Pin It Forward: What Home Means to Me.

June 24, 2010

Awhile ago, I signed up for a blog series called Pin It Forward, hosted by Victoria of sfgirlbybay. 300 bloggers (including myself) have all started using a new bookmarking site called Pinterest, which I’d like to add is a-w-e-s-o-m-e. Considering the number of blogs I read everyday and the loads of inspiration I come across, it only makes sense that I’d need a place to bookmark all the neat things I see and would like to save for future reference. So I started pinning a little over a month ago…

…and this is the result.

For this particular blog series, each blogger is sharing “what home means to me.” A lot of bloggers have chosen to interpret this by displaying inspiration photos of things they’d love to have in their homes, or ways they’d like to decorate their homes, but I’ve taken a little bit of a different route. To me, home is not about possessions or decor (though I do love a well-decorated home). Home is…

…a place to hide away.



…a place to be free.

…fighting battles together.

…and being with the one you love.

Even if I could have my dream house — vintage details, all sorts of collections, restored furniture, wallpaper & art prints from floor to ceiling — it wouldn’t be home without the one who makes home for me: my husband.

To see the rest of “what home means to me” & to find the sources of all these images, check out my Pin It Forward board. And now I pass the baton onto A While Ago & Recently, who will be posting what home means to her tomorrow! You can also see the rest of the Pin It Forward posts here. :]

    lovely meanings for being home. i especially like the acknowledgement of imperfections + not facing battles alone. pictures + words make great pairs.
