27. We're lucky -- we live where we want to.
I grew up in the Bay Area and loved it, went to DC for awhile, wanted to move back to the west coast -- but Cali so expensive & crowded... We wanted beaches, mountains, forests in close proximity, and a cool, liberal town -- so Portland, Ore. it was. This is a good place to raise kids, too.
