We went home for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. I hadn't been home in a couple of years. My Dad still lives in the house I grew up in. I was thinking about how it always feels good to go home and sort of "touch base". That's kind of how it feels to me. No matter where you grew up there is just no place quite like home.
I was driving over to my Dads and heard this song. I've always loved it but it really touched me at that moment. I decided to take some pictures this time and brought a few old ones home with me. I didn't have time to really pick out all the pictures I would have liked to post but got a few. I wish I had more of my sister Julie and neice Faith. Maybe that will be another post for another time.
I have so many memories in this house. We moved in there when I was 5 years old and I lived there until I married Mark. My Mom is no longer with us but she is such a big part of this house I feel lucky I can still go back and touch base with my childhood. So many firsts in this house. Mark picked me up for our first date here :)
I know I've been a little "Smilebox" crazy lately but here is just one more....
