I love this quote

of all modern notions, the worst is this: that domesticity is dull. inside the home, they say, is dead decorum and routine; outside is adventure and variety. but the truth is that the home is the only place of liberty, the only spot on earth where a person can alter arrangements suddenly, make an experiment or indulge in a whim. the home is not the one tame place in a world of adventure; it is the one wild place in a world of set rules and set tasks.
--- g.k. chesterton

 

Thanks to Suzanne of the Glebe House Tour for sending this to me.

I agree!
It's interesting to me that being a homebody is generally not seen as a positive thing - why? My personal belief is that people who don't feel "at home" in their own house are not comfortable in their own skin.
But that's just the opinion of a lover of domesticity :)

I am a homebody, proud of it, and would not have it any other way. :-)
