Like There Is Any Easy Answer to That Question
It is funny when people ask where I am from or where home is, I never really know what to say.
I was born in Dallas (Texas), spent my collegiate years in Boulder (Colorado), settled in Birmingham (Alabama) for the eight years after college, and currently live and work in Nashville (Tennessee). I truly believe that I have resided in the best places this country has to offer — minus perhaps Austin (Texas) which would be next on my list.
Even though I spent my formative years in Texas and still head back frequently to eat Mexican food and visit my parents, I would venture to call Birmingham “home.” Birmingham is the home of the restaurants I crave and the people I love. It is where I met Molly (my dog) and where I owned my first property. It is where I established my independence and where I can retreat when I need to be taken care of.
Now that I am focused on building a life in Nashville, I wonder if and when this feeling will shift and it will truly become “home.”
So now I will ask you…Where are do you consider “home”?
