Welcome to our forum.
Small world, I lived in Michigan for many-a-year and moved to New Mexico several years ago. I've also been in a poly relationship for 6-7 years, but I consider us all to be newbies in some way or another.
There's a wealth of edifying material on this site, so read much and post any thoughts or questions you may have. You'll find that many people relate to your situation.
Glad you could join us.
