When I came to live in the UK, I brought very few belongings with me. I was confined to what I could pack into two large suitcases and one piece of carry on luggage. For the first few years I didn't think about what I'd left behind. Beginning a new life and making a new home was so exciting. As time went by and I became more established, I realized there were a few things I wished I had been able to bring with me. Things that reminded me of my Mom and Dad, things from my childhood home.
