My family and I recently took a trip to Missouri after having moved to South Carolina about six months ago.

It was nice to see family and friends.

It was also nice to have a reminder for why we moved here in the first place.

No matter where you go or what you do there will be trade-offs. When I go to the beach and see my daughter’s eyes light up, I know that I’m happy with the trade-offs we’ve made to get here.
