|"Headed East" MJP Day 27|
As an adult I moved around a bit too. I lived several places in Richmond then moved to Maryland in my mid twenties. Both of my children were born there and we had a beautiful little house in Columbia. Then we were transferred and ended up back in Virginia, this time in Fredericksburg. I'd already spent 4 years there when I was in college, never thinking I'd ever want to live there. Yet it's the place I now call my home. When I was going through my divorce in 2003 I decided to buy a little cape cod house on a quiet street in the city. From the moment I moved in I felt I was home. When my children left for college it was time for me to move again, although it's a temporary arrangement. I got married again and agreed to live in Houston part time as long as I didn't have to sell my precious house. I've always been lucky to find caretakers to stay there and whenever I get a chance I go home. Because that's where I want to be.
