I went on a family trip over the weekend. We stayed with family too. It was nice to see everyone but I was also looking forward to my old town. We moved last October and in a lot of ways it still just doesn’t feel like home here. We’ve visited the old town 4 times and this time, I was surprised to realize it does feel like home. I didn’t just miss the comfort of my house and bed, but I missed the town and even all it’s awful roads. Whether you’re going on a vacation, or just leaving your home for work, I think leaving every once in awhile allows us to appreciate it more.
