    Question Do you live in the same state where you grew up?

    How about the same town?

    I've lived in Mass all my life. I moved from the town where I grew up to buy a house since my hometown's housing prices are through the roof I live about 10 miles from there now.

    How about you guys?

    No. I was born in FL, moved to NY, stayed there until teens, then moved to NM, then back to NY, and now to MI.

    If it wasn't for Gabe's employment we would not be living in MI.
    *sniff sniff, I don't like it here at all*

    I still live in the same state but not the city where I was born.

    We moved around alot when I was growing up, but after my parents divorced Mom & us girls settled in this little town where I later met & married dh, but now we live an hour north of that town because of a job transfer that dh took

    But all mine & dh's family is still living in that town

    I was born in Maryland and lived in PA with my Grandparents for a couple of years. My parents and I moved to New Jersey and then my parent divorced. My Mom and I moved to CA, to be close to some of her family. I met my husband in Sacramento and now we live about ten miles outside of Sacramento. My DH was born and raised here. I always wanted to move around a little but, looks like we will be staying here.

    Default living in the house I was born in

    I live in PA. I got married and moved about 20 miles away. Then my father pasted away and my mother moved in with my grandmother so we moved into the house I was born and raised in. Now that my grandmother has pasted away we are making the house bigger and mom is moving back. I fell lucky that my mother and husband get along so great. Boy it feels so good to be back home!!! Oh and by the way I married a city boy and moved him to the country and he loves it.

    Like JALCCLARK, I grew up in Kansas-Manhattan. My family moved to Southern California a year after I graduated from high school. I have been here in California ever since!! Dh had always lived in California, infact we live about 25 miles from the hospital he was born in!!

    No, I grew up in SC but now live in NC. I truly miss SC at times because to me the state is a lot prettier than NC. Not sure how long we will be in NC since dh is in the Army. Hopefully, for a little while longer because we bought a house in '98 and know that selling it would be VERY hard to do right now. When dh retires from the Army, we are thinking about moving to Kansas, which is where he is from originally, or to Colorado.

    Hugs,
    Debbie

    Lived in NH all my life. I live about an hour from the town I grew up in. Had to move because the house/land prices there are rediculous, as with the town politics.

    I live 3 miles from where I grew up, DH is 1 1/2 miles from where he grew up-his parents still live there. Our girls will go to the same high school we did. Some of the teachers are even still there (scary!)
