I thought it would be fitting to do a post on here of the official before and after shots of our little house that I grew to love.
This house was ours because we failed to pray, to listen and to obey. But God allowed us to have this house and used it for His glory and I am so thankful for it.
While I am not proud of the way that we came to own it, I am proud of this little house. Proud of the hard work that we put into it, proud to be a part of helping to clean up a cute little street and I will miss it. I will miss the friendships that were made, my awesome garden with the best dirt a girl with a green thumb could every hope for, the first house that Allegra has ever known...I will miss it.
I never thought I would say that.
Here are the "Before" and "After" photos...they are shocking to me.
|This is the outside--the before is the perfect representation because this is a screen shot that I took from Google Street View|
|This is the Dining/Living Room|
|Our Bedroom - (previously referred to as PeptoBismol)|
|And the bountiful Peach tree|
|My Tomato Jungle and garden|
|It was here at this little house where we introduced big brother to little sissy|
I love this little house. Excited for what the future holds.
Photo Credit: Stephanie Wiarda our neighbor and realtor took our official "after" pictures for the listing. She was persistent, wise and patient...helping us through 3 failed deals, and eventually getting us to the lesser known "4th time's a charm". Anyone looking for a realtor in the Portland area? I highly recommend her.
