I'll start with my hometown. I grew up in Ellington, Connecticut. When I was living there it was a beautiful, almost old-fashioned farm town. Seriously, there were more cows than people and laws against fast food establishments. Although I didn't care for Ellington when I was younger, as I've grown up I've learned to appreciate the fact that I grew up in a clean, quiet place.
My city now is the place I've come to think of as my true home - Greenville, South Carolina. What do I love about it? The cheap cost of living, the warm[er] weather, the size (not too big OR too small), and just downtown in general. Shops, awesome restaurants, fun bars...what more could I ask for?
I'm lucky to have lived in some really amazing places in my life, and I've seen both the good and the bad in most of them (though one place I would never move back to or suggest to anyone I cared about as a place to live, heh). Honestly, sometimes it takes stepping away and viewing a place from a distance to determine how you truly feel or felt about it as a home. As for that, I can merely say that I'm glad I was able to see how awesome Greenville truly was and end up back here in the end :)
