Thoughts on Home

My recent trip to Utah brought to mind and heart many thoughts and emotions about the word "home." Sometimes I use it to refer to Utah, other times to St. Louis. After much pondering, here is what I have come up with.

Ogden - my first home; my first family; my childhood memories; playmates (for me and my girls); fun; adopted families; mountains; Home.

Logan - my second home; my second family; dear friends (many still there, others across the country) ; college memories; 10 years of memories with AT; laughter; majestic beauty; open spaces; peace; Home.

St. Louis - my current home; new friends; new experiences; new everything - well, almost; fun; adventure; growth; Ahenobarbus; Beemer; Audi; Home.

While a part of my heart is in each of these locations, "Home," I've discovered, is where my husband and girls are. No matter where that is.
