Where my heart is

They say Home is where the heart is..

Well right now I am pretty home sick
This is where I grew up, I lived here until I went away for college

I lived here from the time Brooke was born up until 2012 when we packed everything in a moving truck and moved thousands of miles from home and i can't link ya to the story bout that because a lot of blog posts got deleted... LONG story and I am still not sure why;) 

Tonight I would love to walk in my mom's house, 
*sit on their couch, 
*listen to them chat about their days, 
*find out what is happening in their one horse town, 
*listen to them laugh at something Brooke does, 
*listen to them talk to their grand kids, 
*get a hug from them, 
*have a cup of tea with mom and her best friend, 
*sing some songs with the guitars out,  
*go out to visit friends, 
*stay up late laughing and talking and just doing nothing.. 
*eat lots of home made food 
*my moms bread
*visit with my grandpa
*eat some fried chicken from the nearby restaurant
*fight with my brother( we still do) 
* go to church with them 

To put it lightly homesickness usually passes quickly, but this has been hanging on for a few days now, I think its bc my hubby is gone home for work this week ,  I am just starting my new job so even if I could have gone, I wouldn't have taken time of already.. but I need me some family time. I am not sure if my family is planning to come here this year, we can only hope. 

I know my family is my hubby and my daughter now, but I can still wish for home time.

If I did go home, i would want to be back here.. 
Is home really where your heart is, or is your heart at home? 


  1. This is so beautiful! I battle the same questions! I haven't been home in 5 years now and it often grabs at my heart. What I can say is that I know that even if I could afford to go back, I'd never go without my Hubby and kids....not even for a visit because they are my home now and nothing would ever feel the same! So I'd say that home is where your heart is!

  2. Thanks for sharing your story. I can so relate. Home is where my family(hubby and girls) are but I am about 23 hours of straight driving away from my parents and siblings. I miss them and long to be closer to them. I feel like they are missing out on knowing my girls and my girls are missing out on knowing my amazing parents. In a dream world we would all live close to each other.

  3. I was gone on a press trip all week last week. I was so happy to finally be home. I'm definitely a home body. Great post.

  4. It's hard, looks like a beautiful place to live! There are times I wish I could move back home with my mom too. I miss those days but now at 40 and 5 kids I need to enjoy what's before me. :)

  5. Those pictures are so pretty! Where is it? My mom still lives in the 40 acres of woods where I grew up - I love it there.

  6. I can see why you are homesick. It looks like a really beautiful place to live.

  8. I would love to live near water as I live in the desert

  9. Beautiful place and so true, home is where the heart is. Sorry you are home sick but you have some great memories it sounds like. -Lisa-

  10. what a sweet post :) I think everyone can be a little homesick every now and then.

  11. There's no place like home. I agree that home is where the heart is, but I still miss the place of my childhood.


Thanks for the blogging Love
