I am from the bible belt and apparently , the belt wasn't my size. Still shopping... My husband and I own and run "Retirement Connection" (publishing a Resource Guide for Seniors). I married Lyman in August 2002, while I was living in Colorado. We have 2 great kids- Molly and Wyatt. My family and I relocated to Portland Oregon. We are often asked "Why Portland", the answer- Lyman and I made a list each of where we wanted to live. Portland had the most in common of our 2 lists... mountains for him, water for me, hearing resources for our daughter, liberal hippy friendly city "keep portland weird", small town feel in a big city, walk to coffee shops and stores, micro brews, great wine, and in general- WE FIT HERE!
