Home is Where?

Home is where? Where you live? Where your heart lies?

My home is in the burbs, my heart is in the city.

I spent Friday in the town where I grew up, and it didn't feel like home at all anymore. I spent more then half my life, not quiet yet, in that town and it doesn't feel like home at all. So much has changed, buildings have come and gone and everything has changed.

I spent Saturday in my old neighborhood, where we have lived for the last 6 years. That felt like home. Of course the only thing that changed is a turn lane but still, that felt like home.

When will my "home" feel like home? Do we need to be here years? Do we need to have some major milestones? I should be excited to be decorating for the holidays, and I am somewhat, but it also makes me miss my "home" and the traditions we had there. We will be starting all new traditions here and maybe some day soon it will feel like home.

Maybe the day I can go out and get home with out getting lost it will feel like home?
