    I loved reading your list! I’m sure it’s not surprising that I can identify with many of them. After traveling through most of the country, I can say Vermont is still my favorite state 🙂

      Do you think it’s (VT) in our blood? It was our grandparents favorite state too. I’m glad you enjoyed my list. It was a bit of a chore to do, but I’m glad that I did it. Might be more interesting to have other people write a list of who I am 🙂 Joyce

        I didn’t know VT was their favorite, that’s pretty cool. I think we inherit a lot of things that stay in our blood throughout the generations no matter where life may take us 🙂


I love to hear from readers! Thank you so much for taking time to comment. May you have a blessed day!
