I'm so excited that I'll be going home to Kentucky soon. I haven't been home for a visit since...well, I can't remember when! The last couple of holidays with my parents, they've actually come to our house. And usually, I go home in April but didn't make that trip this year.
Once I hit Nashville, I always look forward to heading up I-65 toward Bowling Green. As I make that drive, I start to see the rolling hills that remind me so much of home. For some reason, it makes me breathe deeper, easier.
There's just something special about going home, even though I've been in Georgia for over 25 years. My parents are in the same house they've been in for about 20 years, so that definitely feels like home. Then there are always the familiar routines: my dad making me breakfast, watching old movies with my mom, sleeping in my old bed.
Here's my family (and my husband's parents) on one of their recent visits to my house. We went out to Mimi's Cafe to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday as well as my son's high school graduation.
I can't wait to go home! What about you? Is there somewhere you love to go that's home?
