There's a thing going around the bloggy world. A "thing" where, since October has 31 days in it, people choose one topic and blog about it for 31 days. Its sort of a challenge. I say, "CHALLENGE, ACCEPTED". After all, the best way to learn about something is to tell others about it, and there's a lot that I don't know about.
I wanted to do that.
Problem is, I missed the first 2 days of Octobre (that's how I imagine the French say it, even though I know they say it differently).
So I guess this is 29 days. Either way, I'm in. And since it's got to do with my life, and my life seems to be revolving around one word lately, that's my topic: Home.
We just bought our first home, which makes this quite appropro. But, since I didn't think anyone wanted to hear
31 29 days of babble about how I haven't decorated my home yet, I'm going to expand the topic to be all things including the word home. Home-sick. Home-work. Home-school. Home-economics. Home-wrecker. You know, whatever has to do with the word home.
Right now, our home is a crazy place. But it's also exciting, because, in case you didn't catch it, I just wrote the words,
As in, the home that belongs to us.
So exciting. So nervous-making. So stressful and lovely and awkward and full of potential. So fabulous.
Really, I can hardly stand it.
As I've mentioned before, it's as though we (Handsome & I) have two homes. If we're out to eat, and I say "I want to go home," I mean the house where we live. If we're out to eat and I say, "I miss home," I mean that lovely slice of heaven up in Pennsylvania. There's a little internal conflict, but its not much. Either place, either way, home is a lovely thing. I'm all caught up in how great Home is right now, and so that's where we'll be for the next month.
What about you? What is one place that will always be "Home" to you?
Wrapped up in excitement and packaging tape,
