Take Care


 I'm sure, to some people, I am a total homebody. Don't get me wrong, I go out with friends often and I feel like a have a pretty typical social life for an (almost) 25 year old. But boy oh boy do I love being at home. I was never the child who left sleepovers early because I missed my own bed, oh no, I was co-raised by many of my friend's parents and you had to kick me out of your house to get me to go home. I left my hometown at 18 and I travel every chance I get.

So, if someone can explain to me why more often than not all I want to do is stay home, organize my closet, dust the far too many vintage owls laying around, kick my feet up on my sofa and relish in sheer hermit time? My boyfriend on the other hand, will walk aimlessly around the city trying to top the last sandwich shop he's discovered, reads in the park, and just seizes his day in general.

I have this vision of me, if I had more time off or worked from home or whatever that I would bike around with fresh basil in my hypothetical bike basket and I would go feed ducks or something. No. I would dance around my apartment and put delicious things in avocados, for hours.

  3. i can totally relate! my mom has always called me a "housecat" because i love just hanging out around the house. i also do like to go out. but especially when the weather is getting chilly like this... it's hard to drag myself out. xx

  4. I understand you! I also prefer my home even though I love to travel. I would choose my room over every party in the town :)x

  5. I love this little journey through your thought process. I can so relate with being a homebody. For me it's because everything I love the most is at home. My wee ones, books, our bed and quilts, my laptop, crafts--even the crazy chickens out back. Maybe it's a season getting you ready for something new and exciting?

  6. Haha! I love traveling, too, but at heart I am a huge homebody. I love nothing more than coming home from wherever, getting changed into my pjs, having something yummy to eat (plus a ton of snacks/junk food) in front of me and a good movie or show or cartoons on the television. If it's a rainy day, all those things become even more perfect! Listening to music in the kitchen while cooking or cleaning is also pretty magical. :)

  10. Thank you for the follow, you and your home are GORGEOUS. I'm also super jealous of your name since I was supposed to be named "Charli" and got stuck with Jessica.

    I'm a homebody too. Sometimes I get invited places, and I'll get ready to go out and then at the last minute decide against it and cozy down on my couch with some popcorn. I have a feeling I'm going to be on your blog for hours =]

  11. I can definitely relate, I mean I'm 19 so we have a difference in age but I was too raised by friend's parents and stayed over at friend's homes every chance I had. Now that I am in college I find myself in my apartment having the time of my life at home...I'm trying to break the habit but I love it so much.
