This illustration by Mary Engelbreit is rather lovely, it really sums up "HOME".
Mary has captured HOME so beautifully - a place full of love, joy and contentment. Treasured artwork from the children pinned up for all to see, something homemade hanging on the wall, a postcard from a loved one, flowers on the table, cookbooks in the corner, two very happy cats watching. You can almost smell those biscuits (cookies) waiting to be cooked.
This is such a cosy warm picture and one I would love to just step into.
If a stranger walked into your home - would it shout HOME to them, a place of warmth and contentment? It does take some effort to turn a house into a home and one of the ingredients is love.
