Find Your Spot

I was reading comments on another blog the other day and someone mentioned www.FindYourSpot.com. You answer a bunch of questions about preferences {rolling hills, mountains, or beaches or I must have a grocery store in town, it would be nice, or I grow my own food, etc.} and tells you which cites best 'fit' you based on your selections.  Obviously we haven't left Iowa yet {which probably means we never will} but I can pray that we will someday!  So here were my top 25 locations... {and honestly?  I think it's pretty accurate!  Either way, it's fun to look at and dream about}  If you do this, tell me where it says you should be! :)
