Well, it's all over but the crying. Four days, four offers. Each of them more than the asking price. We were both blown away by all the compliments and by how eager all of the hopeful buyers were.

I was surprised at myself for how bad I felt about the bidders who didn't make it. Our next project is straining our finances well past the point of what's sensible, and we approached the sale with little more than a hope that we would end up with as much cash in our pockets as possible. It didn't occur to me that we'd end up breaking somebody's heart.

I'll feel sad about leaving this place, but Maiden Rock, Wisconsin is calling our names. We've found another home; truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. It's closer to what we've dreamed of than anything I'd thought possible. Now it's up to us to make the dream come true.
