As of this morning, our house is officially on the market. It was almost difficult to put that "For Sale" sign in the front yard. Seriously...Josh and I had a moment.
Oh, how I excited I am about our new home, but I always knew that this process would be bittersweet. There aren't words to express how much I have adored our first home, the good times we've had there, and the affection for which I will always look back on where we started our lives together. I hope and pray that it goes to a couple/family who loves it and takes care of it as much as we did.
And, since I took a bunch of pictures in preparation for getting the house on the market... Guess what??
Sigh... I took a ton of pictures. Was anyone else this emotional about selling their house? Advice for the weeks to come?
And, if you know of anyone still looking for the perfect 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in St. Charles, feel free to e-mail me (email@example.com) for details.

I love the wrap around porch.
The kitchen that made me swoon.
I don't know what to say except that I'm in love with our soon-to-be new home. However, it will be so bittersweet for me to leave our current house. Josh proposed to me there, after all!! And, we've put so much work into it. I can only hope that it will go to someone who will take good care of it.
While we still have the task ahead of selling/renting our current home, I cannot say enough about how blessed we both are. What does Charlotte say in the Sex and the City movie when she's afraid to go for a run early in her pregnancy - "nobody gets everything that they want"? While we certainly don't have "everything", and I am definitely more grateful than afraid, I can still understand her sentiment.
