What brings YOU home?

You've heard the sayings..."home is where the heart is", "there is no place like home"...."home sweet home"... way more than the four walls that surround you or the roof over your head.  Home to me is whatever brings you back to your core, the real you, the you that helps you feel your best, the things that make you feel, that remind you of what matters...the things that make you happy, or make you feel true, pure love. Nowadays we are all so easily distracted, running around, losing ourselves in the everyday mundane question to you is...what brings you back home? Here are just a few things that help me get back home, have touched my core, or have made me feel....

Home to me is running... I mean its the tried and true....It does all of the above.  Restarts a funky engine, helps me think, helps me refocus, gives me the time and energy to understand and be patient, the list goes on and makes me the best me I can be.  It brings me home.

Home to me is something I see that evokes a happy tear because it is so darn sweet.

Home could be something that stops you in your tracks and makes you realize how valuable everyday is, how you could lose everything in a split second.  How you should let your loved ones KNOW they are loved...because you never know when or if you will get a second chance to do that....

 Home to me is being inspired by someone who works so hard to get where she wants to go.  Who allows you to see that hard work does pay off and actually makes it seem like its attainable to ANYONE.  You have to read her whole story to understand how truly amazing this mom, runner and wife is. 

Home to me is my daughter coming up when she hears that I'm having a difficult time being sick.  She comes in my room and starts rubbing my head singing..."Twinkle, twinkle, little star...." 

Home is in her eyes, her laugh, her love for others.

Home to me is  watching my son grow into a little man.  Its watching how happy and at peace he is.  Home is him reminding me everyday the simple things in life.  Home is when he blurts out a story and makes me belly laugh.  

Home to me is Scott. Seeing how much he is still growing, knowing how much life has kicked him in the ass and how he still gets back up...and is sweet about it!  Home is when he makes me laugh, when he snuggles, and when he just holds me, when he does the little but big thoughtful things....and when he cleans the 

The Boyz cleaning the floor...wasn't kidding!

Home to me is music.  I love all kinds of music...and it has a unique power over my mood!  I love Sara Bareilles' music and her shown in this video!  She is awesome and so real in concert...and can't wait to see her again...Her concert brought me home.

So what brings YOU home?


  1. What an awesome post! Very sweet. Thank you for mentioning my wife's marathon video ... she brings me home!

  2. Love this happy post! Home to me is all those things too, and the family ranch, as the 5th generation I just feel such a connectedness here, such a sense of this is where I belong, my soul is happy here

  3. Thank you for such a beautiful post and I am so honored to be included in it!! My husband, my kids, my parents, my running, my faith, my friends, a good book, my favorite hoodie, a favorite meal, the perfect movie... these are all some things that bring me home. :)
    Thanks again! Hugs!

  4. What a great post!!! There is so much I treasure but what brings me home most is my family!

  5. Home to me is the chattery, happy chaos of the kitchen on a school morning :) And then coming home to the quieter house and snuggling with my 2-year old and feeling her love :)

    And thanks so much for your kind words today :) They are appreciated more than you know :)

  6. such an incredibly sweet post! i love it! home to me is my pup...coming home after a long day at work and just cuddling with her on the couch the rest of the night. brings me so much peace!

  7. Great post! I agree with the husband and daughter... especially now that we're far from the rest of our family. There are also a number of foods that take me "home", like slow-cooked chili or oatmeal-raisin cookies. :)

    1. Yummy! I'm guessing fresh baked chocolate chips would bring me home too!!

  8. Such a sweet post, Annette. I have to say nothing is really as important as my little family. Mom is a big one for me, too. It has been really stressful buying and selling a house at the same time, but my mom always makes me feel better.

    I am glad to see Scott getting a shout-out! He is one of the sweetest and most hard-working guys I have ever met. You married a good one. :)
