-lift.|
|These 4 dining room chairs will also be getting a face-lift soon.|
|S's room which was always so peaceful.|
2015 will be a new adventure with the purchase of our new home! Time for a fresh start.
Lots to come this year and I'm so excited to share this journey! Happy New Year!
