While we are very excited about the sale of our home and our move to the west coast there are many things we will miss about living in Vermont. We have called Vermont home for over twenty years and it was definitely a wonderful place to live and raise a family.
My husband designed our home and we had it built almost twenty years ago. The new owners might not appreciate all the work we did in creating this beautiful homestead. It was rough land when we started and we’ve created gardens galore around the house.
We have had wonderful wildlife around our home over the years, everything from beautiful birds to amazing owls. Having less wildlife around us is one of the many things will miss about living in Vermont. We’ve had coyotes show up outside our window. Numerous bears have stopped by check and see if we have birdfeeders out. We always take our feeders in at night but after this daytime visit we stopped feeding the birds altogether!
Living closer to our four grown children will be a real treat but leaving our friends and family here is so hard. No more wood stacking parties. Our evenings sitting around the campfire and gazing at the stars are coming to an end.
Our home has been a wonderful place for friends and family to gather. I will miss the large meals around our table.
Friends will be missed and the good times we’ve had hiking together.Living surrounded by woods and peace and quiet will definitely be one of the things we will miss about living in Vermont. I enjoy sitting on our deck and watching the birds and listening to the stream. Such a peaceful and relaxing spot.
Being able to walk out our door and head out into the woods on snowshoes will also be one the many things we will miss about living in Vermont.
Rather than focus on all the things we will miss about living in Vermont what we need to do is focus on the adventures that await us in the Pacific Northwest. There will be new places to discover, new hikes to enjoy and a much closer proximity to our children and grandchildren. That we are looking forward to!
