Lessee...I was born in Austin, capitol of the great state of Texas. After that, I spent several years at Exit 9, North Brunswick, New Jersey. After NJ was a brief stint in Arlington, Virginia, then Cape Carteret North Carolina (at the beach), and now my family's in Greenville, NC. (A little further inland.) I spend most of the year in the lovely mountain city of Asheville, NC.
I have no problem admitting where I was born or where I've been. However, I'm also proud of my family that came from other places and enjoy celebrating my heritage.
