After moving nine times in eleven years, I thought I would always have a bit of wanderlust. I wanted to be near a city, and country, and mountains, and open water, and live where it is diverse, etc. My list went on and on. I wanted seasons but not winter like they had in Chicago, etc. In 1989, I moved here thinking I'd stay for "a year or so." Love it....never left...maybe I'll move in a year or so.

I moved here to Raleigh with my job. I always dreamed of moving away from Maine and this was my first opportunity to do so. I never felt like I fit in Maine, my entire family is there, and I love them dearly, but I always felt like I should be somewhere else.

At first I wasn't crazy over this area, but in time it really grew on me, and I now love it here. I love my partner, my home, and I even tolerate my job

I like the weather, I could deal with less humidity in the summer, but the mild winters more than make up for it.

I love Raleigh! I've been there on holiday about 5 times when me and my family used to go to the US once a year.
Oh how I miss those times...

I live here because of Mark, and I love the scenery. The only thing that stinks is my family is about 3000 miles away.

I just got my King Arthur catalog in the mail. Seeing you live so close, do you think you could come over to my house and hide all my credit cards?

That's one of the GOOD things about where I live!

I live in Florida and my Brother and both sisters live in Maryland and Vermont. When they ask when I'm coming up for a visit, I tell them "People don't LEAVE Florida for vacation, they COME TO Florida for vacation. Vermont? What in the heck is in Vermont? MY back yard is larger than Vermont!
