Today we sold Mini House, our first home.  It was bittersweet.  From what we know about the buyers, this will be their first home and they have a French bulldog named, Tater Tot. How cute! They wrote us a sweet note about Mini House and I have no doubt that they will love it as much as we did.
When we closed (a little over a year ago!) it was a Friday afternoon and I remember how excited Nick and I were to kick off the weekend off as homeowners! Even better, my parents were out visiting and got to share in our excitement and get a first glimpse before we began all the transformations.

Mini House: June 2009

Throughout my life, I've had the opportunity to live in several homes, in several different states. Each one has such great memories tied to it from Country Club Lane to University Blvd!

There is a song on the radio right now by Miranda Lambert titled "The House That Built Me." The first time I heard it was around the time that we put our house on the market and I remember listening to the words and sitting at a stop light with tears rolling down my face.

Take a listen, the words are perfect.

Any special Homes in your life? I'd love to hear!

Happy Weekend to You! xoxo


  1. got us teary too! We had our fair share of moving..8 times in the first 17 years..We took a special memory from each home and you will too. Cheers to Mini House and all the love you & Nick put in to it and to Tater Tot & the new owners. xo

  2. The house we are currently building is certainly special to me. A team including my husband, my parents (and a few others along the way) have been hard at work but mostly fun for the past two years. The memories and experiences our house have given us are priceless, and we are not even living there yet! I'm new to your blog (found it on Life in the Fun Lane). Itching to go read more. Thanks for blogging :) (I have two blogs on one account and cannot figure out how to have the house blog as my link-just in case you want to check it Thanks.
