Originally from DC and now live in SD. Similar COL but smaller job market in SD but great weather and laid back culture. Wouldn’t move back to DC even if they pay me 20% more.

Well this is interesting but I appreciate the perspectives. Yeah I’m not sure where I want to end up. Been in DC for 3 years but I feel like I’m 25 going on 50. It would be nice to go to beach town for a few years to turn off my brain in a way before settling down.

Originally from DC, now live is SD. CA taxes are higher and job market is not as good in SD. Weather is amazing but make sure you and your beau have jobs lined up. People are different too.

Lived in both - not very different COL when everything is considered.

Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)

Expecting our first in about 6-8 weeks. Both my wife and I work at places with strong parental leave policies.

Would also have a bit of family help during the first 4-6 weeks as well. Any experienced dads think this is a bad idea?
