I like to have my home decorated with things that mean something to me: art, souvenirs, pictures, things that tell stories.
So when we pack our HHE (and to a degree, but less so, our UAB), I like to include things that make our place overseas feel like home.
Apparently, my wife also likes that I do this, because this time, even she was clamoring for something to make our apartment (which is ginormous) look less like a corporate apartment.
So we were both really happy when our HHE finally arrived a week ago Tuesday. And there was lots of it, like 6000 lbs (and that number is low because I deliberately reduced how much we brought this time!). Of course, probably half that amount is books...

Even my office at work has a touch of home:
