I love my six chubby dogs, my coffee loving fiancé, my comedic twin, my type A sister, and love-bird parents of 25 years. I love the flicker of christmas lights as I pull into the drive way. I love the way the house smells after coming back from months of college. I love how soft the carpet is as I crash onto it as though I’ve never seen anything but apartment decor. I love the games we play, and how our dogs always end up eating the cards. I love how Alison always randomly lays a card down, yet wins every time. I love the taste of real food that isn’t from my freezer or a Kraft box. I love the warmth and security I can’t find anywhere else. I love them. and I love being home.
