How about you?

    1. That must have felt like quite a change, Debra! I don't think I could ever live in a small town. I've got too much city girl in me :)

  5. I, too was born in Chicago. I have lived in a lot of other places, though. My parents moved us pretty regularly and I've moved another 21 times with my husbands company. I still have ties to the Chicago area and get there from time to time.

  14. Born in Melbourne, Australia but moved to Sydney with my family when I was only one year old. Back in Sydney now after living in various smaller cities and towns in this state or the ACT (which is wholly enclosed in this state, New South Wales). I feel like I've moved around a lot, but I guess I haven't really gone far.

    1. Sounds like me, Natalie! I've moved a few times from home to home but never all that far. Although it seems like a move from Melbourne to Sydney is a few hours distance. Further than I've ever gone!

  15. My family has been in the same community for 162 years.

  19. Melbourne, Arkansas...still here.

    Mom had a young doctor scheduled to be gone during my time of birth. She told him she would wait til he got back. I rolled over when I was born a month later. Scared the nurse! The doctor was the son of Henry Karr Shannon famous in his own right. http://www.encyclopediaofarkansas.net/encyclopedia/entry-detail.aspx?entryID=2629

  20. I was born in Denver, Colorado. My kids think it was during the Jurassic period. Moved to California when I was 8. I lived in South Carolina for a year, then Japan for almost two years and back to California. Right now, we are looking to ditch Cali but can't figure out where to go.....any ideas?

    1. During the Jurassic period...hahaha... Chances are we crossed paths in that era :)

      JAPAN! That is fascinating. Now there's an adventure.

      I'd tell you to come up to Canada but I'm not sure you'd like the winter months. Although the west coast has some much warmer areas.

  23. Born in South Australia, Australia, moved to Queensland's Sunshine Coast for four years in the 80s, back to S.A. and lived here since but want to move to Queensland's Gold Coast. It's like Los Angeles and Miami rolled into one. It's beachy and sunshiny and stormy and awesome!
