May 2, 1981
We moved into our new home. Why May 2 and not May 1? Because my husband was on a business trip and I wanted us all to move in together: my older son and I spent May 1 sleeping in our office. For 32 years it has been a home, one filled with love, laughter, sorrow, many ups and just as many downs. Life has happened: we have added friends, sons have left and returned and left again. Many visitors have been welcomed - all of whom became friends. I will continue to live in this place I call home and where my roots are every bit as deep as the oak trees by its side.
