Replanting our Roots


It seems that since HeRoos and I met, our lives have been full of adventure and change. Well, we're embarking on another. Our home is for sale. We've been dragging our feet about it for quite a while now. We love the house. I think it has such a happy and open feeling. Our neighbors all around us are nice. They helped lay sod, delivered freshly baked bread & garden fresh vegetables, and have invited us over for a fiesta. We also enjoy having the park right across the street. It's so relaxing to sit on the porch and watch people fly kites or sled down the hill.

You're probably wondering why... We both have family that live further north (Layton, Syracuse, & Roy) and we would really like to live closer to them. HeRoos and I are also excited to buy a home together. HeRoos had the house built long before we met and this straight guy did a fabulous job picking out colors and not skimping out when it came the "extras." He also invested a lot of his own sweat and time into our home(granite tile counter tops, sprinklers, drip line, sod, landscaping, bathroom, etc). He never seems to amaze me with his brains and perfectionism. We've created some wonderful memories in this home but we're ready to plant our roots somewhere else. Send your positive vibes this way as we try to sell our home and relocate.

I hope it happens quickly for you since it is no fun at all to have to show you house all the time with a baby. It's a lovely home and anyone would be lucky to have it. Best of luck. (I do agree with Brittany up there though that it's a bit sad)

I wish you guys the best of luck on the house selling. Hopefully it happens quick, its no fun having to have your house ready to be a "showcase" at anytime-been there done that. I would love to have you closer up north! Good luck, and I send good vibes your way!

I am sending alot of positive vibes your way. Could I be so fortunate and lucky to have both of my kids and their families live that close to me ???? I would love it if you lived closer!! We could have spontaneous play dates. Then I could get my daily dose of grandchildren loving.( Crossing my fingers.) Love, G.R.
