I lived in MD from the time I was 7yrs. old (was born and lived in Connecticut till then) till this past August 2009. Then I moved in with my BF in Northern VA in August 2009. I still go up almost every weekend to my parents and brother up in MD though. It's only like 45 min. away but it feels much shorter. It is short enough that I can go up for the day and come back :) I like living close to home still. I always say I have 2 homes. my MD home and VA home, lol. Same goes for my dog, cus she comes up to MD with me whenever I go up, she knows the difference between the two states, no joke :P.
