Leaving Our First Home

Tomorrow we will be moving out of our first married home and in to our next phase of life. I am obviously ready and excited, but part of me is feeling a bit sad to leave. From January 2013 to March 2017, we have been through so much and have created so many memories within these walls. 

Leaving Our First Home

To some, it may just look like a tiny one bedroom apartment, but to me it is so much more. This was the first place we ever lived together where we learned how to live as a married couple. We’ve been through many jobs and hard times and have come out stronger in the end. 

Within these walls I’ve cried over jobs, losing sleep, losing loved ones, being angry, and being sad. I’ve hosted family and friends around our little table cooking many things in our tiny kitchen. I’ve enjoyed long conversations at the table and enjoyed quiet relaxing moments where nothing more had to be said.I found out I was pregnant in this home, a moment I had been waiting for for a long time. I celebrated the tiny human with my husband through hugs and kisses and smiles.

As we embark on the next phase of life, I look forward to creating many new memories as a family of three in our new space. As I shut the door on our cozy little place, I’ll never forget the wonderful love and memories that were created in this special space the last 4 years. 

Thank you, Amanda for allowing me to think out loud today!

  1. I STILL miss our first home and it’s been 3 years and three kids later since we’ve moved. I do drive-bys to make sure they’re taking care of it 😂

  2. It’s always hard to leave home, but it opens up the door for a new set of experiences!! I made a big move from London where I grew up to California for university a few years ago and it was certainly tough, but it’s great to have ties in both the UK and US. London will always be in my heart!

  3. Leaving the first home I remembered for 14 years was TOUGH. We cried a lot; it was a quiet dirt road neighborhood, never much traffic, and such amazing neighbors. But we learned so many things through moving and coming to where we are now; I know you’ll make just as many precious memories… <3

  4. Aw moving can be sad, especially when you’ve made so many memories. I miss my old city and apartment too, mostly because I knew everyone and it was comfortable. I enjoy my new city (I moved a few months ago) and am finding my footing and creating new memories.
    My favorite memory from my old apartment was playing with my roommates cats while watching 7th Heaven. It felt like a family 🙂

    • 7th Heaven–wow I forgot about that show! Classic! I’m already feeling a little bit more at home as we slowly figure out where to put our things.

  5. The best thing about memories are you just keep the good ones and keep adding on to them. You don’t have to leave the important stuff behind💜!

  6. I love this post! It’s so bittersweet to move from your first home. You have so many great memories, but it’s so exciting to make the new ones! Every time we drive by our first apartment we always reminisce about something that happened there. It’s fun! I hope your move goes smoothly!

  7. Moving is such a difficult thing. It’s exciting to look forward to a new home and new memories; while at the same time, it’s hard to leave what we’re so used to calling home. I know God has great things in store for you and your little family! Hope your move is a smooth transition <3
