thank you home

Home is where the heart is. Home is where you always want to return no matter how big or small you are, how successful or rich you are. I have always said that having your own home is very important. There is nothing more important than a good, safe and secure home. You need a space that you can call yourself – a space where you can be yourself! When you are a teen you are dreaming about the day you will be leaving your home to explore the world, go study abroad, get a work at the most exotic location but as you grow older and wiser you realize home is where you want to return to. You can never escape saying – thank you home!

I am no stranger to this feeling. You probably realize the worth of your home, family, city only when you have left it and you cannot return there. The day we took the decision to get our own home it was the start of a new chapter in life. Buying a house can be a daunting task but believe me, all that is worth when you step inside your own home.

I have been very thankful to finally find a home that completely reflects me and my style. We spent over a year and a half in search of an apartment in Bangalore. Nothing impressed us – and I am talking about over some 20-30 projects that we had seen. Either they were not having enough open space, or not having clear titles or were simply out of our budget.

But all that effort was worth it once we had finalized the house and moved in. I can’t thank enough our home – this is the place which has taught me responsibility, this is the place that has brought me and my man closer because we both shouldered all responsibilities of running a home in the initial days.

“May your home always be too small to hold all of your friends.”

I remember the first day we moved in and the pieces of furniture were still coming in, the husband got me a plyboard from the woodwork leftover so that I could at least sit! We have spent time and have made efforts to build our nest straw by straw – its still to nearly done, though!

This is the home where my son has discovered unnoticed corners, has explored every nook and corner while he was in the crawling stage.This is also the place where we are creating wonderful memories.

“Home is where love resides, memories are created, friends always belong, and laughter never ends.”

Are you thankful for home too? Do you say Thank you home?

    Truth be told, I have lived a long time in rented house, but even a tiny little space that one can call ours, is quite fulfilling and I am thankful to find our own little space in this world <3 Thankful for that and all that we have!
