Fond Memories

This month we sold our former home near Knoxville.  Although it is a huge relief not to have 2 homes at once, it was sad to know it was no longer ours.

Reminisce with me.....

It was home to an annual Thanksgiving reunion with B's side of the family.  Kids had lots of fun on the stairs.
And parking cars on the small space at the top of our driveway was always interesting.

It was home to several graduation parties that we hosted, including this one for Amanda's college graduation.

Being on a hill, we have some great views - here's a rainbow.

Here's the trees in winter (I always wanted to try and draw them).
This is the view from our front porch when the water was all misty....loved it like that!

And another time.
And one more.
B got this deer in our back yard!!

Even though they were really like pets.....I loved watching them out our back door.
Inside I painted several walls including this one in the dining room that I stenciled...loved how it turned out!
This house also was where I began my "love" of pears - here's the stamped kitchen.
And pantry.
B got his first work truck while we lived there.
And his tractor - he LOVES this thing!
It was useful to mow the steep yard.

I could go on and on.....

We are happy to pass you along to another was sad to see you empty.  THANKS for the memories!

This truly was a wonderful home! There are many memories I will never forget. Running with Maverick up the mountain, flipping the 4-wheeler while trying to ride it up the mountain, Robert Lee actually running down the driveway and somehow not completely wiping out, Fourth of July's ('nough said), everyone falling down the basement stairs at least once in their life....the list could go on! I hope the family that lives there now will make it a fabulous home and have wonderful memories!
