H O M E

Newbury park is where my childhood happen, every corner has a memory, a story or a meaning. my mom still lives in my childhood home & while it has definitely changed since i was really young, it's still so much the same. i have the spots that i love & find comfort in, pictures of my family throughout the years, our dog that we've had since i was 11 & my cat that i've had since i was 9. i love going back to newbury park & feeling it all again, it's all so much the same no matter how much it changes. It was so much fun growing up there, plus like I said in my last post, it’s gorgeous. Newbury park will always be a home to me. 

While I was back people kept asking if it was going to be hard for me to go back to Madrid, to leave home again. It would be a lie if I said it wasn’t a little hard for me to leave, but in all honesty no matter how much I loved being back & loved being with everyone again, it didn’t feel like my life, it felt like my life was on pause while I was on a vacation. Newbury park isn’t where I’m meant to be right now, Madrid is.


Newbury park may always be home to me, but I’ve come to realize that home isn’t only a place, but it's where your life is. for me home is when I’m with Austin whether it’s in spain, in Utah, in a tent, in a car, wherever we are together is my home & that’s where I’m supposed to be. that's where my life is. Coming back to Madrid was bittersweet, I left friends & family but I came back to Austin & I was so excited & so ready to be back with him, in our life together. i'm so lucky to have a husband who is also my best friend, a husband that i want to share everything with in this life of ours.

  1. Is that your parents pool?? Gorgeous! I can totally relate. I have always been a homebody (though I love traveling, I just love living at HOME, you know?) and am really close to my parents. When we made the decision to move to TN I was really afraid of having a melt down, but because we truly embraced this as our new home and because John and I have grown closer after we moved, nothing feels more right to me. xo

    1. it is! it's the bessssst backyard, i swear. i'm pretty sure that yard is one of the things i miss most! moving is just HARD, but it sounds like you had the perfect perspective. embracing the new place & those around you & truly counting on your spouse makes all the difference, i love how close it can bring you to each other :)

  2. i adore this. it's crazy to start feeling like multiple places are "home." but there's no place like the original!

    1. it's such a weird concept to me to feel like you're home in so many different places, but it totally is happening! i'm glad i'm not the only one that has that feeling!
