In the past three years I've called a lot of places home but what is home really? Home is a place for nourishment. A place to relax. A place where you can let your guard down. A place for security, a place where you're always welcomed. Although I've lived in many places… large homes, small homes, homes I've owned, homes I've lost… gentrified homes… suburb homes… the house above is where I'll always call home. It has been in my family nearly 60 years and has seen the best and worst of times. It was partially built by my grandfather and is where my 92 year old grandmother lives today. I've eaten many meals in this home, learned many lessons and received many whoopins. Although it's been said many times, home is about the people and I'm grateful to my grandparents for making a sanctuary for my family to call home.
