~ So We Don't Forrget - Our First Home ~

Join us for " So We Don't Forget " it's an opportunity to document those precious moments .... sweet memories so that ..... You Don't Forget " :)

Today's Topic : Tell us about your first home after you were married ?
If your not married - tell us about a home you've lived in and that you had special memories of.

Well our first home was just a rental but it was still so AWESOME. I loved it so much, it was right in town, which really isn't my thing. I love the country but for right now we were close to work and close to his children from another marriage. It was a four bedroom home which was really nice. Lots of room something we really needed. I had 3 children at the time and my step-son lived with us. His other 2 children came every Wednesday and every other weekend. Had a really roomy kitchen which I loved so much. I love to cook. The dining room was good sized. It even had a playroom that was also good sized & the kids could keep most of there toys in. A nice porch out front to sit on, even though it was in town. It was on what you would call a not so busy street, I liked that. I really loved that house and wished we weren't moving when we decided to. Also it was close to downtown so when we needed anything we didn't have to go far. Sometimes I wish I could have brought it with me to Nevada. It will always hold some very special memories for me.

Also just to add one thing that was funny or very interesting was everytime the power decided to go out in town, it always seemed to get our home. One time we had a bad winter storm & lost power for 9 days. The next yr was in the summer for 7 days. Even though it always got our home I still loved it our home.

Love is what makes it a home.

Happy memories of your first home together with a blended family! I'll bet there were adjustments to be made,...but with such a big home and a mother who loved cooking I am sure the kiddos felt loved and were all well fed.

Isn't it hard when the power goes off? I can't stand it,...and yet you had to endure it for a week at a time! Wow!

God is so good to get us through the trials of life. And His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness.

Thanks for joining in today.

That's wonderful to hear you speak so fondly of your home. Sweet memories. :)

Wow, 9 days without power. I'd die - okay that might be a slight exaggeration, but I would hate it. Ugh!
