This is the house we have sold.
It is a special house as it is the first house we owned. We have lived here for 7 years. When we moved in it was just the two of us. It was a huge move from an old 2 bedroom flat to a brand new 3 bedroom house. We worked hard to pay off a good chunk of the mortgage before we started our family. This is where we bought our new babies home to. It was Sofia and Na'uli's first home. We have created a lovely garden, a nice environment for our children to play in. There have been lots of happy and fun occasions at this home as well as some sad ones. We have celebrated birthdays, shared meals with friends and family, hosted nephews and nieces, sisters, parents and friends. In this house we have recuperated from illnesses, mourned the loss of Paula's mother and survived the thousands of earthquakes that have rocked our city over the last year.
This has been a great house and we have created many memories here.
Now it is time for a change, the next step in our journey.
This is the house we have bought.
We wanted somewhere that was close to town for work but far enough away to feel like we were in the country. We wanted some land so we can have animals, plenty of sheds to store our company vehicles and materials, more vege garden, more bedrooms and overall more space and freedom...we think this fits the bill.
So here goes...hopefully lots more happy times will be had at the new house and more happy memories made.
