This t-shirt was provided to me by The Home T, but my true love for this shirt is all my own!
I have to be a little bit honest with you all today. I’ve been feeling a little homesick lately. It’s been such a smooth transition, moving to Wisconsin that is, for Cody and Alea, but for some reason I’m just a little more slow to adjust than they are. I absolutely love this area– don’t get me wrong. It’s breathtaking, beautiful and I’m mostly familiar with it. You see, La Crosse was where Cory and I met when I was going to school at Viterbo University. There’s those sweet memories here and this is alway where we’ve hoped to “end up.” It’s exactly what I wanted, but for some reason I still just feel sad to leave Minnesota behind.
Minnesota is where my entire family is. It’s where all my childhood memories live and it’s all I ever knew until I moved to Wisconsin for school. It’s familiar and familiar is what I like. Not only that, we have so many memories as a little family of three there. We bought our first home there when Alea was just 6 months old. We moved in Halloween weekend of 2010 and Cory worked so hard to make that house (which I absolutely hated at closing) our home. It’s where Alea learned to crawl. It’s where she took her first steps. It’s where we were when she weaned herself from breastfeeding just a couple weeks shy of her first birthday. It’s where we got our first family pet, Bentley. And I remember bringing him home wondering if we made a huge mistake because Alea was so scared of dogs at the time.
No matter how much I grow to love it here in Wisconsin, Minnesota will always be “home” to me.
And that adorable t-shirt I’m wearing above is the perfect reminder of the home we’re leaving behind in Minnesota. The Home T has all different states, so you can get one for your “home” state as well! They are simply fabulous, aren’t they? And not to mention COMFY! This is the softest t-shirt I think I’ve ever owned!
How do you get over home-sickness?
