emoticon My husband and I both grew up at Sparta, Illinois & met when I was in high school & he was then working. He went in the military & retired from the Navy. We were stationed at Great Lakes near Chicago and then in California, so we finally came here in 1981 and I stayed while he went to Jacksonville (which I hated) & to New Orleans(I didn't bother to go over there) and he finally retired in 1993.
I wish I'd been born in Pcola as I think it would have been so much fun to grow up in beautiful East Hill, or North Hill during the '50/60s as there was so much to do here. I love looking at old pictures of Pcola back then.

I'm a Florida native, born in Perry (near Tally). I moved to Pensacola after high school, met my hubby (who is from Pennsylvania) and we have been here ever since.

I am from San Diego where I met my hubby who was in the Navy. We ended up here because when he was stationed here he really liked it. So when he retired from the Navy we bought a house and moved here.

We lived in Virginia Beach and had snow at Xmas which was really cool. Pun intended. Loved having a white Xmas.

I live in FWB and not technicallly from Pensacola. However, I was born in Panama City, Fl while my dad was stationed with the Navy after WWII so I guess I am a native. Was raised in MD and Delaware and came here with the Air Force in 1978. Love it here. Can't beat the weather but a bit of cold would be nice.

Pursue the things that make you feel alive and fill you with joy and balance.!

Are you a native of Pensacola, and if not where did you come from and what brought you here?
