First Step – Selling Our Home
After much consideration my husband and I have decide to sell our home to simplify our foot print, free ourselves of debt, and give our daughters an education of a life time.
It took a few days for me to fully believe selling our home is a wise decision. I thought we would hold on to it and pass it on to our kids. But now that I have taken the time to consider the pro’s and con’s – I do see this as a wise move!
My husband Christopher, and our dear friend Mike, have begun the labor of cleaning up the outside of our home, while I have begun the task of figuring out what we need to keep, what we can sell, and what we can donate. It sounds like a Clean House episode! I can’t remember how many times I’ve actually said that to people over the years. The only difference is its my home we’re over hauling, and instead of the rooms being “de-cluttered” and “re-designed”, they will be empty – in the hope that we get top dollar for our home.
We purchased our home in 2002. It was a proud moment for me. I came to America in 1998 with $60 in my pocket not knowing what to expect. I met Christopher the third day I was in the country, and a week later we were two peas in a pod, and we still are today. Well actually our pod has grown a little over the last few years and now we have a beautiful 4 year old and a two month old – both girls. Lord help Christopher! The memories that flood to mind about each room make it a little hard to let go of the house. Even as I sit here and write, I can look over and see where I gave birth to our daughter just 8 weeks ago. But the beautiful thing about letting go – is that no one can take the memories away. So happily, we let go of this great house and look forward to creating many more memories on the road.
The House Sold…
It didn’t take long for our house to sell. We had multiple offers and we are now in escrow. 40 days and counting!
Some people may ask why pack up your family and hit the open road, and how are you going to do it all? Well… Christopher and I are blessed to work together. We have always wanted to work together and have been doing so for quite some time now – and after filming a successful first season of At Home With Didiayer, we felt it would be encouraging to see how others around this great nation live. Traveling in an RV to work and live on the road for 12 months with two young girls is going to have its pro’s ad con’s – but like everything in life, it’s all about what you make of it. I look forward to sharing every step and adventure with you all.
