Do you live near your family and by that I mean within 30 min? I live about 3 hours away and while it does take a toll on our schedules when we both work from home fulltime and have alot of family involvement/events, the conversation of do we move to make it "Easier" has come up.  Do we stay for US or move for THEM and US?

I'm lucky enough to live close to my family. My brother is within 5 minutes and my parents 45 minutes. I would say it really depends on how in love you are with where you live. If you work from home, it would make a move easier. BUT if you have an established life with friends etc. where you currently live that would make it more difficult.

We live by family and it's a godsend. I moved into the same neighborhood I grew up in and I hesitated at first, but now I have no regrets. My parents keep good boundaries and we use them for help sparingly. It's just nice to know we have them nearby for emergencies or quick hellos.
