People are often surprised when I tell them that I lived in New York City for 7 years, then moved across country to live in Los Angeles for 7 years, and am now sowing my seeds in Greenville, SC. What a change! Some don't understand why I would want to leave the city life, and some don't understand why I would have stayed as long as I did! I absolutely love living in the Upstate, as locals call the Greenville County area, and as much as I may miss the excitement of NYC or the glitz of Hollywood, I wouldn't change where I am for the world! Greenville, SC offers gorgeous country, mountain hiking, amazing golf courses, convenience to the ocean, smiling neighbors, friendly strangers, a growing artistic community, big industry with jobs in abundance for those that want to work, and homes that are spacious and inexpensive. I love the Upstate. It's a wonderful place to live, and fabulous place to make good friends, and the best place to raise a family. My intention is to share a little bit about the Upstate for anyone interested in finding a better place to live. I hope you enjoy!
