Thanksgiving Colors: Where do you feel at home?
At one time I owned a blog called Always at Home. At the time my husband and I were searching for our place in a world without a job. We were retired and, like so many other newly retired people, we felt a need to search the world for something different, more exciting and......? I began writing the blog because, no matter where we went or what we saw, I felt very at home. I could imagine a house or an apartment with us living contentedly. I was Always at Home.
Then someone asked me why my husband and I didn't move to Spain and live. We loved the country, culture and pace of life there. Something inside my heart gave me the answer I had been seeking for several years. See, it didn't really matter where we lived; we would simply set about recreating the life we loved right where we were. I would find the friends and colors I loved...the ones I have here in the USA.

We have settled down...we are no longer retired teenagers. We have matured and mellowed. Here are some images of my favorite colors. No matter where I go, I will seek them out. I love fall, decorate my house year around in fall colors and even dress in the glorious golds, blacks, reds and yellows.
Here are a few pictures I took this fall as we traveled. I hope you like them.
