Location, Location, Location...

I consider myself a Texas girl.  I was born there, which is a good start for any Texas girl.  But I also really want to live in Austin someday.  Close enough to my parents farm to see them and be there if they need me.  Close enough to go down for holidays and vacations (or drop the kids off for a few days).  And still in the heart of all things Austin - music, culture, technology.  Honestly, I just can't imagine anywhere better suited.

But I took this test at Find Your Spot.  This website bills itself as the Internet's greatest resource for relocation information and services. Take their online quiz ,and they'll instantly give you a tailored list of America's best places to live that expertly fits your personal style and needs. 

I was mildly shocked when the first 2 pages of results were Oregon - (that's 12 locations specifically picked out for me based on my living preferences!).  My top three locations:

1. Portland, OR
2. Eugene, OR
3. Milwaukie, OR

And Austin? Well, it didn't even make the list at all. In fact, not a single Texas city made the list.
This Texas girl doesn't even know what to say.

Where is your ideal city?

Seriously.. Thoughts?

  1. If I had to choose my City I would choose my home town of Yuma, Az. I love it there. Yeah sure it is hot in the summer, and the traffic in the winter is terrible, but it is home. Two hours from Phoenix, two hours from San Deigo. Most of my family lives there already, so that makes it my prime choice.
