Lessons I learnt when living in a new house

Series of observations when I got married and moved out of my parent's home to my husband's family house. I had moved out of my home before, for college, for internships, to new cities.

  4. Hold onto your favorite people from back home. Stay in touch. They love you and miss you too.
