As we ease into the last two months of 2018, many of us will have “home” on our minds. The home where we grew up, the home we found in our friends at college, the home we’ve started to build for ourselves. For some, home is in the back seat of their car with a different view out their window each morning. For me, it’s where my kids’ messes spill over into my workspace at the kitchen table and the peacefulness of Joe and I enjoying a fire after putting the chaos of the day back inside their baskets and boxes.
Many of us will open our homes to family and friends at the end of this month in a big act of gratitude. We will feed them and share the backdrop of our most intimate family moments with them. Our plates will become theirs and through the giving and receiving of food and drink we will (hopefully) become closer and more known to one another.
This month we will be talking about home in a variety of contexts on Wit & Delight: how our physical spaces affect our well being, how to be a good guest in someone else’s home, how to bring home on the road with you, and how to find your way back home if you’ve been feeling lost physically, emotionally or spiritually.
If there is a topic you’d love to see covered, please comment below! It’s also a good time to sign up for our Wit & Delight newsletter list, where you’ll get weekly recaps of blog posts, edits from our archives, and a couple of digital downloads to dress your tech (and physical walls at home!) via email.
Happy November everyone.
