I’m actually getting ready to move to San Jose, California and I am SO excited! I visited for the first time a few weeks ago and fell head-over-heels in love. I can’t wait to trade grey New York winters for sun and palm trees 🙂

I’m also impressed/excited with how laid-back people are in Northern California and also how health conscious people are. I recently read an article that named San Jose the healthiest city in the US – since healthy living is very important to me, I’m thrilled to be moving to an area where a majority of residents are also health-focused.

San Diego, Florida, Texas…Kentucky or Tennessee.

That’s probably about it. I would need a good reason to live that far away from family though.

If I had to stay in the US, I’d move to either Denver, Seattle, or Austin.

If I could live anywhere in the world, I’d move to Sydney.

I’d move to Hilo, Hawaii.  My mom is from there and she moved to Indiana when she was fresh out of high school.  A lot of her family members are still there and I would love to live near them for a while.

I would live on Captiva Island, Florida. It’s the most amazing place in the states. So relaxing!


I would never want to go any more north than I am now. I hate cold weather. Although I think I would really like Seattle. I love rain.

I would move to NYC for a year.  I’ve lived in suburbia for most of my life, so if I’m going to spend a year somewhere I want it to be very different from where I live now.  FI and I visited some friends in NYC last year and had a blast.  There’s so much to do and experience and I think it would be a fun change of pace for me.  I don’t see myself living there for any longer than a year though – I like my big, inexpensive house with a big green yard 🙂

Hmmmmm. Tough choice, as we really like where we live now. If we could have a job/same lifestyle (well, I’d want a better one, haha), probably Carlsbad, CA, just because my fiance loved it there (but I’ve never been). Maybe Colorado or San Francisco? Not sure. Places I’ve actually visited I’d never move to.

Places I’d NEVER live:
– North Carolina (gross water)
– West Virginia
– Ohio
– any big city
– out to the country where I had to drive more than 10 minutes to get to Target/the grocery store/etc.

Darling Husband and I are relocating to the Ft. Lauderdale area in Florida this summer and I’m pretty excited about it 🙂 I don’t know a soul down there, but sometimes it’s good to shake things up.

I would likely not want to move to many other Midwestern states outside of MN. I love it up here, but I’ve seen most of the Midwest and it just isn’t the same. I’d also stay out of major metropolitan areas as a whole…I like the suburbs.

Darling Husband is interviewing for a job in Seattle, so there’s a chance we might be moving there. The more I read about it the more excited I am for the possibility. I would also consider moving to the Washington DC area, simply because I am a political buff and would love to be around there.

I would love to live in Berkeley Ca, Manhattan NYC, Big Island HI (I used to live there), Boulder CO.  I have an itching bug to move really badly!

ETA:  I would not want to live anywhere in the south or true/ southern midwest (I live in Great Lakes Region midwest and that’s okay-)  No red state really!

Just for a year, I’d love to live in NYC… there’s just something so iconic and cool about spending a year in NYC when you’re young. I’d never want it long term though.

If I had to stay in the U.S., I’d choose Asheville, NC, or San Franciso, CA. Maybe Portland, OR.

If I had to choose off that list, I’d choose Boulder. It’s such a cute city.
