What does ‘HOME’ mean to you?

Home, of course can mean a million different things to as many different people. It can be a warm bed that you can’t get out of in the morning, or tiny blue toothbrushes in the bathroom. It can be the sensation of peace on a cozy, rainy Sunday, or the feeling of relief when you walk through the front door. Home has been many places for us over the years, but it has always been defined by simple, beautiful family moments like these.

I received 4 free T-Shirts from The Home T, in exchange for a mention at the end of this post

Before our nomad style living, we thought of home as where we grew up. Now, home is wherever we are together as a family. Home to us is unpacking that last box.

Houses get bought and sold; countries change; continents swapped; but a home truly stays with you, always.

The lyrics of “You’re My Home”, an old Billy Joel song, say it all:

“When you touch my weary head
And you tell me everything will be all right
You say, ‘Use my body for your bed
And my love will keep you warm throughout the night’
Well, I’ll never be a stranger and I’ll never be alone
Whenever we’re together, that’s my home”

We have never really connected the feeling of ‘home’ to a physical place on the map … Maybe until we moved to Canada. Arriving in Vancouver was like coming ‘home’ to us, a most amazing city, a wonderful place where we love to be, and that feeling has stayed with us ever since. We do not know what the future brings, but one thing is for certain, we will always consider Canada to be our ‘home’ … wherever we live.

I am happy to mention The Home T, who provided us with 4 insanely soft t-shirts … A perfect way to express your love for your home 🙂 and equally important to me, is that they donate a portion of their profits to Multiple Sclerosis research … and they are made in the USA.

Family Fun at Spanish Banks beaches – Vancouver

Having a blast at Spanish Banks beach. We spent the afternoon and evening enjoying the beach, the waves, low tide, and of course, the amazing views.

Spanish Banks beaches include some of the most amazing elements of Metro Vancouver — spectacular views, sandy beaches, forest trails, beautiful wildlife, aboriginal and explorer history and a delightful sidewalk cafe.

Silent, sparkling and spectacular, is how we like to describe Spanish Banks beach. If you don’t like the crowds, this beach may be perfect for you … especially during low tides which expose miles and miles of beautiful sandy beach.

The perfect place to spend the day with the entire family!
