Friday Files | May | Caylee


Hey everyone, it's Caylee. This prompt really got me thinking about what I consider to make my home. I consider my husband to be my home. But when my husband and I were living in an entirely different country last year, I didn't feel quite at home. I mean, I felt safe and secure with my husb and all that, but in the literal sense, I didn't feel home. Then I thought back to how once we started lining up our German bookshelves, our house felt more homey. It was actually kind of obvious all along - our books are where our home is.
Text reads:
Home is where the bookshelves are. When we moved countries, the only thing we kept in storage were our books. We are minimalists with all our things, except for our shelves-overflowing book collection. Even in Germany, when we knew how few kg of luggage we had, we couldn't help adding to our collection. Getting back to South Africa, opening the boxes and smelling the pages of books... that's how we knew we were truly home.
