Farewell Ballymena Dr

In exactly 1 week from today is moving day....

So many memories were made here

Next Sunday movers will be loading up all the boxes we have been packing for the past 2 weeks and we will be saying our final good byes to 4400 Ballymena Dr.  I briefly mentioned in my last post that what has helped keep me from being too overly emotional about this move is that for a few weeks we were a little worried this house would not sell in time (which means we would not be getting to move into our dream home we have spent 6 months building!) We did not want to have to move twice and the home we are building was not going to be ready until November, so waited until September to list our current house... little did we know that the market would slow down drastically once school started. Luckily, after 3 different offers in 50 days the last one finally went through (3rd times a charm) and 4400 Ballymena Dr is under contract.

Although I am excited about our new home that we got to design and build together. I will always hold a special place in my heart for our Ballymena home. This was our first home in the DFW area and I remember walking through it and saying this house is PERFECT. It truly was perfect to me and it has been the absolute best house for the past 5 years and 8 months.

John and I began our family in this house and we brought both of our girls home to this house. We have had countless Bible studies, game nights, birthday parties, BBQ's and Holidays in this wonderful home. This truly has been a place full of love & prayer and I believed we used 4400 Ballymena Dr to glorify God in every way possible.

Before this chapter comes to an end I want to give y'all a little tour of this precious home. I have show pictures of Josse & Jewel's nursery but never of all the rooms so here ya go...

We have loved the Heritage Green community

I have rocked both of my babies on this porch countless times

Good Bye 4400 Ballymena Dr. You will be missed but I pray that the next family who lives here will create just as special family memories and fill your walls with laughter, love & prayer.
