Home is Wherever I’m With You
As we’ve been preparing for our big cross-country move and packing up I’ve been feeling really nostalgic. This is the only house my husband and I have lived in together. It was where we brought our son home to after he was born. This is our home. Though I’ve complained over the years about the lack of air conditioning, or a dishwasher, or light, I’ve become really attached to our little apartment.
And then today rolled around. It’s the anniversary of the day my husband proposed to me, and while I’ve been packing up too-small baby clothes, and artwork, and everything else imaginable, I’ve come to a realization–this building isn’t home. It’s the place where my home is, but that’s because my home is my family! And my family is coming with me back East. I’ll miss this city and our friends and the atmosphere here, but I’m taking the most important things with me. That is so comforting.
So, I’ve made this little printable to put up in our new home to help me remember what I’ve learned today: home is where my family is. If you’d like to use it, you’re more than welcome to!
