A week away from my husband, apartment and dogs has taught me what home really is.
A song that best verbalizes what home entails is aptly titled “Home,” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
“Home is wherever I’m with you.”
There are no better words to describe what my home is. It’s the place I have longed for every night since I’ve been in Phoenix. It’s our bed, our apartment, our belongings.
Chicago may not be as familiar to me as Phoenix, but it’s my new home because that’s where Graham and our new life is.
I watched this amazing timelapse by Max Wilson twice over the weekend. I am in awe of my new city.
I can’t wait to go back home.
