Read. It sounds like the move was good. I'm glad for you. You didn't sound happy in Iowa. I hope things continue to climb. Its awesome you found someone as that is no small task. Even in our rotten economy and how hard it is to find jobs, I think finding a person of worth in your life is a much bigger gold mine. And since you have that, good luck with the job hunt.
Yes, I am in Wisconsin now and happy as can be about it. Madison is a fantastic tiny city, the weather here has been great (no colder than Iowa in the winter from what I saw), I love the trees everywhere, the people are great. Good all around.
It will be interesting to see how both our moves plays into creativity.
