"Ah! There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort." -Jane Austin
"Home – the abiding place of affections." – who said this?
"Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name…" -lyrics to the Cheers theme song
"For me, home is the coming together of my past memories and experiences, of my love for my children, husband and friends; my optimism tangibly expressed in life-enhancing ways – room by room – and of the tender appreciation that no matter how much of myself I put into this home, I, like everyone on earth, am a temporary guest." – Alexandra Stoddard
This almost makes me reconsider the major paint job on which I am about to embark…Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: Keep cultivating home-happiness.
