Friday, sweet Friday, it took you forever to arrive this week…yet I feel like it was just Monday. #WackyWeek
Tonight is the “big” Homecoming game at the high school I attended. The youngest kiddo of one of the families I consistently babysat for all through High School, and would watch when I was home from college (and still keep in touch with) is attending HER first HIGH SCHOOL HOMECOMING tonight. #WhatTheWhat
Since I was pretty much part of their family (and attended all family events), I took the kiddos to a lot of my high school commitments, and their Mom was always a Student Council Advisor, so the kiddos weren’t strangers to Homecoming Week festivities or extracurricular events. But to think it’s HER turn to partake in the traditions is just craziness!!

#2 Friends from HOME
When I was home a few weeks ago, I was looking for something and ended up flipping through my Senior Year scrapbook. I like blogging. I love Instagram. And I REALLY like gallery walls in my home, but I wish I never stopped scrapbooking. It really is a great hobby and so very worth it. Anyway, the only other “throwback” picture I have on my phone, which also happens to be from Senior Year Homecoming, (and also from my senior year scrapbook) is the one below. A lot of my friendships from middle and high school didn’t last, but from elementary school to now, this friendship is one of the best!
#3 HOME is where the grandparents are
My sweet grandmother who HATES to have her picture taken, so you really have to be sly like a fox 🙂
And my grandfather who loves that he can see himself in the phone, yet still doesn’t smile! 🙂
#4 HOME is where butter is not scarce
A fantastic “home” recipe is coming to the blog soon – but for now, holy butter!
#5 HOME is where I grew up
HOME is where your people are. Home is defined many ways. I often think home isn’t necessarily the driveway you enter, but the family, friends, and framily you have when you open the door.
I’m lucky to have 2 fantastic grandparents to come home to, and a mother who picks me up from the airport regardless of what time my flight arrives. 🙂
Happy weekend, friends!
