Tonight is the last night I will sleep in this house.
I have nurtured friendships under this roof, built a marriage, created a family, and raised a son. I have decorated every room of this home, sewn curtains, hung pictures, built shelves, and created spaces fantastical and comforting. My hand has touch every nook and cranny of this space. I have cooked countless meals in this kitchen. I have been happier than I have ever known, more taxed and challenged, and more blessed than I could have ever wished under this roof. I have seen my child grow from sesame seed to toddler within these walls. I have given birth in this home.
I don't think I realized how much I would miss it.
Thank you for the shelter you have given, the love you have fostered, and the memories you have helped create.
