Today we finished packing and cleaning and said goodbye to our home in Vancouver. I’d been so focused on accomplishing all of the tasks on my to do list that I hadn’t taken the time to think about about how much I’ll miss our little old house – the one in which our baby girl learned to walk, where she learned to talk, where she said so long to diapers, where she graduated to a big girl bed, and so many other important things… It all hit me when she walked into her empty bedroom for the final time, called out, “Goodbye, room!”, and then leaned into the wall with big open arms and gave it a kiss. Ugh. Tears.
They snuck up on me again as I took this final photo of her on our front porch, ringing the doorbell as she always does, just one last time.
So long, little house in East Vancouver. Big changes are ahead…
