What Does Home Mean to You?

driveway home

The definition of the word home means different things to different people, but at its heart, it means the same thing: that soft place to land at the end of the day that supports us and provides us shelter.

Home can mean and do much more for us than that, and in doing so, provides us with a greater source of strength and well-being not just for ourselves, but for everyone that lives in it and who visits it. According to John Ruskin, the Victorian English art critic and social thinker, his definition of home was “Peace: This is the true nature of home – it is the place of Peace; the shelter, not only from injury, but from all terror, doubt and division.”

Home is an Oasis. A place to renew and indulge our senses, provides safety, gives ultimate comfort and luxuriation. Home is our soft place to land, to prepare us to tackle the world outside our door. It is much more than four walls: it is a place that surrounds us with beauty, feeds and nurtures us.”

We Asked Celebrities and Notables: What Does Home Mean to You?

I asked this question to a few of my celebrity friends to find out what it meant to them. Here’s what they said:

MIREILLE GUILIANO –

author, French Women Don’t Get Fat, France, & New York

Home is a high priority in life in my book. It means a place of my/our own, a nest, a refuge, a place where we can live, relax, cook, have fun, share with friends and relatives and much more in privacy.
