My mom, a very wise woman, always taught me that home should be a haven.
Haven: any place of shelter and safety; refuge; asylum.
To me, that means home should be a place where you feel safe to be yourself. Where you can wear the shirt with chocolate stains. (Apparently, licking it off doesn't count as "pre-treating.") Where you can take a pause from your chores to perform a little dance routine...with the shades open. Where you can watch "Teen Mom" every week, and also the reunion special with Dr. Drew.
