"Makes Me Smile" Monday

"If solid happiness we prize,
Within our breast this jewel lies,
And they are fools who roam;
The world has nothing to bestow,
From our own selves our bliss must flow,
And that dear hut - our home."

- Nathaniel Cotton -

A friend at work said one of the saddest things recently: that she always needed to be out and about, and couldn't stand to be in her home for more than a few hours !

I couldn't agree LESS !

I love being at home. I hate to leave in the morning, and look forward all day to getting right back there ! It's where my most favorite people and things are . . . it's my haven, my sanctuary . . . it's where I can relax and dream and BE !!

"Seek home for rest, for home is best."

- Thomas Tusser -

Happy (homely) Monday !!

Your home is beautiful! I love to be at my home, too. How saw for your friend at work! :( Even when I didn't like my rent house, I still wanted to be there with my family {& my porch swing}!

I am happiest at home, too.
I love to sit on my front porch in the morning with a cup of tea and watch the day come alive.
