Neither DH nor I are big fans of the Mid-Atlantic
So, after college, I moved 9 times in 11 years figuring that I never would find a place to settle. (My family had seven generations buried in a cemetery in my hometown, so no idea from where the love of wandering came.) Southern California was one of the locations where I lived. I found that I HAD to have seasons. Real seasons. So moved here intending to stay a few years, and 30+ years later, here I am.
I want a full 3 months of each winter, spring, summer and fall. I usually get it. I love that I can be in a city, on the ocean, in the country or even mountains within 1.5 hours. But best of all, I love sailing and we have the bay that allows me to float about from roughly April 15 to Nov 15.
Besides, if anyone wanted me to move, they should have spoken before this kitchen remodel. You move here. To tempt you, keep in mind that our boat has on-board sanitation, hot/cold water, and a small china cabinet.

I'm sure they did! Those kinds of gifts are always special.
