52 Lists Week #12; The Things That Feel Like Home

This Week's list assignment; the things that feel like home was another challenge.  Again that literal side of my brain kept thinking that home felt like home and not much else.  

But once I let it fester for a bit I came up with a few more ideas.  I realized that home feels comfortable, I feel loved when I'm there and surrounded by my family.  Home is where I am free to be me and where I can relax and rest. 

Here are the things that feel like home:

  • Being held in my husbands arms
  • Eating food I remember my mom making when I was a child
  • Climbing into my bed after a long day
  • When I'm at peace in nature; kayaking down a brook or hiking through the woods
  • Reclining on a comfortable sofa or chair
  • Curling up in front of a fire with a comfy blanket
  • Watching my boys faces light up with smiles 
  • Holidays spent with family; no matter where we are

  2. Yes, childhood foods...I cooked a comfort food for my husband the other day and he was so excited that it was just like his mom used to make it! I used to think that idea was silly, but now that I'm "all grown up" I realize it's more about the memories and comfort those memories bring.

    1. It really is. Funny how food and music can take us back in time.

  4. Being away from home for over a year, this list was actually hard for me. I've had to make home where I was allowed to be with my health. Love your list!

    1. I can't even imagine what it must have felt like to have been away from home for so long. Hopefully your health will continue allow you to live in your home now.
