I have thought about this notion of "where do I belong" recently as I spent a week at home preparing for my sister's wedding. It was a gorgeous wedding (she was a beautiful bride!) in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. It is funny how the first day back in the south feels strange, the second day a little less so, and then by the third day I am completely acclimated and ready to move back. I really miss being close to family and friends and nature. I miss the pace of life.
That being said, I'm so glad that Chris and I are currently living in Brooklyn. It has given me so many new perspectives on life and there are an abundance of opportunities that we would not have had otherwise. Also, I think it's great to live somewhere different and far away as newlyweds. It helps your marriage to grow even stronger.
