  • Wedding: December 2008

Argh, Bree, I hear you — my in-laws live in Auburndale (near Lakeland) and there’s a strong possibility that if Mr. December gets into grad school at USF Tampa that we’ll be moving in with them. You mention just about every reason why I do NOT want to move to Central FL! You can only go to Disney so many times, especially because my Mother-In-Law works there (my hubby did too at one point) and it’s just kind of "eh" for all of us.

We don’t mind Flagstaff, but we don’t see ourselves staying here forever. I would love to move back to Portland, but my Fiance doesn’t like it there too much. He says it’s too "hippy dippy" for him… he’s insane. My whole family is in NE Ohio and we’re thinking of moving there in a few years. People always give us grief when we tell them were thinking of moving to Cleveland, but after being away for the last twelve years I sort of miss it and my Fiance really likes it there. Who knows? We’ll see. I wouldn’t mind leaving the US for a while either.

i’m in the intermountain west and really love it here.  i hike and run in the canyons.  ski all i want in the winters.  sometimes i wonder if we’ll move, but i just don’t know.  my mister has a family business going on but he may want out, so we wouldn’t have to stay.  i grew up moving around like crazy so its easy on me.  one thing is for sure…  we can’t move anywhere humid.  just doesn’t work for us.

  • Wedding: May 2010 - Victorian Gardens of Two Sisters

Definitely not.  I live in a small town in Central California.  I dislike the people here, the lack of available goods and services, the extreme heat in the summer, the fog in the winter and the nonexistant variety of restaurants. 

 However, I have a house here for free, so we’ll live here until we can afford a home of our own.  Fiance is from Vancouver, and I love it there.  In 5-10 years I wouldn’t mind moving to Canada just outside of Vancouver; it’s so pretty.

  • Wedding: June 2010 - Tannery Pond at the Darrow School

yup, LOOOOOOOVE living in NYC for the time being! Been here almost two years, we’ll definitely be staying at least another year while FH finishes up his MBA….After that, well, I think we’ll probably go wherever he gets a good job, since I’m a teacher and can move anywhere…I would DIE to live abroad for a year or two, Boston or Chicago are my 2nd choices…As for settling down with kids, probably a suburb of Boston would be ideal but I don’t want kids for at least 5 years, got time on that one!

I would LOVE to get out of FL. But like many others, my FI’s family business is here…so we’ll more than likely stay local. He told me we could move in ten years, when we’ve saved up more money for him to open up a sector of the family business elsewhere. I don’t know if that will ever happen. In ten years we’ll have children and it will be very hard to pull them away from both sets of grandparents, aunts, and uncles. I would love to move to Colorado or back to my birth state of PA or just a few hundred miles more north where the weather is a little less temperate and where beautiful old homes are begging to be restored. Maybe when we are retired ;).

  • Wedding: September 2009

Definitely! I live in oldtown Louisville, CO which was just ranked the #1 place to live in the country by Money Magazine, and the Today Show. So I am pretty excited, except for that means I will never be able to afford to buy a place here!

Hope we can all live in our dream towns eventually!

When we first moved to Temecula, we didn’t feel like we fit in at all.  I couldn’t wait to get out of here.  Now that we’ve been here for about 9 months, I don’t think I’d leave this area.  The housing is affordable for Southern California, everything is clean and new, we live right below wine country and San Diego is just an hour away.  Another perk, is that the local community college has a branch in our city and the state college does as well (both are about 20 minutes away).

Yes, and no.

It’s been a little bit of a difficult asjustement to move from Chicago to San Diego, but so far I really like it here.  I love Chicago, and I"ll be back to visit, but I think more than the location, I miss my family!  If everyone I loved was here, I would prefer to be in California!

I love California too much to move.  My Fiance is a total SoCal boy, so I don’t imagine us moving out of this area (fine by me, hehe)!  🙂

Yes and no. I live in a tiny house on 70 acres with a couple thousand acres of state forest land in back of me. I love the woods, I love the isolation, but I HATE PA winters!
