Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day is "bicoastal," an adjective that relates to living or working on both the east and west coasts of the United States. Here's the example sentence:
Richard and Laura had become a bicoastal couple, often shuttling between their primary home in New York and their vacation ranch in San Diego.

I imagine that Richard and Laura lead lives of opulence. The high cost of New York and California living is no match for them. Richard graduated third in his class from Harvard Business School and is now an executive at Deloitte. Laura graduated with honors from Stanford Law, and works as a consultant for various digital design firms in New York. They met on a double date with mutual friends and lived together for six years before Richard popped the question. He bought her a 2.5-carat diamond ring from Tiffany and proposed during a luxurious vacation in the Cayman Islands. They've been married for seven years and thought about having children once, around Year Five.

Richard plays basketball twice a week with his HBS buddies, but his right knee is giving him problems. Laura makes him take daily vitamins and natural supplements. She encouraged him to buy the ranch, as an investment in his health. They've picked up golf and play together when they're in San Diego. After golf, Laura makes green smoothies, and they answer work email. They go for a walk on the beach in the evening, and sip mai tais at dinner. Laura recently registered for a bread-making class.

Thing I'm thankful for: conversations with Todd
