Who says, ‘you can’t go home?’  I went home over the weekend for a visit with my Mom, sisters & their families.  Coming home to the farm centers me, grounds me and makes me aware how the rest of the world lives...

Maybe it’s a combination of nostalgia, remembering what it was like to be a kid free from life’s responsibilities and the quiet, serene space of  rural living.  Whatever the reasons, it’s a magic elixir that quiets the nerves and soothes the mind.

The girls and I enjoy our walks throughout the day. No rushing traffic and there is a hushed stillness that just seeps into your bones as you walk.  These are just a few shots, I have others I'll share once I get them from my camera onto the computer :-)  My blog banner is also one of my pictures from home.

It’s over far too soon and as I drive away, leaving the  world of home behind, I realize Springfield, the farm, my family are ‘my’ magic kingdom.  A serene sphere waiting to surround & nurture me when I return.  Going home is a great thing...

The best thing about this trip home is getting to welcome little Addison Joyce to the family.  She was born on Friday the 12, first born for my nephew, Aaron and his wife Angie.  What a beautiful little girl you are Addy, welcome to the world and into our hearts!
