I sold our home of 43 years, 7 months and 17 days.
All we have left is the memories.
And some $$$$$$.
I sold it "as is." There's no way I was going to make it pretty. Besides, it needs some major foundation work and interior updates and remodeling. The new owners are pulling the carpets out today.

On the way to the closing, I went by the house to say a prayer, as I had promised Mom. The new owners were there with the agent and we all decided to go to lunch before going to the title company for the closing.
Everything went off without a hitch. I will go by there in a couple of months to see how their remodeling progress is going. They have some wonderful plans for my old stomping grounds. I really hope they can be as happy as we all were there.
This has been a true lesson in letting go.
