This weekend was so beautiful out that we decided it would be best to stay at our old home and continue on our yard work. We need to get the old place ready so that when the new place is move in ready and we can move in put the old one up for sale.
What a great weekend for working outside! We had some somber moments though, every time we sat down to take a break we thought about all of the special moments we had in this home. Our new home is only 5 min away but there are some big differences in the land. The old home was only 2.5 acres and the new home is 49 acres! (lots of hiking/mountain biking trails). The old home had this beautiful creek that was a part of our back yard with a waterfall that we will miss dearly(pretty sure Boss our dog will miss it too!). We sat back and thought about all of good times. We got engaged in this home! Took our engagement pictures on our own property, Branko built his first dream garage and our back yard bon-fires were always so much fun. It will definitely be sad to leave this place but the new place has so many great features as well. That deck will be our new coffee/tea location. Something we both look forward too when we get home on those nice summer nights after work. The peace and quiet will also be a huge factor. Our old home was close to a main road and you can hear the cars zooming bar all summer long since it was a main road to Cottagers. The new home is far enough from this road that when we sit on the deck all we can hear is the wind blowing the trees.
Here is a picture of our current back yard, as beautiful as this area is we never spent much time down there. There was not much sun and it was further away from our house.
So to end it off, I am pretty sure we have already spent more time at our "favorite spot" at our new house.
Looking forward to new memories.....
