Yeah, I wish I liked it more lol. The mountains are really nice. But I live in the Eastern part in a retirement town so most of the people in my town are a but more, artsy I guess. Nothing wrong with being artsy, but they have an attitude about it. Yes! I just looked and have it. Sorry I didn’t see it before, I was expecting the site to email me I had a message and it didn’t. I’ll read and respond to it 🙂
My uncle lives in Buffalo. I’ve been before and it’s pretty nice. They get a good amount of snow and my cousins are in a good school. I wouldn’t be totally opposed to living in the North East. I’ve heard the more rural parts of NY, VT, New Husband, and ME are really pretty.
Nice! I’ve never been to Napa Valley. I’ve been to LA before though. It was nice from what I remember, but lots of people and crazy traffic!

I am from the Northeast, currently live in VA and will be moving to the UK when I get married. I lived there for several years which is how I met my British fiance. I think no matter where you live the grass is always going to be greener. As much I like the increased vacation and maternity time I’ll get when I move to the UK, I grew up imagining I’d have a big spacious American house and that’s just not going to happen in the UK. The houses there are much smaller and housing costs are astronomical at the moment. And while the US might have only been around for a few hundred years, I think North America itself has just as much history as the UK (Sorry, this isn’t directed at you. I have a cousin who moved to the UK around the same time as I did and she’s always going on about how the US “doesn’t have culture”, so it’s a pet peeve of mine. Every country in the world has A culture.)
Can I ask what you don’t like about the Northeast? I’m from Boston which is very liberal but there are definitely parts of the northeast that are mixed. New Hampshire was the first place I thought of based on your description. And I like to describe my area of Massachusetts as politically liberal, but definitely more conservative/traditional on a social level.

Oh no offense taken 🙂 The US has lots of culture, I’m just a huge nerd and love medievil type buildings and history haha, so the UK really appeals to me. My town now only dates back to the late 1700s. I guess I mostly judge based on the cities and more liberal parts up there. I’m pretty down the middle myself, maybe slightly more conservative. Also from the people I’ve met from there. I met one girl from Boston who is really nice. And I had a co-worker from Maine who was super cool. But in my town now there are a lot of retired people from NY who are really rude and opinionated. I know there are really nice areas up there (and nice people). I also like to think I’m a pretty friendly and hospitable person. So I like to bring gifts to new neighbors, offer to help to more elderly individuals, etc. I’m just worried that I’ll face more of the negative parts than the positive parts and that people there may be taken back by that and see it as intrusive instead of nice. I hope that makes sense without sounding like I’m bashing the North. I’m not trying too. I’ve just never really been up there so I only go off assumptions that I have. I hear the Fall time up North is gorgeous though!

I say Colorado, Washington state, or Oregon. Colorado for sure though. Distinct seasons, plenty of snow, and BEAUTIFUL mountains. And Washington and Oregon are also gorgeous but don’t snow as much as Colorado.

Thanks! Colorado is added to my list then 🙂 Hopefully we can take a trip out there soon and scope it out

maybe it’s worth checking out?
and after a month of it raining everyday and grey skies and it getting dark about 4pm….I really like the idea of living in California too!
