Home Is Where the Heart Is {FREE Printable!}

I live in Birmingham, Alabama, but I'm originally from Ohio. I didn't move to Alabama until I was 23 years old. My brother and his family have lived in Alabama for a long time, so I'd spent a lot of time here before I moved. Shortly after I graduated from college, my sister's husband got a new job in Birmingham. I knew my parents wanted to retire somewhere in the south, so I thought it would be a good time to start considering a move myself. I'm someone who really needs to be close to my family so about six months after my sister and her husband moved, I made the move, too. It was scary. I had never lived on my own, I didn't know anyone in Birmingham other than my sister, I didn't have a job. But I knew in my heart that the Lord wanted me to take this step. He has blessed me so abundantly with a life that I absolutely love down here in the south. It's also where I met my sweet, Southern husband. :) So, I can truly say that right here in Birmingham, Alabama is where my heart is. It's my new home. When I moved from Ohio, I thought that it would always feel like home...and, in a way it will. But Alabama...this is where my heart feels at home.

I've seen prints like these in several different places and I thought it would be a perfect addition to our home office. I'm trying to add things that are truly meaningful and tell our story rather than buy random things just to fill the space. It's a slow process, but I know I'll be much happier with the results in the end.

I know this will only be for my Birmingham friends, but I thought some of y'all might like to print one of these for yourself. {Friends from other states, see the bottom of this post!} I made it in several different colors. Just click the links below to download your own 8x10 copy. :)

Instead of printing mine with my printer, I uploaded it to the Walgreens photo website and ordered an 8x10 print. They're regularly $3.99 each, but I found the coupon code ALLTODAY33 on RetailMeNot and got 33% off. My print ended up being $2.88. Yay! :) And just a heads up, that coupon code expires on July 31, 2013.

Here's how mine turned out. I love it!

Okay, so for my friends from other states, I can do this printable for you, too! Just click here to visit my Etsy shop and use the coupon code RICHLYBLESSED to get 20% off! You can also choose from 30 different backgrounds {including chalkboard}! Yay! Hope y'all like this one! :)
