Farewell!

This house was home to many many wonderful memories to us!

I am so grateful that we found this home the first day we came to Orderville. Our friends Brent and Chantelle drove us around after the interview was over to show us some houses that were up for rent. We looked at a few that were ok... But the moment we saw this house, I knew I had to call the second we got home! I am so glad I did. We were there for 4 years and it definitely served us well. Plus, we had amazing landlords, that are now our adopted grandparents. There were so many fun little things about that home that I will never forget...

The AMAZING view off of my back porch. Dallin and I loved to go exploring back there in Norman's old barn. We always found the coolest stuff! And I loved our old fashion BBQ too! I never baked some bread in it like I wanted too... Oh well...


The sweet colors of the Kitchen. They actually kind of grew on me. :)


The quirks about the kitchen. I always thought this little shelving unit but the sink was so cute. :) But there were only three plugs in the kitchen and you had to use adapters on all of them. Also the washer was upstairs (you had to reach the cord across the kitchen to plug it in) and the dryer was downstairs! (OK... I am not going to miss that! :) The house was built before either of them were invented, so they tried to fit them in where they could.


The old fashion door knobs. The one in the bathroom had an awesome keyhole too.


All of the closet space! This house made use of every nook and cranny! If I ever build a house, I definitely learned a thing or two about storage!


My Front room. I loved it. Big. Open. Loved the huge front window. Both of my babies had lots of pictures taken in front of this window. It's a great "newborn baby" window because it lets in great light! Also loved the fireplace! That thing gave out great heat! And Dallin gave lots of great concerts on the step. :) Also loved the fun window on the front door. And the cool arch you went under when you came into the house. Always wanted to hang mistletoe there. :)



On the last day, after cleaning everything up, Dallin, Allison and I had a little picnic in the kitchen. Jeff was at school. :( But it was a fun little last memory.


This little home will always have a special place in our hearts!
Farewell 71 W. 100 S.!

Hey, you finally blogged! Go you!

Great post, such great memories in that little old house - for us too. It's fitting that you paid it a proper tribute.

Your first "home" always holds a special place in your heart. I'll be sad when we leave our little apartment. How great that you captured all the silly things you experienced!

I totally dig the colors in the kitchen too! Congrats on the new home. Are you still in Orderville?
I want to live there so bad. or Toquerville or Kanab? Love the sweet small town feel. If you hear of a job in Public Relations or Drug Prevention you gotta tell me!
