Born and raised in the Springs, went to DU for both undergrad and grad (studied abroad in Austria for a semester - the only other place I've "lived"), married in the Springs this past summer and my husband and I have started our lives together in Denver. LOVE this place

I'm from Sunburg, Minnesota, I go to school in Fargo, North Dakota, and I have worked on Forest Service and Park Service lands in New Mexico and Colorado the past four summers. Here comes number five! Since then I have fallen in love with a girl from Colorado and in love with the West U.S. in general. So yea, I may be living there full time soon.

Unfortunately I'm not. I'm originally from Laredo, Texas but moved here in 98 and have lived in Boulder, Denver & Littleton.

Critics have argued since I don't remember my first 2.9 years, I'm not native.
Maybe someone could expand on this because I don't buy it.

Denver '74-'77
Milwaukee, WI '77-'08

Visiting CO every other year, I finally had enough sense to move back to Denver 3 years ago.

May the 4th be with you...

Definitely naturalized. I was born in Houston and lived there for three years but I've been here ever since

Born in New Mexico, lived there until I was three and a half, and have been here ever since!
