City Girl

I grew up in suburbia and went to college in a small town. However, I have lived most of my adult life in urban cities: New York City, Houston, Zaragoza (Spain), and now Los Angeles. There is just something special about city life that resonates with me. The diversity found in big cities, art and culture, open-minded attitudes, and access to good food and good theatre are all things that make city living attractive to me.

What city do you belong in?

You Belong in London

A little old fashioned, and a little modern.
A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.
A unique soul like you needs a city that offers everything.
No wonder you and London will get along so well.

Fun quiz! Here are my results:

Stylish and expressive, you were meant for Paris.
The art, the fashion, the wine!
Whether you're enjoying the cafe life or a beautiful park...
You'll love living in the most chic place on earth.

That was a fun quiz!

You're a big city soul with a small town heart which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome.
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand. And gorgeous Italian people - could life get any better?

I belong in London too!

We could be neighbors and get together for tea!

I came out London as well. I too have a city girl in me though I grew up in suburbia, though I admit that having children sure changed things! Suddenly the "life" of the city became noise that woke up my baby and the people walking by all the time became intrusions into my busy schedule. Of course, money being tighter left the attractions of the city out of reach so there wasn't much to pull me there any more. I know that without children though I would once again be drawn...

funny I'm apparently Paris....funnier even is that I really did NOT enjoy Paris when I was there in 2001.

However I'm still trying to come to terms with whether I was hostile because of all of the snooty Parisians.....or because I was just getting out of school and felt like I couldn't keep up with any of the snooty Parisians....I guess there's only one way to find out...another trip to Paris!

I wish I had gotten Paris or San two favorite cities..but I got Rome, just like ML. I guess I'll have to visit sometime, so I know whether I truly belong there or not! :)

I got London. Although, having lived outside of London for awhile, I think I've been pegged incorrectly. ;)
