Hi, John! I'm originally from South Carolina. Lived there for 30 years before I moved to NJ. I worked in various places throughout northern NJ and over in Manhattan over the 10 years I lived up there.
Eventually I decided I wanted a less stressful lifestyle and was able to convince my husband (the Jersey City native) that moving back down south might be a good idea.
So, about six years ago we relocated to a semi-rural area about forty-five minutes away from Raleigh, NC.
My husband told me he figured within six weeks he'd either be running screaming for the exit or he'd be kicking himself for not having made the move sooner.
weeks, he was kicking himself.
