    I would have to say that I love that 90% of my immediate family lives here. People take this for granted. I try not to b/c my fiance's family is all over the world.He only gets to see his mom maybe once every other year. I know this gets tough for him every holiday, so it makes me appreciate the fact that I can dee my family whenever I want.

    Definitely proximity to family, and also having all 4 seasons. Great college and pro sports teams too. Oh, and all the beautiful coastline!

    Totally agree w/ PP....I love the change of the seasons!  I also love the sports teams and the beautiful landscape and all the water we have.  I also love that most of my family is here.

    I love everything about Michigan, minus the whole unemployment rate thing. My favorite parts about Michigan is the 4 seasons. I love Fall and everything associated with it: leaves changing, sweatshirts, football, Halloween! I also love that you can drive 2 hours and feel like you are in a completely different place when you're up north!

    the 4 seasons, I never knew I much I missed them until I moved to Texas for 4 years and there were only 2 1/2 rain, winter, summer. I also like that most of my family lives here as well as FI's family.

    I'm with pp I miss all of that stuff about Michigan!  If the job market were better I would move home in a second.  We still plan on heading back north in a couple of years.  I love all of the seasons and everything there is to do!

    I miss Michigan drivers!  I know it sounds weird, but Houston has the worst drivers ever!  They all drive slow in the fast lane and don't believe in looking in their blind spot.  I also miss leaves changing, cider mill and wearing a long sleeve shirt.  Stupid Houston! :(

    I really like Fall in Michigan. Like pp said, I like that you can drive 5+ hours and still be in MI. I love the history of Detroit. There's so much that a lot of people don't know or get to see. I've riden in the Tour de Troit for 3 yrs. It's great to ride your bike all over the city of Detroit to see historic areas and landmarks w/ a police escort, of course!

    My family and the fact that there are four seasons (some years). Honestly my family is what makes me want to stay here because other states have four seasons and jobs.

    Ditto for Fall colors, especially in the UP. Only thing keeping us here is family otherwise we would move out of state. Job market needs to recover ASAP.

    When I lived there, going to the U-M was the best thing about it.Now that I just visit, it's my family and an empty campus in the summer. :)

    Now that i'm living in Houston, I would ditto Katiebird and say I miss the drivers in Michigan, because truly the drivers in houston are RETARDED.  I also miss the 4 seasons, although I would flip flop 2 months of winter for 2 extra months of summer.  Being closer to family, and definitely Michigan sports, both pro and college.  The houston have probably a tenth of the enthusiasm as we do in Detroit, although the college sports are nice.
