      1. Yes. I’m a US baby. And I’m originally from Savannah, GA (the deep South). I live in North Carolina, though. But, home will always be home. 😊

      2. LOL. I don’t make these up. They’re on maps. LOL. I guess it was comprised to show “G” as in the first letter of “Georgia” and “A” as in the last. That’s the only thing I can think of to explain it. LOL.

      1. I hail from Ontario Canada.

        The “you” could be another person, it could be a pet or it could simply be you. I didn’t want to quantify it so I left out quotations.

      2. Yep I think not quantifying is best, leaving open to interpretation as to whether person or pet. For me I bought the house with the intention to make it a family home so that potential helps make it home.

  1. Always at home with my family.

    We were a Navy family. Luckily in the almost 9 years my husband was in, we only moved from our home state of Michigan, to South Carolina and Washington state. We now live in Oregon and hope to move back to Michigan to be closer to our families. No matter where we are though, we have each other and are home. We seem to make new family everywhere we go too 🙂 It’s amazing. I have family members all over the world thank to the military life 🙂
