It’s PCS (Permanent Change of Station) season in the military. Wonderful friends are off on new adventures, but this time we get to stay put. Woohoo!
This moving thing has put us in many places, though, and many houses. Living in so many different places has given us the chance to start two lists – things we do want to put in a retirement home someday and things we certainly do not want.
We do want those shelves in the pantry that pull out so I can see what is on them, but absolutely no carpet in the bathrooms. We do want a two-car garage with a little extra room so both vehicles can fit in it and we can still open the doors, but floral wallpaper anywhere in the house is not for me. Our list continues.
One thing we have learned is that “home” does not necessarily mean a permanent address.
This week I did a guest blog on a friend’s website about what home is to us. You should stop in at Our Military Home and check it out. She is also doing a giveaway of Olive Drab Pom-Poms and a $5 Starbucks giftcard, open till next Thursday. You might win!
I would like to hear what you have loved and loathed about the houses you have been in and how you define a home in your family. Feel free to share!
