I relatively recently discovered my love for my own home, here in the Utah mountains.
Not that I disliked it before, but now I feel a certain loyalty to it.
So when people criticize this place (which is unnecessarily often), I have to bite my tongue--
because I have a very long list of the things I love about it.
My life with my family, the friends I have met, and the earth that surrounds me
are so so important to me, so I will most likely always love my first home best.
That said, a friend told me about her Georgia home this weekend.
And I remembered when I went to Charleston for the first time, and to Savannah.
And if I had to choose another home for right now, I would choose the South.
Because even though my hair does funny things in humidity, I liked it so much there.
I don't claim to know it well or to understand the marbled culture,
but it felt like it could be a home. Comfortable like that.
And I wouldn't mind the warmer weather this morning, to be honest.
What about you?
What do you love about your home now?
Is there a place you'd like to live?
