    • I was born in New York City and my family actually lived there until I was about 8 years old. That’s when we moved to  North Carolina or “the country” as we liked to call it back then. At first, I didn’t like living in the country, but as time passed, I grew to love it here.

      Everything here is so beautiful especially this time of the year when the flowers are in full bloom. Everything here is so quiet and serene.  

      I may have been born in the city, but I will always be a “CAROLINA GIRL” at heart.

        • I will always love NC a well.  I was born in Boston, Massachusetts, but I’ve been in NC since the early 80’s.  I went to NC Central U and never made it back home - well actually went home for about two years, but made my way back and only make it home now about twice a year.  I do not miss Boston, but I miss my family terribly.  I especially miss ‘girls day out’ - the days when my mom and my sisters get together and go out and do something - dinner, shopping or a weekend get-a-way. They do plan events when I visit, but it’s just not the same when I hear about the trips they plan and I am not present.  Enough of the pity party - I made my choice to be here and I love it!

        • Awww....

          I grew up spending more time in the countryside, small towns (pop at most 3,000) than in the city.  Loved it so much.

          Although I have lived the last 30 years in Austin, Texas, I’m still gravitating towards finding a house in the country.  Hopefully, that dream will become a reality - one day - one day soon! :)

        • Was born and raised a “Carolina Girl“, from learning to shag at the age of 4 to spending my summers and weekends at Myrtle Beach to riding Tweetsie Railroad as a kid to learning to swim in the Catawba River.  I don’t live there just now but am doing my best to get back there asap. There’s no place better in the world and after years of living in big cities (Detroit, DC, Atlanta, Colorado Springs, San Francisco, Los Angeles) I cannot get back to the country and the good life fast enough.

        • Well, I’m not a Carolina girl, but I was reared in the “Country”  way back in the woods.  Where you had to drive 30 minutes to find daylight.  But, for the last 30 years I’ve lived my life as a city girl first 15 then a suburban girl last 15.  Someday, I want to make it back to the piney woods, hopefully after son graduates and has a couple of years of schooling behind him. estatic
