What does home mean to you?

One of my favorite magazines is Real Simple, it covers a lot of STUFF from organizing to food to daily chores to decor to inspirational articles and much more. This month it seemed like every page had something that jumped out at me. One those pages was "this month's question" which was "What does home mean to you?"

Here are a few that RS featured that I really loved:

"My husband and I married seven years ago, and we've moved about every year since. Home to me is unpacking that last box."
-Mandy Romney

"Home is where the rags of your life are turned into quilts, lemons become lemonade, and a few extra pounds are simply more of you to love."
-Sherry Bubnowski

"Home means catching fireflies out in the front lawn with my brother. Those were the best times of my life."
-Shannon Cuthrell

"A place where I can wear purple yoga pants, a holey yellow t-shirt, and flip-flops without feeling as if I'm about to be ambushed by the hosts of some TV makeover show."
-Tara Pierson Hoey

"Living in Manhattan, where space if often tight, I've learned not to limit the definition of "home" to my closet -sized bedroom in a shared apartment. New York City is my extended home: The local coffee-shop counter becomes my kitchen table for the morning crossword puzzle, and the Great Lawn in Central Park is transformed into my living-room couch for weekend naps and lunchtime relaxation."
-Oliver Gaag

"Home is Family to me. Texas, in my sister's newly redone fabulous kitchen, in Utah at my grandma's, in my own little home with the hubby and Lillias. But most of all at my mom and dad's, because there is no place, like the place where EVERYONE gathers together for a meal or a game or just to talk."
