Before closing the door to our little apartment for the final time, we started a new tradition. One that we plan on carrying on to every place that becomes our home together. We carved our initials in the master bedroom closet in a far away corner. One you would have to bend down and peek under the shelf to find.
It was symbolic of the fact that the little apartment meant more to us than just being our first home together. We shared so many special memories and a whole lot of firsts there that we will never forget. We had to leave a little piece of us behind with the hope that, if someone were to find it one day, that they might believe in the little saying "home is where the heart is."
