It was here, or Seattle, or California (Northern), and hubs chose here. I started looking for a rental and as we got closer to summer, I looked more intently and found the one here. It is a brand new house that the owners bought as an investment property so PERFECT for me. I can get to know the area etc. Hubs is supposed to be working on his certifications for work and looking for a job but I have yet to see that happen. Eventually, when he gets his crap together, he will move here too!
