Grateful for home

Today I’m over at (in)courage, revealing a smattering of photos from our new home in Oregon. And as I quietly think during the unwrapping of plates and breaking down of cardboard boxes, I’m also sharing a few thoughts about what home actually means. From the post:

Where are you most at home? Is it in your home?

“I’ve thought a lot about this over the years, as my family and I have lived and traveled all over the world. And this summer, we moved yet again. This time, to a brand new town. …

“Nesting is in my blood, and I love making a home for my family. But I’m pretty sure there’s a home waiting for me that’s complete with a wraparound porch and a working stone fireplace, and it’s situated near crystal clear waters on a sapphire street — because it’s not going to happen here.”

Head here to read the rest and to interact in the comments.
