Self portrait project // 11

I’m going to miss this little house of ours. Five years go by so quickly…

When we moved in, Austin was just a little bug  — it’s hard to even believe now just how little — and Mark and I were just beginning to plan the beautiful wedding we’d eventually have.

We spent hours in those first weeks and months painting, putting down our own floors, installing a backsplash… and years transforming it into our home.

It’s hard to think about leaving now. About doing it all over again, building a new home…

But in the end, when I think about it, that little bug of ours isn’t really so big. And I can’t wait for this next stage of our lives.

What makes a home is the family inside, and hopefully, in our next home, we’ll all have lots more room to grow.

    Congrats on the new house. There will always be photos, stories & memories to remember it all by and now there will be even more in the new home :)

    Instead of “Where’s Waldo?” It’s “Where’s Lennon?”

    Congrats on your new house. It’s always sad to leave memories behind, but you would surely create new amazing ones in your new chapter. The photos look amazing by the way.
