Urban Living

If I had the money to live anywhere it would be Manhattan, probably Tribeca, I just loved that neighborhood. A brownstone in Lincoln Park Chicago, or Back Bay Boston would be close seconds. Then a not too distant third would be a Victorian house in San Francisco. A distant fourth would be a double-gallery style house in New Orleans. A very distant but still desirable fifth would be a contemporary house in Silver Lake, Los Angeles.

Non-urban/Rural

Somewhere on coastal Maine with a lighthouse view and huge windows with plenty of unused land surrounding me. A lake house on Lake Michigan with the dunes as a backyard. A mountain home in western Montana near Yellowstone N.P. A ranch house near the wine country around Napa, California. A small little house in the heart of an artsy mountain town; Flagstaff, AZ Taos, NM Bisbee, AZ Telluride, CO Burlington, VT Sun Valley, ID...

I'd live in Las Vegas from November through April and head to Portland, OR from May through October.

I've lived in 3 places and have loved all of them - Los Angeles (as a kid/teen), Seattle (entire adulthood until last year), and now Austin.

We're currently working on purchasing land in Grand Traverse or Leelanau County, MI. That's where I'd ultimately like to retire.

Jekyll Island, Ga. It's quiet, not very commercialized, and on the water. It's just a dream, however- I'd never be able to afford it.
