“Our only son lives in northern California and has a great career and home there. We live on the east coast (of the US) and are now retired.
We miss him terribly and would love to live closer to him, but the cost of living there is sky-high. We have pensions and a 401k and could probably swing it, but will not be able to live as comfortably.
But then, there’s the beautiful California weather! It is a big move: farther away from other friends and family, different culture, higher expenses. But, I still feel like I want to be there… will I be sorry? Appreciate any thoughts!” -Anonymous
