Bidding Farewell ~ Our First Home ~ Part 1 {Front Porch}

For those of you who follow along you may know it is time for us to bid farewell to our first home.
Saying goodbye can be bitter sweet.
We have had many firsts in this home of ours.
This was our first home we bought together.
It was the first & last home that my Dad got to see of ours.
It was the first home we came home to as Mr. & Mrs. Corson.
It was the first home that we updated together.
It was the first home and last that we refinished hardwood floors in.
It was the first home that we shared many family dinners & holidays in.
And now it is the first home we have SOLD together.
This home will forever be in our hearts & memories as Our First Home.

Well, this week is moving week!
 I can't believe it's finally here!

On Saturday we will be packing up the moving truck & heading back to our hometown LeClaire, Iowa.  Returning to the small rivertown in the country on the Mighty Mississippi River where we grew up.
We have been looking forward to this day for a while now.
It's funny how you begin to really "find" yourselves & figure out who you will be together as
a couple in the first few years of marriage.  This is who we are.
We are small town couple who enjoy and appreciate the simple things in life.
We enjoy the community of small town living.
We happen to like knowing most of the people in town.
We like that we can walk down main street of our historic downtown and shop locally.
We can go to a nice restaurant with beautiful river views for dinner.
We love that we can drive on the outskirts of town and take a drive through the old country roads.

Anyway........ I could go on about how excited we are to be heading back to LeClaire.
But, I will save that for another post.

I promised we would be doing a recap of our first house this week.
So, come on in!

Here is what our front porch looked like just a few weeks ago.
