Wasn't that the definition of home? Not where you are from, but where you are wanted.
I won't be all the way home in the upper peninsula for Christmas, but I will be in the Detroit area with my Mom's whole family. I am excited to get out of the city and relax with family and friends. Not to mention presents and good food, what more could you ask for?
I hope you all have a great holiday and enjoy every minute with your loved ones.
