I was born in Germany; raised in NYC; college in Washington, DC. Have lived in NYC, San Francisco, Boston, London, Paris, Abu Dhabi, Charlotte. Don't live anywhere near my birthplace and to some degree it doesn't even exist anymore as I was born in the British Zone of West Germany after WWII in an RAF hospital which no longer stands--the place is a park now.

Born in VA at a naval hospital. Have lived in RI (I think), HI (too young to remember dangit), CA, VA (many locations), and now CO the past 15 years.

Hubby and I have been in our house 10 years this month. Before this, the longest at one address was 4 years. It's just plain weird having spent this much time in one place.

I grew up outside Chicago in the boonies suburbs of Roselle IL. In fact, our relatives did not want to visit because it was too far.  I played with cows, goats, horses & pretty much had to ride a bike a mile or so to anything.

Went to catholic grade school so I'm automatically messed up.

I've moved at least 15 times (maybe more) but always stayed in the surrounding area pretty much.

I live 300 miles from my birthplace in Southern CA. I have lived at the beaches of the South Bay,  in Palm Springs when it was still old-time glamour, near the Sunset Strip before 'nobody walked in LA', and these past 2 decades, along the Colorado River in Nevada and Arizona. One year we flew to FL, and drove back along the southern United States over 2 weeks. We decided that if we found anywhere we liked better, we would move there. We did not.
