Places I Dream About Moving To

Jenn from Much to My Delight recently posted her top 8 places she'd live other than NYC and I really liked the idea so I'm borrowing it. I love where I live right now, it's where I've grown up, where I met Dave and married him, so I don't have any intentions on moving away but I do often dream about setting up a new life somewhere new every once in a while. Here's the places I daydream about moving to:

1. Tennessee

Dave and I honeymooned in Gatlinburg, TN and I fell in love with that state. It kinda helps that I'm obsessed with the notion of the South: southern food, hospitality, comfort, etc. I even talked about longing for TN on the blog, two years ago!

2. NYC

In high school, I swore as soon as I graduated I was going to pack up and move to NYC. I was obsessed with Sex and the City and I was obsessed with city life. Quite frankly, I'm sure if I did, the city would have chewed me up and spit me out. Still, it would be nice to answer the question, what is it like to live in the city? 

3. California

I visited California about 5 years ago with a friend and honestly I haven't stopped thinking about that place since. We traveled up the coastline and everywhere we went the weather was perfect and beautiful. I often dream about moving to CA in the winter. 

4. Turks and Caicos

For my 16th birthday, instead of a sweet 16 party my mom gave me the choice to go to Turks and Caicos which I chose to do. Down there, I learned how to SCUBA dive, and visited a local bar where the owners were Americans who had packed up and moved down there to live a life of rest and relaxation. I decided then and there I wanted to become a SCUBA instructor and move to the islands and live out my life down in the warm, sunny islands. Clearly, that didn't happen but it's still nice to think about where my life would be right now if I had gone in that direction. 

So where do you dream about living?


  1. California would gladly welcome you!

  2. I would totally have gone to T&C instead of doing a party!

    I can never live outside of the northeast. I would miss too much including the cadence and pace of life here!

    I could totally move to the Jersey shore though.

  3. The picture of you in the floral dress is a GREAT picture! I live in a place that many people daydream about - Sydney, Australia. So, I've got that going for me. Other places that I totally could live - Austin, Texas and various part of Switzerland and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

  4. Tennessee is really gorgeous in some places!

  5. I think we all wonder about life in the big apple!! Would be interesting to know.

  6. I REALLY miss living in the city. I love the pulse, the culture, everything at your fingertips... I think in the next 5 years, Steve and I will reevaluate and probably pack up and move back into the city.
    That flowered dress is gorgeous!
