French Country Farmhouse Thru The Years Part 1- Saying Goodbye

Yes, I have been MIA for most of the month of July. As many of you may know we decided to list our home for sale at the end of May. In just 3 short weeks after listing we were under contract.

From that point on everything has been pretty much a whirlwind. I have not had anytime for anything that was not centered around our move. The moving truck came last Friday and we have since transitioned over to our short term lease house. Our new home will not be completed till sometime in October thus I have plenty of free time to get back to blogging!:)
 I thought that I would share a few posts about our home that we loved so very much.

We sold our first home in 2007 literally a week before the market bottomed out. At that time this house had just finished completion and sat,sat, and sat some more. It sat for a total of two years while we lived in Baton Rouge. We like to think it was waiting just for us!:)

Here we are 7 years later with many memories we hold near and dear.

During the past 7 years we have completely transformed our home.

We brought to life a house and made it a home.

I stood here the last day and I could still hear the boys playing and laughing.

It is funny, our dining room has been thru two different paint colors and I actually ended up going back to one that was very similar to the original color the builder had painted it.

As I walked thru our empty home this past week I was amazed at how large it felt. Though I was sad to be leaving it I was ever so thankful for the wonderful memories we have taken with us.

Over the next few days I will share some more of our home and the transformation it went thru.

    1. Hi Ron! Thanks for still being around. Geez, I have no ida who is left out there since I have been gone. We have been praying on moving for the past three years now. Finally all things fell into place and we are building across town to be closer to hubby's work.

    1. Yes, Stacey I agree! I almost think it is easier to be told we have to transfer then it was to make the decision to pick up and move ourselves. I think it would have been easier if our new home had been ready instead of having to hang out in a rental till fall. Feeling displaced right now but we know in the end it will all be worth it!:)

  4. Moving can be a very stressful process, especially when there's a temporary stint in the mix. But I'm sure there's excitement as well as you watch the progress made on your new home. I wish you and your family all the best during this time and excited to see where you land.
