Carolins final days in Georgia -Homeplace "Cornerview"

Home is where the heart lies and for many years I considered my home to be Alaska or to be more exact Anchorage where I grew up. We moved to Anchorage the summer between 5th and 6th grade. I was almost eleven. My step-father had visions of a Grisly Adams life in his head and my mom was so in love with him that she followed with me in tow. Moving to Alaska was actually a good thing for our family as higher salaries awaited and a better education system too. Our previous home was California where I was born. Even many years after moving away from Alaska I considered it home, but now after living here in Georgia for 8 years I consider this home. My eyes swell when I hear the song Georgia and I feel a sense of pride that I get to live in such an amazing place. If you would have asked me when my husband and I first got married what I thought of living in Georgia would be like I couldn't imagine it. I had no idea of what life might be like in Georgia. I love it here. The weather is fantastic and there is always something to do. Carolin went home on Sunday after being with us this past month. She didn't leave though without getting to see this fantastic state. I hope she had a great time. Some consider home a place and others consider it where your family is, as for me it is both. I don't know if we will live here the rest of our lives, but one thing I know is that Georgia will "Always be on my Mind."

Never a dull moment when you live in Georgia.  A visit to Six Flags, the Capitol building, or Martin Luther Kings home is just around the corner.

I agree - Georgia is a lovely state. I've lived in Atlanta and Macon and have wonderful memories of both.

It's obvious Carolin has had a great time! No matter where the place is that we call home as long as our heart is there!

Looks like you had a wonderful time! And it's so true that there's no place like home.
