MONEY Magazine’s Top 10 Best Places To Live In America

I found this article on the Round Rock city website about MONEY magazine’s 2008 Best Place To Live In America.  Round Rock landed no. 7 on their list of America’s most livable cities. This definitely makes me feel better about our recent home purchase. Don’t get me wrong, the house is pretty much my dream home and I could stay there for a very, very long time, if not forever but lately all the news goes from bad to worse considering the economy, job loss and real estate markets and just about everything else.  It was making me nervous about the house we just closed on. As much as I LOVE the house and feel we got a terrific deal, I found myself asking Tony if we did the right thing financially.

It was nice to see a positive article about the community we hope to put down roots in.   All the media negativity, as much as I try to put it in perspective, can leave you with a sinking feeling. I am thankful that Tony’s job is very secure. We are very blessed. Now I just need to convince all my friends and family to move here as well!

Here is the complete list.

    I just know you are going to be so happy in Austin. It takes time to really feel home and to make new friends but it will happen. Have fun moving tomorrow :)

    Dee-you always say what I need to hear. Thank you. We did meet a few neighbors last night and everyone was very welcoming. It will be nice to be part of a community again. Apartments are strange that way. There are so many people but it is still so impersonal. Matthew ran laps around that yard and the house. He is giddy about all the space to play and explore.
