Since I was tagged by Heather and asked to make this my first post -- here goes!

What is home?

My home is not a place, it is people.
Lois McMaster Bujold, "Barrayar", 1991

Home is not a place, that's my house. I feel at home when I am with my best friends and my dearest family. Recent events in my life have made me re-evaluate those people I surround myself with, and eliminate those that are not positive influences. Home is a cozy, comfortable feeling; a feeling of being safe and secure. The people in my life that I choose to 'let in' make me feel at home on a daily basis and I love each and every one of them -- the list is small, but the knowledge that I can be myself and still be appreciated makes me feel at home. And I love that.

Yay! I'm so excited you made this, and that I'm your first comment. I totally agree with what you said about home. As we both know, I've reevaluated the people I surround myself with lately also and so glad to be finished with the toxic ones. I'm happy with those that are now in my life, including YOU. I appreciate being able to be myself with the people in my life. Yay for good friends and dear family. Now I'm off to check on our Kelly Clarkson tickets!

Hey! I decided to comment on this one again. The picture reminds me of a book called Summer Sisters by Judy Blume. After the other one, you should definitely read it. It's a wonderful story and HAS to be read during summer. I think you'll like it.
