I was actually born in Carmichael, California, just outside of Sacramento. After I was born, the family moved to Texas and Alabama while I was too young to remember much, and then back to California just in time for me to start first grade. So, when I think of "home", California is it, since I actually did my growing up there. We had a nice house in a nice neighborhood right next to my school, and we were in a good spot to visit San Francisco and Los Angeles (Disneyland!) several times a year.
