Good for you. It's never worth it to stay somewhere you hate. Out of the places you're thinking of, I would recommend Austin (and if you want suburbs of Austin, Round Rock) and possibly South Carolina depending on which area.

Austin and Tucson are nice (in fact I might be moving to Tucson) but Tennessee would seem warm compared to the Northeast. Tennessee gets 4 seasons but the winters are a lot more bearable than the Northeast.

Did I miss where Verboston said anything about hating the NE?

VerBoston said he/she is looking for a warmer climate and lower cost of living. It's impossible to find both of those in New England (lower cost of living, maybe in some areas. warm climate, forget it).

Thanks everyone! My husband could stay within Liberty Mutual but our only options in the IT field are Seattle,WA and Portland Oregon.

I need the sun and warmth! New Mexico seems really nice for climate but there are too few jobs as far as I can see. Hmmm I just spoke to my parents about moving and I am so relieved to have told them. This isn't the first time we've hinted at moving in the future but now we have a 2 year old daughter. We do have to sell our house but we may rent it out as well. We'll see. Let the adventure begin!

New Mexico is a great choice.

hollyrose, I used to think SAD was just one more "buzz word" without a lot to back it up. But the older I get, the more I know I can't ignore it anymore. I'm looking to get out of NY and move somewhere in the mid-Atlantic region. I grew up in Colorado & agree w/ the other posters about all the warmth & sun in NM, AZ, & TX. I just want a little more green than the west and a milder winter than the northeast...a la TN or VA.

As far as missing your family; they can come to see you! Might be nice for them to get some sunshine, too!
Plus, get a web cam. They are relatively cheap now, and a great way to keep the kids from forgetting what Gramma & Grampa look like (& sound like!)

Best of luck to you.

Yeah I feel better about the move now that I talked to my parents. My husband just has to look for jobs in a month and sell our house and see what happens. We were possibly thinking the Carolinas as well. I love the ocean. I would probably miss it being in the desert but I also like the moutain landscape.
