fancy friday home edition

It sounds almost cliché to say 
"Home is where the heart is"...
 but what if it's true?


After you've lived life a bit, you realize that life expands and contracts... and so do the people in your life.  For me, that's what it's all about... the people.  It doesn't matter where I am or what I am doing... as long as I am with the people I love, I am happy.  The greatest joy I have is to open my home and gather up all the folks I love... to celebrate them and care for them.  I've learned never to take a gathering of love ones, big or small, for granted.  


Family, friends, food, good drink and music... a prefect combination, indeed!


Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros sing, Home.  The chorus is: 


Ahh home.  Let me come home.
Home is wherever I'm with you.
Ahh home.  Let me go home ho-oh-ome.
Home is wherever I'm with you.




This post is part of the Fancy Friday fun hosted over at LoveFeast Table, where you're invited to share what inspires you.

  5. What a great post. Couldn't agree more, home is where your loved ones reside! The rest is just sticks and bricks!

  6. I completely agree. When my husband and I were having a hard time last year, we considered my parents home our home because that's where we could be okay, there was no fighting. It was our sanctuary. And now, we're doing so much better and our home is now our "home." A place filled with love and understanding.
    Stopping by from SITS!

  10. Is that really your front porch? I want to be in that picture! Unfortunately, my front porch faces west and gets pelted with the blazing hot southern sun all afternoon, so it's back patio living for us!
