Felt perfect....

This is a picture of our {old} house that we moved from 3 years ago Today!
It's not the best picture but it gives you an idea. I loved that house...it had the perfect southern "red" door with a wonderful pineapple knocker on it. It was surrounded in the back by big mature trees...

This picture was taken about a month ago...the new owners are not keeping it up as well. But, the word around the neighborhood is that it's going BACK up for sale. I asked Mr. Sandy Toes last night if we could move back. He rolled his eyes...I said it in a joking way but in my heart I meant it more than anything!

It wasn't the {perfect} place but a lot of it felt perfect....

That's too bad the new owners aren't keeping it up as well as you did. :(

I think that house is Perfect! I see why you love it-but I am sure it has to do with the memories...All five of us wouldn't fit back in our old house, but I always think of all the memories, and it makes me want to move back-
Maybe one day for you...you never know!

That is one gorgeous home! Doesn't it break your heart when you sell a home, especially one you really loved, only to find that the new owner's don't take good care of it?

Looks like a great house. Reminds me of the Father of the Bride house.

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

tell mr. sandy toes that some of us know certain kinds of PEOPLE who can be VERY persuasive. WE NEED YOU! Your old house looks AWFUL! It needs you too!

LuLu said...

Oh the feeling an old home can evoke is always makes me feel a bit sad, it is a wonderful home. it's great to have such memories, the exciting thing with life is that you never know what it will bring.

What a beautiful house....I am sure you miss it dearly. Maybe your wonderful friends can help you try to convince Mr. Sandy Toes to put in an offer:) A girl can dream....right?
