Man now I feel extra nostalgic too!


It is surely bittersweet to go down memory lane I too took a piece of rose bush that was my grandmother's to my parent's new house when I was in college. I often regret that I didn't get a piece of it for my own home When Mom left that house I was living 2000 miles away and didn't get a chance to get there before the new owners moved in. I'm sure it will do well with your love and attention.


Oh Valori, such a special good bye. I am sure when your Mom looks at these pics there will be other things besides a rose she had not remembered that your captured. I am glad you took the unhurried time to look around.


Thank you for the travel down the lane of the heart! I myself enjoyed the Quilter's Affair instructor's dinner on the deck there...such a beautiful peaceful place. But our lives are fluid and there are many more memories still to create...

These are bittersweet memories. I enjoyed your photos, and the memories. I drove by a house the other day, in which I lived with my former husband, and my daughter, from the time she was 5, until a Senior in High School.

It's for sale again...the 3rd time, since we sold it.

When we lived there, it was bright and colorful- Ivory with Red Trim, and red front, the forsythia and roses, and lilac bushes I planted are overgrown and neglected, the house is grey with white and black trim--front door is rust-colored.

It's totally different; almost as if those 12 years never happened--ghostly.

tender moments...


These pictures are sad. So many memories that brought so much happiness and now the place is ran down. However, maybe the new owners will clean the yard, paint the house, plant new flowers, and make it a cheerful home again.

This is a great posting I have read. I like your article. Thank you


I recently went through this same thing. Mom sold the childhood home where I grew up and got married under the huge oak. She's an avid gardener but it became too much for her to care for. Last year when I was in California I said goodbye to the house. It was very bittersweet. I took a ton of photos and my sister did a bunch of video. We put together an album for her birthday recently.

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
