I moved around A LOT as a child and lived in several different homes and neighborhoods.
I was born in Germany and moved to Seattle, WA when I was 6 months old. After that, we moved to Tacoma, WA where I lived until I was 8 years old. I loved that house!
We backed up to a park that we could go play at whenever we wanted and didn't need a parental unit watching our every move. We had lemonade stands outside the park entrance. My brother and I had to walk 2 miles to and from school everyday because we went to the "wrong" school.
When I was 8, we moved to Richardson, TX, the first suburb North of Dallas. I lived in 5 different houses in Richardson before moving to Arlington, TX for college. After graduation, I moved to Lewisville and then a couple of places in North Dallas.
From there, I bought my first house in Sachse, TX, 5 minutes North East of Richardson.
Then, I came full circle and moved back to Richardson. This would be the house I grew up in... I got married here. I turned 30 here. I had a baby here... I learned so much about me and my life while living in this house.
In two days, this will no longer be my house. I have moved to Austin, TX and my Richardson "home" has a contract on it and if the buyers' lender would submit their final docs to the title company, we can close this thing.
That would put an end to the chapter of my life in Dallas. I lived in the Dallas area for 4 months shy of 25 years. That's a lifetime!
Here are some memories of that house:
And then we had to clear it out for the movers...
It's now a blank slate, waiting for the next family to make their own memories...
