Or do you in any way miss what you had?

Also can you identify your former home state?

I miss a few of the old haunts at certain times of the year, and a few of my friends and family. Likewise if I were to move from here, it would be the same. South Jersey.

I miss the seasons sometimes, the views of the mountains, the foggy mornings of New England while getting coffee and doughnuts, the songbirds, that time at evening when the sun is a certain so and you can sit outside or work in the garden. Come Sept when its still over 100 here in SWFL I miss the pumpkins and leaves and apple festivals. Come winter I miss the snow sometimes and the spring of everything coming to life. I'm indifferent mostly to here. If given the opportunity I'd move back up north, as long as it wasnt a paycut or back t a remote region of New Hampshire but I suppose if my husband continued to make the money he does now (we are opposite his line or work pays almost double down here what it does up north) then we have no choice but to stay

Moved down to FL 12 years ago from Philly.

I'm generally glad I did.
Everything isn't perfect in FL tho, let's get that straight.
However, there are times when im at the beach in December....or walking in a beautiful park in January and it's sunny and 79 degrees that im totally glad I did.

However, thereare times (usually in the summer) I miss up north. I like northern Summer. There's a vibe or an energy about them up north. The days seem longer, the lightning bugs, the loud crickets chirping at night, the smell of the trees is even different. The color of the sun is different, I dont know how to describe it but I love northern summers.

Otherwise, I like FL for the most part.

Move here almost 3 years ago and also wish I had moved years earlier.

But had aging parents on both sides to take care of so it worked out perfectly for us by staying and taking care of our parents on both sides. Would not have traded that for the move.

Now that we are here, really enjoying so many things Florida has to offer us.

Dont miss the snow, cold, ice etc. Had to go back to a family illness in November and about froze to death. Could not wait to get back to Fla!

I suppose it all depends where you move from "up north". We moved down to Florida in 2001 and back to New Hampshire in 2011. It was a lot of fun for the first 2 or 3 years. Having the warmer weather year round and being able to do the same activities whenever you want seemed to take that "special" feeling out of doing certain activities for us. We seem to do a lot better with the different seasons up here with different activities for each season. It seems to keep us a lot more active. After the long winter we just got thru we get to enjoy spring, summer and fall.

We moved to Florida from Ohio last June, and wish we had done so years earlier. I love being so near the beach, having green trees year-round, and of course the warm winter weather. What I miss the most are the variety of songbirds we had in Ohio, and the hummingbirds. I thought there would be a lot more birds in Florida, but at least in our area this is not the case. Otherwise, I love it here and would NEVER return to Ohio !
