Home is both literal and symbolic, It’s a location, of course, but it can also be a group of people, an object, a memory, a feeling. Home is where your family is, or where you grew up, or where you feel the safest or happiest or most hopeful. Regardless of where “home” is for you, the important part is that you choose where home is.
Personally, I have a few places I call home. Sapporo, Japan, where I studied abroad. Muncie, Indiana, where I went to college. And, of course, Indy–where I grew up and where my husband and I are placing roots now. That’s why I blog about this city and support its local artists, and also why I’m proud to collaborate with Hoosier Proud, the makers of this “Home” T-shirt. Not only does the company print their shirts locally, but founder Connor just announced this week via Instagram that 10% of all future sales of Hoosier Proud T-shirts will support Indiana causes. This shirt, for example, helps support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis.
