    Wow, I would love a home on a few acres with a pool in the backyard. My boys and their friends running around. This post got me really thinking. Thank you!

    Great post and educational, I’m glad I learned a new word! I’m a sentimental person so I can see the value in placing a word to identify an emotion, it helps validate it which is important. It’s a hard feeling to want to go back to something that no longer exists. Thanks for sharing!

      It really is hard wanting to go to a time and place that no longer exists.
      I love that I have discovered this word.
      Thanks for reading.

    This is a very touching post. I don’t have a Hiraeth personally, but I do know my dream would be to have a cabin on the ocean or lake…close enough to town for necessities, but far enough away to feel on my own. That’s what I dream about…

    I love this post so much.
    I remember growing up and visiting with my cousins, aunt, and uncle at their vacation home in the mountains.
    The feelings and memories from my time spent there are so wonderfully strong.
    I miss that time in my life.

      Wendy, I’m glad you could relate. That is exactly what Hiraeth is.

    Sweet, sentimental post. I almost didn’t click on it, however, since I was unfamiliar with the word. Perhaps an explanation in the title would help. Still, it’s a word I’m glad I was introduced to, although I suspect our memories are somewhat fickle and the haze of marvelous days gone by often an illusion. The good old days are now.
