Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. I started participating last week. For more doors, or to join in, check out Norm 2.0’s weekly post.
This is the last picture I took before leaving our house in Belmont Massachusetts last year. It was the night before we got on the plane to California to begin our lives here. We stayed in an airport hotel. The house was empty: all the furniture (including the beds) was on a truck.
We bought this house when we were expecting our son in 2003 because we needed more space. We lived in it for 12 years and 3 months. It was the only house our son knew, until last year. It was a colonial built in 1929, one of many on the suburban street.
I posted the picture to Instagram and Facebook on July 24, 2015, with the caption, “good night.”
I’ve been thinking about the move on the occasion of its 1-year anniversary. I definitely feel more settled here now, and I like the weather and the landscapes better in CA. But I loved a lot about our old house, and was sad to say goodbye.
