There is something about the words... coming home... that create the loveliest of images in my mind... a place of Sanctuary from the storms which batter from the outside world.
I truly believe our homes are a blank canvas in which each homemaker creates Art for those she loves. A home whose meals, and bookshelves, and colors, and garden, and art, and music, and traditions... all tell the story of the family that lives within.
If there is one feature I've noticed over the years that I have found in every home I consider warm and cozy... it is not a big house, or expensive furniture, or even peace and quiet...
