Greenville, South Carolina and Southern North Carolina
Been to visit this area a few times. The first time we visited with an intent to check out the area for a potential place to relocate to was way back in 2011 (Can’t believe it’s been that long!) We have friends in both Asheville, NC and Greer, SC, so we have seen both places and just about everything in between. LOVE Asheville for the creative energy and free spirits!! We “Radicals” would fit right in, heehee. And the surrounding areas of the Blue Ridge mountain range is so beautiful. But we also really appreciate how lax the homeschooling laws are in South Carolina.
We. most recently, returned to the Carolinas to check out the area of Raleigh. Though the initial job prospect fell through (just another message from the universe that has provided some clarity) we saw enough to know that we will definitely consider that area, as well. An added bonus: a whole slew of unschooled teens just waiting for us! And I have made a couple really great online connections already. In another time, perhaps?
CHAPEL HILL was great! Reminds us of all the wonderful things we love about Asheville . . .
With all of our family being mostly in California, we’ve been back to visit many many times in the last 12 years but it wasn’t until recently that we even considered going back. All the reasons we left in the first place are still there (high cost of living, too many people, traffic, smog, earthquakes, etc.) but in the recent years (being here for so long without the socialization we crave) I’ve come to realize how much we miss our family. On those days when the kids are feeling isolated and down, it’d be so nice for them to have a day with their cousins. A day at the beach with my favorite (and only, heehee) brother the kids’ favorite uncle. And an evening at my dad’s is always a welcome respite, to be loved and supported; to just be with people who get us! AND let’s not forget the warm weather and access to the beach! Plus Liv loves all the cool shopping options. haha
So IF we were ever to add CA back to our list . . .
Anyone else starting to see a pattern here?
AND last but not least . . .
Though it has been a few years since our last visit, there still remains one place we have been to that we feel more connected to than anywhere else.
The island of Maui
Eenie meenie miney mo . . .
Where will we go?
Next up on our traveling itinerary: PUERTO RICO. Could it be?
STAY TUNED . . . .
