 This morning we left the magical mountains of New Hampshire, filled to the brim with the sweet love of family (and lots of baked goods!), and made the 7 hour trek home. My children and I have become champion travelers together. Forget squabbling. None- just fabulous conversations, quiet reading and fun music sharing. How did I get so lucky? Well, it might not be all luck. I'm working so hard at this solo parenting gig. It's often a struggle and takes tons of energy, but then we have two long car trips that show me just how well we all are doing together, and I'm energized and proud of our happy threesome.

This afternoon we drove through torrential downpours and hailstorms only to arrive home to sunny skies, happy cats, thrilled chickens and a garden that was finally ready to offer up dinner. I'm tired, but content.  I'm home.
 What is it that makes coming home feel so GOOD? What is your favorite part of returning to your nest?

  1. I am about 10 hours away from home and I miss "HOME" and my routine. Usually it is my bed but the bed currently isn't bad.

  2. I love slipping into my bed!
    We are about to embark on a road trip, and I am already thinking about how good it will feel to be home~ LOL
    You are doing great!

  3. Returning home is wonderful, even that 'unlived in' house smell that goes away so soon. The best part is when I've made the effort to clean and tidy (and put fresh sheets on the bed), and opening the door to a welcoming space that doesn't require immediate work!
