I went to college at U.T (as did a couple of other people on this list)and lived in Austin for about 7 years. It was a blast. From there we moved to Atlanta and then kept on moving. I was widowed 7 years ago and thought about moving back to Austin from northern Ohio, but, by then, I loved the 4 seasons, and skiing in the winter, and swimming in the Great Lakes in the summer months. As much as I love Austin, I knew I’d miss many other things if I chose to move back there, so, I decided to stay rooted in the Midwest.
