we came a long way in the nearly a decade that we lived here (we moved in in 2001, but i couldn't locate any of those pix this morning). i cried my eyes out the first time we looked at the house. it was a 70s nightmare through and through, green countertops that on top of it were for freakishly short people and came up to about my knees (only a slight exaggeration). but we built on and we built a whole flock of little buildings in the garden. and we shared many a laugh and dinners and countless bottles of wine with friends. and now it's time to move on to the next chapter and i find myself crying as we leave too.
the house (and my photography) have come a long way!
