Hasn't the whole "native" thing gone by the wayside? Seems to have lost its panache. Interesting how it only seemed to matter in places with large net in-migration. Wouldn't be surprised to find out that nobody's ever claimed that personalized plate in Pennsylvania.

In August we will have been here 30 years. We didn't know it, but we arrived here during a recession. DH managed to find a job anyway, so did I. DH was laid off twice. We even moved away for about 9 months at one point, but had a chance to come back (in another recession), and we did. We had two kids here (both now grown), bought two houses, sold one. When my brother was out here in May he said he could see we had made a good life for ourselves here. That's quite a compliment coming from him.

Terri, at least you have family going with you. My wife and I are doing it alone, but family is already excited to visit this summer and winter to a place they would otherwise have not gone to. They way I see it, it always takes at least one person to branch out. I have cousins in Houston only because my Uncle and Aunt moved there about 15 years ago. My mother is there now only because she met my stepfather there because she was visiting my Uncle and Aunt. If i go farther back I've got heritage going back to Mexico/Italy.

I like your way of thinking...it takes at least one person to branch out... Best of luck to you and your wife...I hope you enjoy the mountains for me until I can get there...

I've been here 5 years (from OH) and I am ready to move on. The BF has been relocated by his work to ABQ and I, having been already spoiled by the nice CoS winters, am ready for a shorter and milder winter. Colorado is awesome, though, and if I had lived elsewhere in the state, the move may have been difficult.

OP had me convinced Livermore was where she was headed, having started multiple threads about it last year.

What happened?

Had to wait for our Grandbaby to be born and so we stayed so that my daughter could keep the same OB...then we made our journey to Livermore in August of '09 to check it all out...absolutely loved it...as I knew we would...looked at several places while we were there...the one we loved was just not much room for what they were asking for it....so we have come back here and are still in search of something nice, but reasonable...like I have said...I won't be selling this house until I find something that is a sure thing...and I cannot really afford two mortgages...but yes, it's Livermore all the way when I get everything ironed out...
