I am from  <a specific item from your childhood home>

from  <two products or objects from your past>

I am from  <a phrase describing your childhood home>

and  <more description of your childhood home>

I am from  <a plant, tree or natural item from your past>

whose  <personify that natural item>

I am from  <two objects from your past>

from  <a family name> and <another family name>

I am from <a family trait or tendency> and <another family trait or tendency>

and from <another family trait, habit or tendency>

from <another family trait, habit or tendency>

I am from <a religious phrase or memory>

I am from <an ancestor> and <another ancestor>

from <two foods from your family history>

from <a specific event in the life of an ancestor>

and from <another detail from the life of an ancestor>

<a memory or object you had as a child>

I am from those moments
