Congratulations to us!
Irvine has recently been named the 2019 Happiest City in California and the second Happiest City in the USA by the personal finance website WalletHub!
According to their report, WalletHub “drew upon the various findings of positive-psychology research in order to determine which among more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities is home to the happiest people in America. We examined each city based on 31 key indicators of happiness, ranging from depression rate to income-growth rate to average leisure time spent per day.”
The factors examined included depression rates, sleep rates, income growth, sports participation, and separation and divorce rates.
Married couples in Irvine will be happy to know that Irvine has the second lowest separation and divorce rate in the nation!

Does Irvine have problems?
Of course, we do!
But just for today, let’s remind ourselves that, for the most part, we really love living here!
