    Maine Is Where My Heart Is

    I'm a military kid, so I don't have a traditional home like most people. I've never lived in any city more than 2 years, and although my mom owns two of the houses we've lived in, neither of them is a place that I feel like I really belong. But, next to my college, Maine is the...

    Ellsworth!

    I'm from Ellsworth, Maine. I've lived in Maine my whole short life. Everyone talks about how beautiful it is, but I am just so used to it that I don't see it anymore. Then again, it's the only place I've ever lived. I'm sure if I lived in a different state, then came back, I'd...

    From Maine

    I was born in Maine and have lived here my whole life with the exception of just a few years when I lived in Connecticut.  I enjoy Maine and could not see myself moving elsewhere.
