Several years ago, after Matt and I were married but before we had the slightest notion that we'd wind up doing what we're doing where we're doing it, we took a quiz at a nifty site called FindYourSpot.com. This site questions you about everything from what kind of weather you prefer to how you spend your free time, then spits out a list of places it thinks you'd like to live.
Back in the day, the No. 1 town this site recommended for us was Hickory, N.C. Yesterday I took the quiz again after Kate linked to it in a post on her wonderful preservation blog, and I was surprised that Hickory again came up as the top spot for me. (Hendersonville, N.C., and Greenville, S.C., were also in my Top 10, as were four cities in California and one each in Georgia, Utah and Oregon. I told Spot to eliminate big cities as well as anything in the desert or the plains, but otherwise, the results were based solely on my answers to the quiz questions.)
I may have driven through Hickory and Hendersonville, but I've never spent extended time either place; maybe I should. As most of you probably have picked up on by now, I LOVE Greenville, so that was a great call by the site.
If you take this quiz, let me know where Spot places you!
