When you’re away from home, what person, thing, or place do you miss the most?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us HOME.
Where do I begin? What don’t I miss when I’m away? Am I away often? No, but that one day a week I do have to go in the office – I look forward to missing my sweet home, and its sweet inhabitants.
The staircase photo was taken yesterday 10.18.13. It is significant to me because it leads to my deck which leads to my kitchen! The Kitchen is where our family of 4 spends the most time together. Each of us tend to venture into our own little rooms once we are finished eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner as a family – so I, as an old soul, an old woman (26 is old!), and a Mom who can’t wrap her mind around the fact that her tiny tots are (who aren’t tiny anymore) growing up – clings onto the 30-45 minutes when the four of us are spending time together without the interruptions of tv, internet, and of course, life.
And this has nothing to do with this post… but my random brain felt the need:
To my husband – I know it feels like everything isn’t going our way but the most wonderful thing about our life, and especially us, is that we have each other. I know some days I can be extremely hard to love but because you love me unconditionally I am able to persevere. That is what makes our relationship strong. Us. You, and me. We’re going to get through this small bump. I promise you.
To my two beautiful tiny souls – My Ying and My Yang – the two of you help me to fight hard every day. I have worked hard for the both of you because you deserve it. Becoming a young Mom at 18 was not something I had planned, but I could never ever let you feel the repercussions of it. I worked hard in my career, moving up one proverbial ladder rung at a time, in order to give you this amazing life. You will never know anything else than what you know now. Seeing you at ages 6 & 7 makes me proud. The both of you are wise beyond your years, and I don’t think you’ll ever know just how much you’ve taught me about life, myself, and the world.
