The first house you buy is always special. For some people it may be something to laugh about years later but for us our first house will always be my favorite. Realistically it wasn’t right for a growing family but it will always hold a special place in my heart!
I had a local artist do a painting of our first house. It now hangs in the kitchen and makes me smile every day. A house painting is also a great gift – I found an artist on ebay who did a watercolor for my parents and sister as a Christmas gift a couple years ago. It made for a special present!
