We have no intention to TRY to move back near family and our friends are scattered accross the country.  I guess I don’t understand why you have to “take the plunge” and do so.  If you’re happy where you are and with your jobs and such, why leave?

Obviously being closer to family has perks (especially when you have kids) but I’d never just up and leave somewhere I was happy, a good job (especially in this economy – they’re hard to come by), etc JUST to move back near family.  People can always travel back and forth to see one another (I’ve done it for years).

Now, if a job opportunity arose that would have me move back, that would be a definite plus to taking the job though.

We were living away from both of our families and knew we’d want to move back.  So, we started casually looking for new jobs in either location (TN for my family, NC for his).  We decided if/when we got a new job, that’s when/where we moved.  DH got a job in NC, and by the time he was ready to transfer, I had found one as well.

We made the decision to do it sooner rather than later because we want to have kids soon.  We wanted to be able to get settled and hopefully have a house before that time came.  And, we couldn’t imagine having kids away from our families.

We’re actually in the opposite situation.  We live near all of our friends and family, but we’re anxious to move about three hours away to Chattanooga.  It’s still a good six years off, but I’m still really excited and looking forward to living there.
