Last night as the plane was descending into Sea-Tac airport I was thinking was nice it was to be going home.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy traveling and I was glad I was able to go to my grandmother's funeral.  There's just something about going home.  And there is was.  I was going HOME.  There was a period of a few months where I wasn't feeling like this was home and I was torn about that.  Where was home?  MA where I grew up and had moved from?  WA where I was living now?  Somewhere else?  I've called several places home over the years.  None of them really felt like home anymore.  But as I was sitting in the airplane, in the middle seat peering out the window over my neighbor it hit me.  I was happy to be heading home.  Home to my husband.  Home to my furbabies.  Home to our house.  Home to my friends.  Home to overcast 60 degree weather.

Home Sweet Home

I know this isn't my permanent home.  Heaven is.  But while I"m here on earth, this is a pretty good place to be.

It's also pretty awesome to come home to a clean house...The Man cleaned before I got home.  He's definitely a keeper!  I love that man!


  1. I may have only lived in Washington for 4 months of my 28 year life... but I consider it home, too!

    There's just something about that state.

  2. I had a week where I was really missing my "home" back in Virginia, and it hits me everynow and then that no- California is my new home- with my husband and my pups... it's such an awkward feeling to have a house, but be "home"less at the same time.

  3. dropping by from MilSpouse round-up!
    I love your honesty :) I'm looking forward to following you.

  4. I am also dropping by from the MilSpouse roundup. I can say the same thing .. that it's hard for me to figure out where "home" really is since the military moves us around so much!

    But I think ... Drew and I have decided that CA is home. Too bad we're in Maine and not sure WHEN we can get back to San Diego.

  5. What is it about airplanes or going away on a trip that brings moments of clarity like that? :) I love those moments. They are usually the highlight of the trip!

  6. I know what you mean about not knowing where home is. I've lived in so many different places that were all home at the time, but don't mean a whole lot to me now. But I do consider my current house my home, and I hope it will stay home for awhile.

    Great post! And great to see you on the mil spouse roundup. Have a super weekend!
