At Home


I am so happy to be home, I honestly didn't realize how much I had missed it until I got here and started settling in.  It is so fun to spend time with family and to know that I don't have to fit everything into a weekend visit.  There is time to relax and just enjoy being together.

I'm also realizing the little things I've missed.  My own bed.  My nearly silent dishwasher.  My own car.  The view from my back porch.  Having my full wardrobe in one place.  Shoe options. 

One thing that hasn't changed, I can't spend enough time with Miss M and Tiny T.  I haven't convinced T to stand still for photos yet, but Miss M let me grab a couple while we were running around the yard (my own yard!) on Saturday.

What things do you miss when you are away from home?  What is the first thing you want to do when you get back home?

I'm in love with this song.

I remember how much I used to love to go home and sleep in my bed. HOME has changed though and when I visit my parents it feels foreign. I miss the bed I share with my husband...our house...our shower...etc. But it's the same thought. Your niece is so cute. Let me know if you want me to do anything with that photo you commented about.

Glad you are home. When away from my home I miss our yard and the trees and the comfort that comes with being in a home decorated for our style; and my scraproom.

Oh, god! I always miss my own bed! There's nothing better than crawling into my own bed after being away from home. Glad you're home and safe and sound!

There's nothing better than the feeling of being home!
When I'm away, it's my garden that I miss most and I rush outside the minute I'm back to see what has changed out there.

So glad you are safe and well back at home. I will ponder your question and come back!

I miss my babies the moment I leave. They're my world- my heart is in pieces when I'm away--

oh yay oh yay oh yay!!!
SO happy you are home safe and sound ... : )
and settling back in with everyone and everything you hold so dear ... *sigh*

i love being at home ... and no matter how long it is that i am away, i so love coming down the road and seeing our home and walking in the door ... just makes everything right in my heart ... : )

i miss all the familiar sights and sounds and smells (yes, even that musty smell that only a really old house can have after being closed up for more than a day ; ) ... the first thing i usually do is stand in the dining area, take a deep breath and give thanks ... xo

say, is it thursday yet?
i can't wait for thursdays, you know ... ; )

XOXO
