What are your Comforts From Home? You know, the traditions, recipes or other things that make you “feel at home” and closer to your loved ones? I am sure it is a question that has different answers for everyone. For us, our home is full of memories. We fill our home with memories of our travels together, and that is what makes it feel even more like “home” to us all year long.
The boys and I travel a third of the year together, and those memories are some of the best we have, so bringing them to life in our house makes us feel closer together all year long. For instance, along the walls of our home, I have collages of photos taken during our travels. We have been to all the lower 48 states together, and sharing some of the memories of our favorite places on our walls really helps keep them fresh in our minds.
We recently redid our living room with a beach theme. Being Florida natives, the beach is near and dear to our hearts. We have also shared countless incredible memories at the beach. That’s why, adding personal touches like this tray of shells that have been collected from beaches we have visited all over the country is so important to us.
For us, our comforts of home are our memories of our travels together, but what are yours?
