It's where I spent the first 17 years of my life; it's where my grandparents live; it's where my cousins are raising their children. However, since my parents don't live there anymore, it makes it a little strange to go home. I still try to get back every couple of years.
Dan and I went back for Thanksgiving, but we'll be spending Christmas and New Years in Charlotte.
While in St. Louis, we got to see my family, to meet a lot of new additions, eat toasted ravioli, drink beer, go to the Zoo, and stuff ourselves with IMOs pizza.
