Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.
~ Robert Frost

"Home," by my favorite band, Carbon Leaf, has been in my head today. Maybe because it been a cold, grey day and I couldn't wait to get home to a warm, cozy house.

Maybe, because the dream home seems so close and yet so far away. We are busy gathering every bit of info about ourselves, with the exception our blood types, to give to the bank in hopes that we will be preapproved for a mortgage and can start the construction loan process.

Maybe, because I've been thinking about what home means to me, and how it is such a refuge when the world gets to be crazy.

Tonight, I know I am happy to be home with my hubby, eating big bowls of spaghetti in our snug little roost.

Do any songs remind you of home?

Oh, happy memories. :) I don't know about any particular songs that remind me of home, but whenever I hear any Eric Clapton songs from his Unplugged album it reminds me of my childhood and how my dad would play it on our stereo. :)
