As we get older, the concept of home changes. More likely than not, you get back to the place you grew up in less and less. Let’s face it – by now your parents probably already cleared out your old room, making it into a guest room, an office, maybe a game room – IDK.
It’s like, when the heck did we become adults?!
During our twenties, it becomes increasingly important to craft a new idea of what home means. Building comfort and security around you with the ones who are by your side in whatever city / town / country you’re living right now.
And don’t get me wrong – I can’t wait to get back to Rhody at the end of the month to be with family. But I take pride in the fact that I’ve created my own little safe haven. In New York I have found a familiar city that I’m always itching to get back to. This holiday season, I’m grateful to find comfort in both homes, past and present.
