"Which camera to take with you???"

First some background ... I am a completely amateur photographer who has fallen in love with taking pictures. Have taken some courses so I know enough to be dangerous but also enough to know that I really know nothing. In the last year I moved from a Canon T1i to the Nikon D7000. I got rid of the T1i. I then upgraded to the D600. But I kept the D7000 as the reason I upgraded was, paradoxically, that I fell in love with the D7000 in a way I never did with my Canon and could see marked improvement so I wanted to take the next step. Plus Nikon reduced the price, as you know, right near Christmas so I got a nice deal, or at least I think I have.

I love the new D600 but find myself still taking the D7000 out for a spin often. It got me thinking as to why I chose one over the other. (If I know what I am going to shoot there are some technical reasons but if I don't know what I want to shoot, it is still rather random for me. ) I have noticed in my short time here that many of you have multiple cameras. How do you decide which one to take with you? If you have a higher end camera (D800 or D4), why wouldn't you always take that one with you? (As good as the D600 is, the D7000 is certainly comparable, I find myself thinking about what lens I am going to take with me and the effects I will likely be shooting but I think the separation in models is less than what I have seen from others here.)

I am just curious. Also just wanted to say that I appreciate the conversations here, they are informative and interesting.
