Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: This is an excerpt from the book Finding Sweet Home by Hollie Chantiles. Her book is a collection of entries from her journal and blog. It has pictures that she has painted and images that she has painted. She started this project 4 years ago and one of the first things she completed were some answers to a very simple sounding question, "What does HOME mean to you?

Too many times we look in the mirror and are discouraged by what we see. Our hair should be longer, our teeth whiter, our legs smaller our breasts bigger. And that’s just what I see when I look in the mirror! The point is: we all do it, even yoga instructors.
