I am home! This past week I have put on a number of miles on our Honda Accord. It will be time for another oil change. Last weekend my husband and I went to a great Bed & Breakfast "Up North" to celebrate our anniversary. It was a great time away (without the girls) need I say more!
Then, on Monday morning I jumped in the car with the girls and drove "home" to Pennsylvania. We made it after the 11 hour drive. This is something that I don't do that often, but I'm very glad I did. I made this trip to say "good-bye" to a very dear Uncle of mine who doesn't have much time left. I knew that I wouldn't have any regrets about making this trip.
With being away this week it has really made me think about "home". I think it also has a lot to do with the fact that I'm reading a book called, "Dwelling". It just really makes me think about my home - from decorating to what kind of feelings does my home communicate. There is something about being at my home that just gives me comfort - from sleeping in my own bed, to having my things around me, to the coffee being prepared the way I like it. Also, it makes me think about providing an environment for my husband and girls where love and belonging are present - that "safe haven" for all of us.
