MS, AL, TX, CA, PA, back to CA. Grew up in the same home till college, lived several places in the Houston area and two different places in So CA. Spent 4-5 months per year in the UK for a few years, but never actually lived there. My favorite place is So CA, where we live in a beach community with great walkability.
