Friends, we are closed on our Kentucky home today. I never thought I would hear myself say those words.
This. Is. Hard.
Thankfully, we do not have to be out of our home today, but we have the week to get packed up. After the closing, I took the kids to the dentist, and then I went home to start packing things up room by room.
Not gonna lie, I was fighting back tears today. Trying to be strong in front of the kids, but I really felt like bawling. Not because I am regretting the decision to sell our house. I’m not. I have a peace about the new adventure ahead of us. I’m just super sentimental about all of the WONDERFUL memories we have had in this home.
We have worked so hard over the past nine years to transform our little ranch into our Kentucky farmhouse. We have renovated or built every room in this house. Oh, if these walls could talk! Every single inch of this house holds a different memory, and I treasure EVERY single one.
The boys were so little when we moved here…
(Jonathan-11, Luke-9, Adam-7, and Eli-4)
Now they are young men…
(Jonathan-20, Luke-17, Adam-15, and Eli-12)
And this is the place where we first brought home our sweet little girl…
It was her very first forever home with her forever family. Preparing her bedroom was one of my most precious memories in this home. I spent so many hours in that room praying for that sweet little girl! It was the first time she had her very own bedroom, and she loved it so much!
By the way, this little girl is turning into a young lady, and she blesses our socks off every day! She was a BIG HELPER this past weekend with the yard sale, and she even made some money at her lemonade stand. I am so proud of her!
As I look back over the last 8 years in this home, I am filled with gratitude to my Heavenly Father! I have been blessed more than I deserve. He has blessed us beyond what we could have ever hope for or imagined. Not because of the “things” we have in this house, but because of the people and memories in it.
These are my people, and I ADORE THEM!
We are a crazy crew. Never a dull moment in the Hutcherson Household! They make my life so FULL!!!
So even though closing on our house today was very difficult…my heart is more grateful than sad. I know the Lord has my family in His hands, and we can trust Him.
This next phase of our life is going to be a good one! I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for each of us!
And of course, I will be sharing it all right here with YOU!
STAY TUNED to learn more about our new home this week!
