SOLD!

I am on to a new chapter in my life. I closed on the sale of my little pink house yesterday. Dan and I are creating a life of our own together in the historic district of Heritage Hill in Grand Rapids. We both love the architecture and character of old houses. My pink house as it has become know, has only been pink for 3 years, prior to that it was a beautiful butter yellow for 10 years. It was built in the late 1930's & has some charming details both inside and out as well. This house has been good to me and for me. It embraced me. I really spread my wings here and grew not only my business but also myself. I created a haven for myself, cozy spots inside and pretty flower gardens overflowing outside. I had the opportunity to decorate the interior exactly how I wanted - a dream fulfilled! This house has been filled with many friends, family, clients and kitties over the years. Best of all it is here that Dan & I started our life together. But the walls don't hold the memories my heart does.
So now on Sept 24 I will turn it over to the next family. It will embrace them & they will embrace it. So long old friend.

Oh CJ, it does my heart good to hear how you've come to see your little pink house/home and the journey you're on to your new home with Dan. You are so special and deserve all the happiness in the world.

Love, Sue
