Embarking on a New Adventure

Ballentine-Spence House in downtown Fuquay-VarinaWe have been preparing our home and ourselves for our next adventure. Our home, the Ballentine-Spence House was put on the market yesterday and is already under contract! We are thrilled to share this beautiful property with its next family and we look forward to seeing their journey through the website.

As we prepare to leave the house we thought would be our “forever home” we remember the joy of looking ahead and embarking on a new adventure. I feel like Bilbo Baggins, from the Hobbit movie, about to embark on a journey that will change our lives in another new and amazing way.

While we look ahead, I would like to take a moment to look over the past four years and remember the joys we have experienced and will cherish for the rest of our lives. The elegant and warm Christmas parties, fun community garden parties, hilarious murder mystery parties, and exciting Mistletoe Madness events.

Our first event in the house was our daughter’s 13th birthday. We hadn’t moved in yet, so we improvised with borrowed tables, cushions on the floor and fun outdoor games in the gardens. Our first Christmas included 17 friends and family members baking cookies, decorating the trees, and reading “Twas the night before Christmas…” in the library.

We bid a very fond farewell to all of  our wonderful friends we have made and we look forward to sharing our new adventures with you!

My favorite adventure phrase is, “We are going on a bear hunt… and we are going to catch a big one!” While we don’t know exactly what our future has in store for us, we know we are off on another bear hunt and can’t wait to discover what it will be.

Wishing you a beautiful day,
