I have lived at the NJ shore my whole life. I have spent long periods of time "living" elsewhere; I once lived in Rome, Italy for 6 months for example. And there are many places I would consider living once my kids are all grown; NYC, India, Costa Rica, Italy, are all on the list for different reasons. But I do love where we are now. We live ten minutes from the beach on the bay in a quiet little town no one could find unless they were lost and wandering..that is how we found it. I love the people, the school I teach in is 5 minutes away, and it is just an all- round happy place to be. If we chose to stay here rather than travel or outright move to any of the above places, I would be ok.
