Goodbye Home

Greetings to those who have enjoyed Clare's posts, as I have. This is my first post so I thought I'd start with my exciting news. I just sold my home of 5 1/2 years! Although my husband and I are excited to sell, we can't help but be a little sad about saying goodbye to our first home together.
When we first bought it in December 2004 we worked on it for a month, doing all of the painting, flooring and lighting ourselves, with the help of our families.
A couple of years later we had enough saved for a new kitchen. With the help of my parents, we did the tiling ourselves...
More recently in the past year we've focused on the back courtyard. We had installed the awning, paving and deck around the already existing spa. We're thrilled with the results. We've turned our backyard into a tropical sanctuary.

But alas, now that it looks fabulous we only have 6 more weeks (in the middle of Winter) to enjoy it. We can only look forward to making our next home into our sanctuary. Having our 14 month girl, Violet, we want something a little larger, with a bigger backyard for her to play. So we're on the hunt for the right place! I'm excited that in a couple of months we could have another blank canvas to decorate. Hmmm, what theme should we go with? I'll keep you posted.
