MrsUPS:  That sounds lovely…I’m from a run of the mill town not too far from NYC but juuuust close enough for people to be pretentious and for everything to be overpriced!!  The older I get, the further I get away from that part of NJ!

I grew up in Taipei, Taiwan and southern CA (LA and Orange County).  Now I live in Charlotte and it feels like a small town to me lol.

I lived in the ‘country’ if you will, outside of Phoenix til I was 8 then my momma moved me up to Iowa. A small farm town of like 600 people. Then I came back when I was 16.

I grew up in Northern Virginia (which is like a state itself that is soooo different from the rest of Virginia). It’s more like a burrough of Washington, DC. I just moved back from the Boston area after two years, and that was very city… which made me realize I’m not city girl at all, haha.

I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. I have briefly lived in Cali and North Carolina, but ended up back in Vegas. It’s home and, minus the heat, I love it. I always wanted to live in the country, but after living in NC, I realized I am a city girl through and through.

MrsUPS:  I was born and raised in Asturias, Spain. Moved to the US when I was 16. Lived all over Southern California (mostly in Los Angeles) and now my FI and I have settled in a beautiful home in Canyon Country (20 minutes north of LA).
