It's the second week of 52 questions in 52 weeks so let's get started with today's topic:
2.When and where were you born? Describe your home, your neighborhood and the town you grew up in.
|San Antonio, TX|
Ok, so I was born on January 31st in San Antonio, Texas. As far as the home and neighborhood I grew up in I was an "Army brat" meaning we moved a lot when I was little. I lived in Texas, upstate New York, San Antonio again, Germany and then North Carolina. I feel that as far as a home I grew up in they were all very varied. I mean I lived in an old farm house with lots of land including my own vegetable garden when we lived in New York but in Germany I finally had my own room but the house we lived in was not detached and in fact had one-two rooms per floor so think 7 floors including the basement.
Towns also varied. San Antonio is a large metro-center and I loved growing up there, yes I have been to the Alamo and RiverWalk numerous times whenever anyone came to visit. But, in New York we were outside of Rochester in a rural part of the country and in Germany we were in the suburbs of a large city. In North Carolina my parent's have lived in the same house now for over 10 years so it feels very rooted. It is part of a large town but still suburbs and I am glad they are only a short drive away from me now.
So as far as the Miranda Lambert song of the House that Built me goes, I have multiple homes over multiple cities/states/countries.
