Cross posting, forgive me

Wow @ebn78…thanks for posting that thread link.
It's funny…I'm from NC, my husband from IL, which we now live, which he told the first night we met, in NC, that he was moving back to Chicago as soon as he could…I followed him to a couple states and we made it back to IL in 2005. Fast forward to 2015, we've been in our home we built since 2007, two kids later, we've decided it's best for the 4 of us to get out of the Midwest. Yes, Chicago is awesome, so much "culture," things to see, awesome schools, awesome summers, sucky winters. It breaks my heart when my 5yo looks out the back patio door asking when it's going to stop snowing. Yes, we do what we need to do when it's freaking freezing outside and miserable, but we can only take so much. It's affecting our attitudes, our way of life. We love the sun, we love the heat, we love the water. And yes, we want a nice neighborhood, awesome schools, and nice weather, to be able to enjoy the outside most of the year, bugs, humidity, heat, and all. We'll take it. We want to be and stay where we will be for the rest of our lives. Instead of waiting til we're 65, we want to move, NOW. Thankfully, we're just waiting on a job opening for my husband, we're not in a hurry, but we're ready to go when the opportunity shows itself. I get SO excited when I think about moving to FL, we just got back this past weekend from roadtrippin' up and down A1A, from Jupiter to Miami. We think we know where we want to be.
Reading posts like yours make me laugh. You come off very negative about those of us who would like to/or have moved to FL. Maybe you should use all this negative energy some where else? Have you traveled anywhere outside of FL? I can assure you, if/when we move to FL, you will not have to worry about us causing such a ruckus as you have described. Thank you for allowing us to visit and possibly live in YOUR state

Too funny...

I was born in Broward General, so I too, am a true Floridian.
I left there in '86 - in my mid 20's...
I've been back to visit, but it's nothing like it was when I left.
I guess it's true - you can't really ever go back - as it's not what it once was.

R.I.P. to my home town...

I feel the same way about Brooklyn NY. What was will never be again.
