Home for the Holidays + A giveaway!

map my state give away

When the holiday season rolls around, I start to think about what home means to me compared to what home may be for someone else.  My family has always lived in Ohio, and although I’ve had a bout of time in Tennessee and Colorado, Ohio will always be home.

For others, they may live far from home or consider their current town home even if it’s not where they grew up.

This week – before we all head around the country and world for the holiday season, I’d love to celebrate ‘HOME’ with you guys by having a giveaway from Map My State!

Ashley and Ben, the founders of Map My State, had lots of homes between the two of them, so they created custom art to represent each of their favorite spots and are giving away TWO 8″x10″ prints to the winner!

    Gotta give some love to the great state of NJ ! But I went to school in Ohio and fell in love with the state as well :)

  2. Mar says

    My fiance and I have been long distance for 3.5 years. We finally moved in together this year, and we now live in Washington DC. Waking up next to him everyday makes our house finally feel like a home.

  3. Inneli says

    Home has been a lot of places, from California to Massachusetts to Tennessee… but it always ends up being where my family is.

  4. Allison says

    North Carolina is where I was born and bred and still live to this day. I love this state and can’t imagine living anywhere else!

  5. Gwynne says

    I live in DC, which is a new sort of young-adult home for me. BUT I’m a native New Yorker (upstate- Ithaca)and will absolutely live there again when it’s time to have a family.

  6. Elana says

    California is home, at least it is the place where I was born and raised. Since then I have livein in NC, NY, and currently OH.

  7. Kala says

    I live in Colorado and LOVE it but Wisconsin will ALWAYS be home! Us Wisconsinites are everywhere but love our HOME state!

  8. says

    beautiful! i wouldn’t know where to begin… my husband and i currently live in ecuador (and it certainly feels like home) but we grew up in NJ and VT respectively… and we love to travel everywhere! what lovely prints!

  9. Hilary A. says

    Seattle originally, but I have been in Portland for 4 years now and as a recent newlywed, Portland is quickly becoming the place I now consider to be home.

  10. says

    I moved so much over the years that I have always been unsure of where “home” really was….but I have been in Texas for almost a decade now and I love it here! So I am going to say….viva Tejas! :)

  11. says

    Oh my goodness, these are amazing! Home will always be Michigan for me and Pennsylvania for my husband, even though we met, married and live in Virginia these days. Thank you for hosting the giveaway!

  12. Maggie B says

    Love these! We have one from DC where my husband and I lived for 10+ years. Would love to have one of CT where we both grew up and are now raising our children.

  13. nancys says

    I’d love an Ohio print – my home state also.
    Though as the years go by, someplace warmer during the winter months is sounding better & better;)

  14. Mary Frances says

    These are so great, they’d be perfect for a gallery wall. I grew up in Alabama, and live here now – so it’s definitely home! I went to college in Texas though, so that will always be my favorite place to visit!

  15. Lia says

    One of these would be perfect for decorating our new home!

    My fiancé and I are from opposite sides of PA, and we now live in his hometown. I feel like i have 2 “homes”, where we live now, and my hometown 5 hours away. I would love to have something that has both on it!

    Btw that Ohio one makes me smile – we lived in BG for 2 years, and i worked in Findlay – while its not home its were we began our “grown up” lives, got engaged, and found out i was pregnant!

  16. Erika W. says

    I called Texas home for a long time but now that I’ve been in SC for a year, it definitely feels more like home!

  17. Dana says

    I live in Canada, but home will always be Michigan. I appreciate it even more now that I’m gone. I’m so lucky to have such a gorgeous home state :)

  18. Sarah Kate says

    Wisconsin is where I call home, but California is where I roamed for the past 5 years! These are lovely because I always try to remember my midwestern roots!

  19. Nina says

    The place I see as my home today is the city where I’ve been living for the last 3 years, for my studies. I had never thought I would like this city so much when I came here. But whenever I feel good in a place I call it home. I lived in Germany for only six months during last winter and I really enjoyed the place where I was, so it was my home at this time, even if it was only for 6 months!
