Once upon a time it was 2011 and we were getting ready for our first PCS together. We traveled to San Antonio and bought our first house. On the day we closed, our realtor snapped a picture of us out front. It took about five seconds total to walk to the front, stand together and smile. Snap. That's it.
Now it's four years later and we are bidding adieu to our first home. It's sold. The new owner is happy to move in, and although I'm happy to leave Texas, I would be lying if I said I'm not a wee bit sad to leave the home where we've made so many memories. And so, we asked someone to take our picture out front. I thought it would be fun to compare our picture four years ago to one now. Just the two of us DINKS versus the two of us (decidedly not DINKs anymore) PLUS two kids PLUS two dogs.
But as it turns out, this picture took about ten minutes to get. And I think that pretty much sums up how much our life has changed in the past four years.
Aaaaand, this is the best we could do. Things change.
But we love change, so it's good.
