List 11 asked for a list of your essentials. Not the toiletry items you require or what you have in your purse, but what you need in your life in order to feel like yourself. I can get off-kilter quite easily in life if I don't have my essentials. One of the most important things for me is to have balance and to make sure I have enough down time from the hectic rush of life.
List 12 kind of relates to List 11: make a list of things that make you feel at home. I grew up in two houses. The house that my mom lives in now was our home. My parents put a lot of work into it to make it theirs, and we have so many wonderful memories there. I always remember coming home from road trips, and coming up on the last few blocks before home. I think that is one of the most comforting feelings, almost being home.
Now that I've grown up and am building a home with my fiancé, my list of what feels like home is expanding and changing. But home will always be where my family is.
So tell me, what are your essentials? What makes you feel at home?
