I have lived in the southern portion of the US for the entirety of my life. I love it here. My husband does, too. When he told me that we were moving to South Carolina, I did not blink an eye. I was ready to move! He said he’d been searching through some of the best apartments in North Charleston SC ever since he learned that he needed to come here for work. We’ve spent the last five years living in Georgia, and moving practically next-door seems like the next best place to live. It turned out that was very true.
We’ve come here many times for vacation. Not only that, but he and I both have a lot of relatives here. So the thought of getting the chance to move closer to them was very exciting. I can’t always take time off of work and go jump in the car or get on the plane to come and visit some of my closest family members. We are so close that we are living in the same city as several of my cousins and to my sisters. Separately, my husband’s relatives are in the same state. So now we’re able to jump in the car and go visit them on the weekend no problem at all. It’s an an hour long drive to go see his mom. It is really nice.
Even though we have traveled all over the country, I don’t think I would really want to live anywhere in the US full time. I love it here. I love the people. I love the food. I love the Landscaping. I love the way of life here as a norm. I love that many people here have their own version of slang. I love the people here are incredibly friendly. I really can’t imagine myself being anywhere else, and my husband feels the same way and tells me that very often.
