Beautiful home. You made it so!
I know how you feel. I wept when we received word of a good offer on a home we were ready to move on from several years ago. These were not tears of joy although rationally they should have been. Early on, I sometimes drove home to the old house by mistake! For months Id go a little out of my way just to drive by. (Why did they replace my front porch light with that ugly one?)
I love our new house, were very happy here, but it was difficult to emotionally detach. But one does. It gets easier. One forgets. New wysteria will bloom.
Thanks for writing. Lovely piece.
