A little background

Our 2 year-old daughter was born in California, moved to Chicago when she was 9 months old, and moved to Costa Rica a few days before she turned 2. She has spent much of her young life living in hotels.

So what does she call home? It is not tied to a place, but to people. Home is with Papa and Mama. For our family, is wherever we happen to be at this moment.

But is “home” as simple as that? Or is it about something deeper? Something more complex than where we are, or who we are with?​

While I searched for answers to these questions, I realized that there are many of you who share them.​

This is Home blog is a journey to find the answers, because I believe that:​

If you and I can clearly define what home means to us, we will be prepared to thrive.
