When you’re a traveler at heart, when you’ve moved a lot, or even if you just moved once, you probably have thought to yourself, ‘what is home, anyways?’ Personally, after having lived abroad, having friends and family all over the world, and realizing that home can be so much more than an address. Really, home is a feeling. These are some of mine, but I’d love to hear yours in the comments below!
- The smell of freshly baking cookies.
- Comfortable silence with loved ones.
- When the wifi connects automatically.
- Where pants are optional and blankets are plentiful.
- Waiting at the gate of an airport, after security of course.
- Driving in the car with the windows down, some good music on, and the sun shining and warming your skin.
- Your pillow and your bed being there for you to rest your head on.
- A good book and a hammock.
- Watching tv with someone you love and listening to them laugh.
- The first sip of a warm cup of tea or coffee.
- When you call a friend to catch up, and they pick up before their voicemail does.
- Your parent’s pride.
- Knowing where the spare key is hidden.
- Getting “snail mail” with your name on it.
- The moment you let out a contented sigh at the end of a long day.
- The place you don’t want to escape from.
What does home mean to you?
