It’s funny – we had never planned on staying here forever, we have always planned on moving to another neighbourhood in a few years. However, we want to move on our own terms and not because we are told we have to. After taking a year to renovate our home only to face the prospect of having it demolished is not a reality I want to face.
More importantly, this is the first home and only home that both of my daughters have ever known. All of the firsts have taken place here. The first smile, giggle, roll, words, etc. Even though we weren’t always going to live here, I would love to bring my girls back to see where they had lived.
