It’s funny because last week I was having a conversation with Stephanie and she asked me where I was from. This question has always confused me because I never know what people want to know when they ask that.
Do they mean where was I born? Where I grew up? Where I live? None of those questions have the same answer for me. I grew up in a military family so we moved around growing up. I won’t say we moved a lot because there were families that moved every year or two. We moved on average every 4 years, so that’s a lot if you never moved growing up but seems like nothing if you switched schools every grade.
So I’ll share the answer to all of the versions of “where are you from?” that I can think of. I was born on an air base in Spain. I don’t consider myself “from” anywhere. I’ve lived in Spain, Germany, South Dakota, Arizona, and Kentucky. I currently live in the Canary Islands (if you’ve never heard of them, check out my local travel posts or Google for pictures of some gorgeous islands you don’t hear much about globally). So there you have it, an ordinary question that I figured I could use as a blog prompt and share a little about myself.
