My wife and I left Iowa some 20 years ago to see the world. We lived in France, Japan and the UK before returning to America last December. We settled our family in Ahwatukee so our children could be closer to their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Americans are more confident in the U.S. economy than at any point in the past five years, thanks to surging home values, a brighter job market and record-setting stock prices. Stock averages last month extended the year’s explosive rally. Further gains in consumer confidence could help the economy withstand the effects of higher taxes and federal spending cuts that kicked in this year.
