I have been doing alot of reading about Austin lately and find it to definately be a city I would want to live in and is on my short list of 3 cities and actually the number one on the list. Who new this Jersey girl who moved to Florida would end up living in Texas but I do think this will happen in the near future.

That says a lot if you’re willing to sacrafice the beach. I have no doubt you’ll find it a great place to live. It seems everyone here has transplanted from somewhere else (many from a big state on the West coast).

You’ll be wearing boots in no time!
