As 2015 comes to a close, I am thinking about so many things. How 27 years ago we moved to Arizona from New York and bought a home. It was pretty when we arrived, but we made some beautiful upgrades over the years that made this place a home for our family.
Our occupants have been many through the years. My stepson, Jared lived with us for a while (twice actually!) and my mother-in-law too. Jacklyn came back with her family for a brief time and when I think of this address, it brings a smile to my face. I loved this home (even though the kitchen needed to be bigger) it was the central gathering for our family. My stepdaughter and her family visited from NY on many occasions adding to the memories. We have made such wonderful friends here that we will always keep in close contact with.
At the end of January 2016, we will be leaving this home to a new owner who will make her own memories. I hope she will be as happy as we have been. Our temporary address will be with my brother-in-law and mother-in-law until our Italian Passports arrive. We will always come back and drive past this address and smile. Here are some pictures of highlights throughout the years at 18623 N. 43 Street, Phoenix. Looking forward to our Italy adventure in 2016.
