I'm 30 years old and living in my 16th home. Growing up, my family moved frequently for my dad's job. I'd tell you what his job was, but then I'd have to kill you. As an adult, I've moved for all different reasons - graduate school, a job, a boy. I never minded moving because it lead to a new adventures, new discoveries, new friends and a new home to decorate. Here's a list of all the places I've lived:
- Lincoln, AL
- Mt. Morris, PA
- Lewisburg, WV
- Tracy, CA
- Shenandoah Junction, WV
- Coral Springs, FL - Blue House
- Coral Springs, FL - Pink House
- Coral Springs, FL - Townhouse
- Orlando, FL - Dorm #1
- Orlando, FL - Dorm #2
- Orlando, FL - Off Campus Student Housing
- Goodyear, AZ
- Phoenix, AZ
- Avondale, AZ
- Mesa, AZ
- Litchfield Park, AZ
The lease on the house I'm currently renting ends July 30, 2012. Now that I'm self-employed and single, I can move anywhere in the world that has a post office. Isn't that a wonderfully daunting thought? I could try big city life in New York or Chicago. I could take my pink cowboy boots to the country. I could literally move ANYWHERE in the world!
For six weeks I thought about what my life would look like in all kinds of settings and even visited a few. Then I finally made up mind. I'm staying put. There are pros and cons about every place, but what it all boiled down to was that I couldn't think of convincing reason to leave Arizona. This state is beautiful and full of opportunities and people I have yet to uncover. Yes, it's hot, but I love to swim. Plus it's tough to beat an Arizona sunset.
Where would you go if you could live anywhere in the world?
