Simple Pleasures ~ Going Home

Ah ... home at last. Whether you’ve had a hard day at work, or been on a long vacation, going home is one of life’s simple pleasures. You may dwell in an apartment, a house, a mobile home, a log cabin, a one-room cottage, or a mansion on a hill. No matter. Going home brings with it a feeling like no other. Home has a way of grounding you. It's who you are and where you belong.

What simple pleasure have you been noticing and enjoying lately? You're invited to share with us here, every Thursday. I hope you will. For complete posting guidelines, please visit the Simple Pleasures page.

  3. Dayle,
    Welcome Home! Wonderful words to hear when you've been on an extended journey and I agree, there is no place like home!


  4. Home is the precious hidey hole. No matter how much there is to do, it's still a restful place - a safe place!

    Love to you,

  5. "Simple Pleasures" is such a great way to look around and see all the simple pleasures that I have, everyday!
    I look forward to seeing the pleasures that others enjoy. I have even tried a few myself.
    Thank you for the idea and hosting!

    By the way, you sure are right about coming home. One of the BEST pleasures that I know!

  6. What a fun link party. Thanks for letting me in on the fun!!

  7. Going home ... yes! Indescribable - and sometimes elusive - it's that inner "pull" that feels at once, so warm, so right.

  8. Ahhhh, welcome home!
    Thank you for encouraging us to slow down and enjoy the things we can so easily take for granite!

  10. Welcome home, Dayle, and you are so right--there is no place like home. My very favorite place to be! Thank you so much for hosting--Simple Pleasures is a great idea--sure glad you thought of it.

  11. Welcome Home Dayle! There is no place like it is there! Enjoy getting back into your routine and all the simple pleasures of your home!

    Blessings to you

  12. ah... Home Sweet Home. Welcome home, Dayle :)

  13. Dayle, I couldn't agree more! I get a purely giddy feeling in turning in the driveway at the end of a trip.

    My father used to laugh about my mother on her first night home after a trip. She always got into bed and kind of kicked her legs back and forth saying, "I love my bed... I love my bed...I love my bed..."

    Yep. Coming home might be the best simple pleasure.

  14. In the words of Dorothy Gale, "there's no place like home."

    Being home is truly a simple pleasure.

  15. Home is one of my favorite simple pleasures. Great post!

  16. There really is no place like home! And as much as I enjoy traveling, seeing new things, hanging out with relatives who live far away - the thing I long for most is coming home to my own bed and shower.

    And the picture of your home is simply beautiful!

    I completely and totally relate to this simple pleasure!

  17. Thank you for the invitation to link up! Ahh- home. We've moved so much that we don't quite feel "home" yet. At least not as I've envisioned feeling like home. It is a simple pleasure, for sure, to return here after travels!

  18. Dayle, I love this idea of simple pleasure's. I hope to participate in this in the future. I'm all about simple pleasures.
