Feels Like Home

Journal Page

I am a firm believer that home doesn't just have to be were you hang your hat or live ..........like.............. It

Feels like home when I see my friend Pat, even when I don't see her for a few months.
No matter how long we are apart it always feels like home to me. Like we have never been a part.  We just pick up were we left off.  Feels like home...

Feels like home when I go to Port Townsend WA to Artfest even though I am thousands of miles away from home it feels so familiar to me with all my friendships I created through that journey. Feels like home.....

Feels like home when I go to Ocean City Md to our condo on the beach. And I hear the Ocean waves. Feels like home.....

Feels like home when I go to a Wilson High School Football game. Feels like home...

Feels like home when I go to Panera's and have dinner with my sisters, daughter and grandson. Feels like home....


Feels like home wherever I am with Steve. Feels like home.....

Say Happy Birthday to Steve! It will be his 51st Birthday week!!
We celebrate Birthday weeks in this household.
(Use to be month but we had to cut down)

Don't forget to visit everyone at PPF!

This week I am reading 2nd book of the Hunger Games.
 and listening to Ryan Adams new album Ashes and Fire
Favorite songs are Rocks and Do I Wait.



Have a fantastic week!!!

Beautiful artwork, this would be awesome to hang on the wall like a modern "Home sweet home" saying. ^-^
Really love the colors of the sky and all the swirls in it, and that it matches her coat wondefully!
