Common Household Vocabulary You Should Know

“Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to.”

                                                                                                                            ~ John Ed Pearce

Home is special. As you grow up, you make many memories with your family members in your home. Memories that you remember with fond nostalgia when you become an adult and perhaps shift to a different city for job.
