I believe that every day "on the road" is in fact A Good Day. How could it not be? I'm chasing my dreams, traveling the world, meeting and seeing and eating and drinking new people/places/things, and all of this is filed under the crazy umbrella of "My Job." So clearly, if I am traveling it *is* A Good Day.
That being said though, I also think that every day on the road is A Rough One.
"There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home.."
Judy Garland got that shit right.
In total I will only physically be home for 6 non-consecutive days of August's thirty-one, so I have decided that the perfect photo set to share this month with my incredible VIPs is a very special one that I've been saving, shot in my very own beautiful, bright, little LA home nestled within sight of the Hollywood sign, shot by the delightful, artistic, and caring Ed Here Photography.
Continue for more (NSFW) photos from my lovely home, and I promise to try to keep from getting *too* homesick as I type this..
To add in another cliche quote, "Home is Where the Heart Is"
It's also where my bed and my kitty CiCi and my view of the Hollywood sign and my warm fuzzy homey feeling is.
Plus all my shoes and endless clothes and things.
And while I am currently sitting and enjoying the moonlit, waterfront view here in northwest Washington (near Shelton), along with good tunes and good company and a delicious glass of white wine and even tastier blueberry poppyseed cookies after a full day of travel through the gorgeous, winding, wooded roads of the Northwest and an incredible evening of photo-creation, I would click my ruby red heels together so fast if I knew it would mean opening my eyes in the comfort of my own home.
This sentiment is perhaps even more meaningful to me personally, as I grew up in a rather dysfunctional/unhealthy/abusive/ whatever family (but who of us hasn't at this point, to be fair?) and for most of my life I knew I didn't have a home. I never felt like I had a home. I never was at home. I *hated* "home."
It honestly wasn't until a couple years ago when, despite all my sincere beliefs that I would never know this feeling, I nestled into the warm embrace of LA and finally knew without any doubt that THIS is what home feels like. THIS is where I belong.
And then I immediately hit the road and have been traveling non-stop ever since (hahahaha.. insert all The Feels).
BUT holy fuck is it such an incredible feeling, to go out, travel the world, do what I LOVE, have endless good days and bad days and more often than not have those be the Same Fuckin' Days, and know that no matter what happens, in the end I'll be returning HOME. That warm, buttery, familiar yet dreamy feeling of HOME.
