Will I always be a "yankee" living in Florida?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Keller Williams

Even after living in Florida for almost 4 years, I sill get called a "Yankee" when ever anyone finds out where I am from.  Okay, I admit it, I was born and raised in Wisconsin, but that should not be held against me as that was totally not my choice, but ,my parents.  How about all my summers and most holidays (and that is bunches) were spent in Aiken, SOUTH Carolina...does that not count for even a little bit?  And how about when I had my choice to live ANYWHERE (after my divorce) I CHOSE to move down south??  To Florida (aka "God's Waiting Room").  I bought a house, got a job, and this past July I even married a "local" guy, actually born and raised in Century, Florida....I think this should count for something.

Just the other day my husband was saying to my mother-in-law, "Oh, Karen doesn't get it, she is just a Yankee"....when his mother sat straight up and looked at him and said "Oh no, Karen is not a Yankee- she is southern."
