Home is a funny thing. I have lived in Nashville, TN for the past 6 years, & it is the longest place I have ever lived since I left my childhood home at 18. Nashville truly is my home, the place where I am raising two adorable pugs with my smart & hunky husband, the city where I got my first real job, & the place where I have grown an incredible amount.
However, deep in my heart, is a country girl from Arkansas. This past weekend, I took my husband to a place of my youth - the Buffalo River in north central Arkansas. We floated the river with my mother, spending our days taking in the beauty of the rock cliffs shooting up around us, & our nights staring up into the deep black sky - so clear we could see the Milky Way. Driving back home Monday, my husband & I decided to avoid the same stretch of interstate that we have seen so many times on our drives between my parents' home in AR & Nashville (I swear I've memorized every sign along the way!), & opted for winding back roads instead. The one lane highway connected tiny knots of towns - each with their own diner & antique shop that I was dying to stop in to get a peek! This slice of Arkansas certainly is a different way of life than the hustle & bustle of Nashville (one town we drove through had a population of only 33!), but it is these two pieces of me that make up my home.
What is home to you? The place you grew up? Where you are now? Some place you are dreaming of creating for yourself in the future?
