I lived in New Husband from birth to graduation from high school.

I lived in Bryn Mawr, PA for college and the year after.

I lived in Philadelphia for the 6 years after that (graduate school, beginning of career).

Now I live in Central PA.

I moved around from birth until now.  I was born and lived in Florida, then Virginia, then another location in Virginia, then Texas, then Maryland, then 3 more locations in Maryland before I landed where I am now.  Oy!  Over the span of 24 years.


Florida until 2 yrs old.  Virginia (two locations) until 11.  Texas until 16.  Maryland (4 locations) until 24.

Always fun when people ask “where are you from”


“ummm… how much time do you have?”

@LovelyCoCoBee:  Haha! I always have trouble figuring out how to answer that question.  Where was I born, do you mean? 😛

@Ap2010:  I was born in Wisconsin and lived there (& Minnesota) until I was almost 16. During those 16 years I moved like 15+ times. 

Then I moved to California. Lived there until I was 17 (again, moved around a few times in that year) and then moved to Washington state.

Moved back to California right before I turned 18 and lived there until I was 22, moving probably like 6 or 7 times?

Then moved to Virginia, moved twice in the state.

Now I’m 22 (until tomorrow lol) and we just moved to Texas and bought a house so no moves for AWHILE! 

So midwest -> west coast -> east coast -> south.

I haven’t moved around THAT much, but each move seems to be pretty far: born in Los Angeles, CA, then moved to Taipei, Taiwan, moved back to Lomita, CA, then to Mission Viejo, CA, then moved to Charlotte, NC.
