    Default Do you have a place?

    I came across a site where you can have coordinates for "your place" engraved on a bracelet. With "your place" being described as:
    "There's one dot on the map that holds more of your deepest memories than any other place. It's where you fell in love, found your tribe or risked it all. It's where you were born - or maybe, it's where you were reborn into a braver, stronger version of you."
    I love the idea but, for the life of me, can't pinpoint one particular place. This made me curious, do people usually have "a place" like that?

    Even though I consider my family of origin and my marriage/family the greatest sources of love and happiness in my life, without a doubt the first thing I thought of was the place where I went to college, and specifically a house that I lived in with 5 guys. It changed me and my life in many ways.

    Where we live now, for sure. But, also my happy place is at DMB concerts which could be anywhere. Maybe the birthplace of the band instead? Charlottesville. I'd get one of each. And maybe my hometown, too. Ha!

    It's a clever idea to sell more bracelets!

    Well, sure. Kinda reminds me of the "buy a star" thing.

    I've seen this as a hanging for a wall, too, on Etsy. The coordinates of the house or important locations.

    I like the idea. Not sure I have a particular place but the one that came to mind is somewhere in the Boston Common, where I went on my first date with DH, after having dinner. We have a photo (mass sold) of it hanging in our living room.

    I've seen something very similar... I'd love to have several with coordinates from different places that are special to me, but if I had to choose just one if do the city of Seattle. Lots of great memories from growing up near by, went to college there, tons of my friends still live there, but most importantly despite living away for 15 years it just feels like home.

    Hahaha. I actually have the coordinates to the exact spot we got married:
    Lat: 23* 47'N
    Long: 073* 27' W

    The only reason I know this is because we got married aboard a cruise ship, and where given the exact coordinates of where the ship was when we were married.

    If it wasn't for that, I don't know that I'd have a place.
