Where do you hail from?



The wonderful and cray thing about the blog world is the people you meet from all over. I have 206 followers and I want to hear from ya'll, and all my readers and you lurkers too.

Would love to know where all of you are from. You don't have to name city, but just give the state if you would like.

It still amazes me that different people from all walks of life and different parts of the country can connect through this little piece of the internet. Wish we could all meet :(

And as a fun little add on, if you would like.... list at least one thing you like about where you live :)

So I'll start.... I'm from Leesburg, Florida... for those of you who don't already know.

And I would say my favorite thing about where I live is it seems no matter how big this area grows it still remains small and will always have that small town feel where everyone knows your name. And not to mention my area is very centrally located and has easy access to everything... and can't forget the beaches!!! :)

* P.S Thank ya'll so much for your sweet comments and thoughts on yesterdays post. Means so much. Appreciate and love ya'll.

Hi!

I'm from Trenton, GA (Close to Chattanooga, TN) and my favorite part of this area is that there is so much to do from the TN Aquarium to shopping and this area is gorgeous with the mountain scenery.

Love ya girl!

You know where I'm from...but for those that don't...SF, South Dakota!! :)

I think I like living here because my mom is here!!!! ;) Okay, I also like living here because I've grown up here and just enjoy everything around us.

I am from Dothan, AL.! Love it here would not live anywhere else... Except maybe the Mountains! But it really is great here!

Amber said...

Hi Lauren!

I currently reside in Northern West Virginia, just south of the Mason-Dixon line. I was born in Jacksonville, Florida and grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland. However I don't miss the hustle-bustle life at all. I love the calm and quiet peacefulness that surrounds me constantly here in WV. I couldn't imagine living anywhere else :)

Lindsey said...

Hi friend! I'm from the Detroit suburbs of Michigan and my fave part of the area is the best sushi restaurant around!=)

Becca said...

You know I'm from Atlanta :-) I love my city - even the sketchy side of it- which actually happens to be where we spend most of our time!!

I hail form the south...AR...which may have already known from the blog. I love the sweet tea around here, just ask my husband. I have a list of who makes the best in my head, and plan our meals around it accordingly, ha!

Hayley said...

Okay, so I am from a little further away...:-) I live in Johannesburg,South Africa. I love living here, we have the big city life, but we are not far from the African bushveld. South Africa is the most amazing country...you should all come for a vist :-)

Melissa said...

I am from Arkansas. I live in NWA. I love it here for the small town feel and the fact that it is growing so much and we almost have everything that a big city would have. Since my family doesn't live near me I have a great group of friends that I call family! I just love your blog! You are inspiring!

Holly said...

Rosie said...

Can I come live with you please? Sounds great!
I live in China Spring, TX. It used to be a tiny country town & now has boomed into an overpacked suburb. But we love it. Oh and everyone around here says they are from Waco b/c it's the main city. But I don't like to admit that ;)
Like this post!

Autumn said...

I am from Tulsa, OK. I like living here because we are in the middle of the U.S., with easy access to everything.

I'm just a lurker, but I am from Lumberton, Tx. I love that I feel safe in this not so little town.

Kassie said...

That's interesting that you're from Leesburg! I went to college at Stetson, if you know it. It's sort of near there. Now I live in the Ft. Lauderdale suburbs, and love the beach, of course! :)

Holly said...

The Burg.. 'nough said. ;)

Cary Dale Taylor said...

I am from north Louisiana. I've lived in the south too. The south has great food. The north is just what you would expect of the south and bible belt area. People are nice and churches are everywhere. It is home. {I wouldn't mind moving away though :)}

Christine said...

Cute idea to find out where everyone is. I am currently stationed in Pensacola, FL. :) I'd say the best thing about the area are the beaches...but it's too cold right now for that.

Heather said...

I am a TN girl, not a fan of the Volunteers, you know who I pull for! :) But now live for the time being in Houston, TX.

Hey there. I am a first-time visitor to your blog. Ha! God surely works in mysterious ways. I was at Big Momma's blog reading about Caroline's dating advice when I clicked on your id and thus was led to your blog. I only read your 2 previous blogs when I saw your post regarding your upcoming surgery. Like you, I have a bilateral hearing loss and thus your posts about your pre-op had me intrigued. I haven't taken the time to read further but I just want to say that whatever has led you to this point, I truly believe that God has great things in store for you so keep the faith!

p.s. I am from the Big Apple but was raised in the Pacific Northwest :)

Nicole said...

Jordan said...

I am from southern MI. I only like that this is where I grew up. All my friends and family live here.

Leesie said...

What a fun post. I'm from sunny Southern California, right by Disneyland. I love the sunny days and that if we ever want we can get to the dessert, the beach and the mountains all within about 3 hours of each other. I'm far enough from the craziness of LA, but close enough if I want to visit for the day.

jennypilgrim said...

I am from Alabama, about 60 miles northeast of Birmingham. Love your blog.

Ashley @ {Let Go, Laughing} said...

Justin and Jessica said...

SF, South Dakota ... and I'm still willing to send some of our 25+ inches of snow your way. :-)

Jill said...

Cute idea! I live in San Antonio, TX. I like it b/c people are friendly and there are tons of fun things to do.

Joyfull said...

This is my first visit here and I thought I would check in too! I live in North Florida about 1 1/2 hours from Jax. It is a small town and we love it! Stay warm, we Floridians are not used to this cold stuff!!

Minnesota Girl said...

I like living here because we have 4 distinct seasons.

Happy New Year!
