I was born in Jersey City, NJ and my family moved to Woodridge NJ when I was a teenager. After getting married (44 years ago on Aug.22) We moved to our present home in North Arlington NJ.
We had planned our second trip to Italy on September 15, but two weeks ago my wife slipped and fell while entering my daughter's pool. She broke her femur in 3 places and had to have a rod inserted in the bone. She just got out of rehab 2 days ago. We will have to cancel our trip but if she progresses quickly, we plan to go in October. If not, we will wait until the spring.

I was born in New York City then my father was called up into the US Air Force - so I then lived in Tokyo, Japan, and in various states: Florida, Wyoming, Kentucky, Oregon, Virginia, Ohio, and Washington, DC. Currently live in Sonoma County, California (the best of them all!) - about half an hour north of San Francisco.

Hi all,
Just found this thread today as it popped up in the "first 50". I sometimes get to page 2, but not if I'm in a hurry.
Anyway, born and raised and still live in downstate Illinois. I'm an elementary teacher. My husband and I LOVE TO TRAVEL. We manage to travel together during my Christmas and spring breaks.

I was born in a small town in Quebec, Canada and when I was 11 years old, my father decided that the Canadian winters were too much for him. We moved to Santa Monica, California. I lived there for the lates 60's through the 80s' (except for 5 years in Monterey, California), then in '89, I moved to Sacramento, California.
Not the most exciting place, but only 1 1/2 hour away from San Francisco, not a bad deal!

Who have you met from this board. You mentioned in a post that many of you have met up? When and where?

I was born in Los Angeles, raised in California, went away for college, lived in England and Italy (France briefly) and now live in San Diego.

Born and raised in Detroit....but moved 10 years ago to the lovely little town of Petoskey, right on Lake Michigan...land of the breathtaking sunsets.....but, I'm such an east-coaster at heart that I figured I must've lived THERE in my previous life!

Born in Stockholm, Sweden.

Lived in:

Stockholn, Sweden
Seattle, Washington
Rochester, NY
Karjaa, Finland,
Turku, Finland
Danielson, CT
Storrs, CT (college years!)
Stamford, CT
Dorchester, MA (only 3 months fortunately)
Medford, MA

I now live in Concord, MA and love it there! After all that moving about, it definitely feels like home. My only regret is that considering the stratospheric home prices, I may never be able to own my own home in this lovely, historic town.

I was born and raised in west Texas; Crane, Andrews, Odessa/Midland (once home to both President Bush and Bush). Summer before college, worked on an offshore drilling rig in Alaska, living alternately in Anchorage and offshore. Went to college in San Angelo, TX where I met my DH. Had to move back to Odessa/Midland due to DH trying to hang on in oil & gas industry (mid-1980's). I worked in property management. While there this time, my DH received world-wide exposure in the media for his role in helping rescue baby Jessica McClure.

In 1989, moved to the Dallas, TX area where DH and I both got heavily into real estate. Against all odds at the time, we managed to succeed. Built a large business of our own selling houses, we simultaneously bought a RE/MAX franchise and established a new office in a fast growing area. We owned and operated it for 7 years and enjoyed it's success. It was time to take it to the next level, but we valued our family more so sold it. I retired, so to speak, to be the primary caregiver of our teens (and shop for travel destinations ), while DH continues to sell out of the same office which continues to grow and flourish.
