Have you lived where you lived now your whole life?
I have. Well, with the exception of college (4 years), when I went to Indiana University (only about an hour and a half away).
I have always been a homebody. When I was little, I couldn’t even spend the night at a friends without coming home! It wasn’t so much that I missed my mom and dad, it was that I loved my home.
Anyway, I’ve always stuck close to “home” – in fact, I live 5 miles from my parents, 4 miles from my oldest sister, and 3 miles from my middle sister! (some people think this is neat….other people thinks it’s…weird).
Yes, we always wear white at family gatherings. Don’t you?
Sometimes I wonder if I am too dependent on my family. Not that that is a bad thing, but I think I am the stereotypical youngest child – my family has always been around to help with decisions, and to just help in general. And that’s great! But sometimes I wonder if I need to be more independent.
Lately I’ve been thinking about moving….not seriously thinking about it (I did just buy my house a year ago!), but wondering if it’s something I might want to do in the next few years. I don’t even know where I would go! I wouldn’t want to go too far, but there are so many great places that aren’t terribly far from where I am now: Louisville (my bestie is there!), Denver (GORGEOUS….though far), Atlanta (warm, and gorgeous!), Tennessee (only driven it through it, but who doesn’t love the accents?), Chicago (know a lot of people there….lots to do), the Carolinas…..
Ah. Who am I kidding? I’ll probably never move.
But it is fun to think about…and maybe in a couple of years after I’m done with school (or have a new career, at least!), I will bite the bullet and do it.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?? Mine would be Colorado. Hands down! I’ve only been once, but it’s gorgeous, the people are friendly, and Denver has over 300 days of sunshine a year. MAN! Much better than Indy’s (below):
