Born and raised in L.A. I moved to Miami for a year, then to Philly for another year and D.C. last year. All places are nice and I did as much as I can in all places, but there is nothing like home. People in the NE said that I was too laid back, must be the west coast way of living. Can't imagine myself moving anywhere else.

Born in Houston TX, but raised in California. I've been living here over 50 years. I have visited many states and many countries and this is where I choose to be.

The future belongs to those that believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Born and raised (59 years) and I'm 3rd generation.......... My 3 boys are 4th generation and my granddaughter is 5th generation. (my husband too)

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

All of my glorious life!!!!!!!

Many backs have broken from lesser weight I know
I was born to carry more than I can hold
Even though I’ll stumble
Even though I’ll fall

I have lived in California since I was born. I moved away for 2 years, after I maried my Hubby (he was in the Navy) but now we are back...to be honest... after living in VA and MS... I would prefer to live in another state rather than Cali. I KNOW I KNOW blasphemy... but honestly... this state is too expensive!!!

I grew up in California, but joined the military when I was 18. I moved to the east coast and stayed there for about 12 years...but now I'm back and I think I'm here to stay!!! I've been back now for about 8 months. So if anyone lives on the Central Coast and needs a buddy let me know!!! I would love to meet some people to work out with or hang with. :)

I lived in southern CA back in the 1980's for about 4 years. Moved around the country quite a bit and then found my way to the northern part of the state in 1999. I've been here ever since.

If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up!

Since 2003. Right after high school graduation, I moved out here with my parents. 6 years later my high school sweetheart decided to join me, so slowly but surely it's become home.

I have lived here in California all my life. I was in Southern Cal until I was 9 years old. I have lived here on the Central Coast since then. My little town was actually a Jeopardy question a couple years ago, "What California towns has the perfect climate?(or something like that) NIPOMO. Can't imagine living anywhere else.

Moved to southern California when I was 6. Here until I was 37, then left for Boston in 2003. Came back to California in 2007. There are definite differences between east coast people and west coast people. California is home!
