I was born in Detroit MI, but my parents were from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Lots of snow up there and a whole lot of winter! My dad had the right idea though, why would anyone choose to live there when one didn't have to do so? We moved away and traveled away many times but he always wanted to return home once he was away long enough.
When I was four, we even lived in Texas for a bit over a year and visited Mexico. Mostly I remember a little silver and turquoise bracelet they purchased for me - little rosebuds linked together and the turquoise were little beads - one each in the center of each little rose. I had it for quite a long time. Lost in a fire that consumed our home when I was in junior high.
