When I moved to Ventura, my furniture was in place, but everything else was in boxes. One of the first things I did was to hang some of my paintings, and that made it feel like home.
I’ve been thinking about what makes a place home. Is it being surrounded by your possessions? Is it becoming familiar with the neighborhood? Is it connections to community, family or friends?
Or perhaps you feel at home every place you go.
What’s your take on it? What makes a place feel like home for you? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please share them with us in the comments section below.
With love and appreciation,
