I realized one day that the new people share my love for Austin or they wouldn&#39;t be here. I&#39;m so excited to see things like improvements to the Town Lake trail and I know that it wouldn&#39;t be possible without the tax money and support of the new people. <br /><br />@sallie~ Oh, I agree with you. I think we all need to do the best we can with what we can afford. <br /><br />And I don&#39;t think all of the cool stuff is downtown! For example, a lot of people would think the art, food, and coffee scenes are the cool things and they&#39;d probably do better east instead of west. For others, the beautiful hill country is the cool part so east wouldn&#39;t be the best fit.Kasey at Thrifty Little Bloghttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11112656345319920659noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5438518576931140312.post-78762212241153462502012-08-17T13:55:54.431-05:002012-08-17T13:55:54.431-05:00i&#39;ve lived in austin for 6 years and agree wit...i&#39;ve lived in austin for 6 years and agree with most of your points! ...except the part about live close to work and live close to the cool stuff. my office is in westlake and i don&#39;t make the $$ to afford living near there. i live southeast, though, and i don&#39;t have to get on 35 or mopac so my drive isn&#39;t too bad. and i&#39;d love to live more central near the cool spots, but again, it&#39;s much more expensive to live close in. one day maybe!salliehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/01122784534869324660noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5438518576931140312.post-88945128933986622362012-08-17T12:21:32.048-05:002012-08-17T12:21:32.048-05:00Spot on!

I am guilty of having to fight the urge of thinking &quot;please stop moving here and listing ATX on every Best of list&quot; . Mostly due to the traffic and the increased cost of living but I have met some wonderful people from all over the world and California of course;)jess@hillcountryhomebody.blogspot.comhttp://www.hillcountryhomebody.blogspot.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5438518576931140312.post-24737631891846693962012-08-17T10:58:22.773-05:002012-08-17T10:58:22.773-05:00I love this post!

I was born at Seton Hospital. :) I&#39;m actually very far NW austin in the suburbs. Because I grew up in the suburbs and I still live in the suburbs I feel like I still don&#39;t really know Austin and all the stuff to do here. I spend most weekends moping around saying how boring it is to live here. I obviously need to get out more!Allison @ House of Hepworthshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02408425812774322115noreply@blogger.com
