“Home is the nicest word there is.” ~ LAURA INGALLS WILDER
I am part of a photography circle where we are given monthly assignments. For February, we are to share an image titled “Home is Where the Heart is.” So, I chose the image above of this adorable six month old on his family’s bed at his home in Athens, GA. I love photographing babies where they are most comfortable. This lil’ man is clearly quite happy and content in his house around all the things that give him much joy and comfort. This is where he is surrounded by love and warmth that I’m sure fills his heart and soul. It’s not so much the building in itself that gives us these fond feelings, but rather the people, experiences, memories and rituals within the dwelling that matter. Home truly is where the heart is. It’s quite comforting to know that you will always have a home in yourself and with those you surround yourself with throughout life, regardless where you are.
