Home and Heart

A house is not a home without a heart.  Living so far away from my family and most of my friends, I strive to do my best to make my tiny one-bedroom apartment as homey as possible.  I clean it, I organize it, I make sure it is as warm and inviting as my parents' home is when I go visit them. I put all my heart into it and I love it!

It's important for me to feel like where I am is home. I like to feel connected with my environment- like I belong, and I like others who visit me to feel comfortable and welcome too.

But "home" is not just a place, but a feeling too.  It's a feeling that I'm lucky to be able to carry with me wherever I go.  So, I've made this print in honor of "home" as a feeling.

Of course, it's available in the shop.

I hope you are feeling home. Always. And wherever you go.
