Pin It Forward - What Home Means to Me



What Home Means to Me



My home is…

Where my true loves live
Where my heart is

Shelter from the rain
A peaceful place, away from a chaotic world





Where I cherish the past
Where I live for today
Where I hope for the future

A place of nourishment for my soul, my mind and my body
A place of laughter and tears

Where family and friends gather
Where beautiful memories are made






A calm place to create
An invigorating place for inspiration

Where I lay my head, in my cozy bed
Where I watch old movies, read book after book

Where I pen a poem, write a letter
Where I sketch a thought, paint a memory






A place of passion
A place of privacy

A world filled with collections; shells, keys, driftwood…
A treasure chest of all my favorite things

Where there are dear ones to hold
Where young ones grow






A place filled with flowers
A place close to the sea

Where I long to be
Where life begins and ends

The slayer of haunted memories
The champion of my cause






A place for dreaming with my eyes wide open
Where wishes come true and disappointments fade

Where a boy grows into a man
Where one man is my world

My world, my home...
Where my deepest love awaits.



I want to thank you all for waiting patiently to see my Pin It Forward post. I hope it has touched you, and perhaps you've found a connection to me through these words and images. That's my sincere wish.

I would like to thank the beautiful Victoria of sfgirlbybay and the inspiring (and addicting) new site, Pinterest, for this marvelous opportunity. This project was a complete joy to work on. If you'd like, you can see my Pin It Forward board with links to all the photos here.

Last Friday, the lovely and talented Sara of slim arts girl shared her excellent inspirations. Tomorrow, I look forward to visiting the delightful and creative Carol of Red Glasses and will surely find more wonderfully inspirational thoughts.

As always, thank you for being you, dear readers…xo
