    Is there something or someone you'd LOVE to live closer to? The beach! I liveback in my hometown now but I lived at the beach for almost ten years and i miss it so much. I was a couple miles from the beach and the air had that salty smell, and I used to jog down too the beach. I also wish we were a little closer to town. Everything [grocery store, target, mall...] is about half an hour away, and that gets kinda old sometimes. BUT I love nature and I don't love neighbors, so it's a fair trade i guess

  • How close do you live to:

    Your parents: 45 min

    Your in-laws: 1 hour

    Siblings: varies, 40 min - 2 hours (there are 6 all together on both sides)

    Best friend: varies, 30 min - 5 hours (counting 4 good friends)

    A zoo: 22 min (down to a science)

    Amusement park: no idea, I guess the closest is Sesame Place? 30 min. 

    The beach: 1.5 hours

     

    Is there something or someone you'd LOVE to live closer to? Mostly I'd like to live closer to my parents & sisters. Sure, it's not that far, but I grew up literally next door and it was a wonderful way to grow up. I wish I could see them for a quick trip to Target or the park or whatever, at 45 minutes it's always a planned production.

    My sister. She SAH too, and it would be so fun if we both lived in the same place. She used to live where I do, but her husband went back to school, so they moved. I didn't have kids when she lived here, as I was in college. She had her first child back then, and I would spend so much time at their house. It was so fun!

    Siblings: 16 hours by car

    Best friend: 10 hours by car

    A zoo: 15 minutes to the small local zoo but the kids don't really like that one, they like the small family owned one about 25 minutes away.

    Amusement park: I think the closest one is 40 minutes away.

    The beach: Probably about 40 minutes away also.

     

    I would LOVE to live closer to my family.  I hate that my kids won't have the same experience I had growing up of having my entire family within an hour of where we lived.  I see my nephew having a super close relationship with all his grandparents and my kids barely knowing any of them and it bothers me. 

    I would also love to live closer to more fun things for young kids.  It has been really rough going from being near Orlando to what seems like the middle of no where sometimes.
