On a recent episode of Orange is the New Black, the inmates were asked the question, "What does love mean to you?" Piper Chapman answered with, "It's like coming home after a long trip". When she said that, I instantly teared up. And admittedly, it's not the first time I've teared up during OITNB. I've always felt that way, and this weekend furthered solidified that feeling when I came home (to my parents') for the first time in months. Being away at school, moving every year, and pretty much only ever feeling like my stay is temporary, really makes me appreciate my time at home. Further, coming home reminds me what exactly home feels like. Love. I love where I live when I'm at school, but knowing the positioning of everything I've taken hours to set up is just going to come down in a year restricts me from feeling too at home.
It's been such a great weekend. Happy Father's Day.
