My family and I have become residents of Taos in order to enjoy the natural beauty, the pace of life, and above all the people.  My wife and I were married here and own a home in Taos, and we plan on living here permanently and being a part of the community, and are glad that our plans of the last few years have come to fruition so that we have the opportunity to spend our lives in Taos.  We find Taos to be the ideal place for personal and spiritual growth and a life of happiness and fulfillment.
