We’re looking at moving to Dallas or Atlanta or DC in the next few years.  Our only requirement is that the city have a major international airport with direct flights back to my hometown so I can visit my family annually and they can visit us.

Make sure you research the state income taxes for where you plan to move because we get spoiled with zero state taxes down here in Florida.  My uncle got a raise to move to Nebraska but once he paid the state income tax for the year, his raise really wasn’t worth it (plus he did not like the freezing cold temps after being used to sunny Florida.)

I grew up in Minneapolis, went away to college, and ended up moving to Dallas after graduation. I am so glad I did. There were definitely a lot of challenges at first but it was a great decision overall for me–plus, I met DH here!

My parents live about 1000 miles away and I think we get along great with some distance between us. DH’s parents live in the same city as us, so we will have some support and help from them when we have kids. We see his parents about once every other week and see mine maybe 4 times a year.
