Arriving at Journey Home with my husband brought instant serenity into our hearts. It was a place that had special places to sit together and feel at peace. We found these special places throughout the house and on the grounds. We felt connected to the history in the tobacco barn. My husband and I hope to share this place and make great memories with our friends and family.
