I feel like I grew up in DC. My mom moved here during WWII and worked for the OSS. She loved DC. My dad was in the Navy. They met and married in DC. Even though they moved away before 1950, I grew with stories of DC. When I moved here for a job, it felt like home immediately. When I walked around town, one of their stories would come to mind. I go to the same church my mom attended. No matter where I live, DC will always be home.
