In other words, she's living quite the life.
|All this moving can make you wonder where "home" is.|
I moved five times in my first 15 years. That's not nearly as much as an Army brat, but it's still a lot. I guess technically I'm "from" Grand Rapids, Michigan, where we lived when I was in high school. It's a lovely place to visit. But it's not home.
Home is about identity. It helps define you. I hope Emily can say with pride she is from Quincy. Growing up in Quincy (she was 5 when we moved here) served her well, I think.
I miss her. I'm glad she'll be home for a few days, with a big wide world awaiting.
