I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! And maybe today you’re out and about (or even online) taking advantage of the crazy sales that come the day after. Such a fun time of year!
As we move into the holiday season, I think more and more about home – the one where I grew up and the one I share now with my husband. I sometimes even think about Diana Ross singing “Home” in The Wiz. Or maybe that was Aysha singing that!
Like I remember my Mom doing, I try really hard to fill our house with the sights, the sounds and the smells of the holidays. We crank up the fireplace, I light all my seasonal candles, decorate like a crazy person (I’m doing 3 Christmas trees this year!) and I spend the most time in the kitchen that I do all year! It’s work, but I really enjoy it. Then, every year I remember – home is not the “stuff” or even the ambiance. It’s the people! So, as long as you’re with the people you love and who love you – you’re home!
So, today I’m sharing a layout that captures that sentiment. The “home” we made of our stateroom on a recent cruise to Alaska. It started out as just a layout about our room. But then, as I looked at the photos, rememberd and thought about a title, I realized that it was more than just a room. For the week we were on the ship, this was our home.
I hope you make the most of this beautiful time of year – wherever you find yourself spending it!
