Amongst the pictures of Sophia's 3rd birthday party, the last greenshow we ever attended in Cedar, and some of our first weeks here in Michigan were these pictures of our drive here.
Until we moved here, I'd never been on a road trip quite that long before. And definitely not in the Midwest. In fact, I don't think I'd ever actually seen the Midwest before, aside from the summer I lived in Nauvoo, Illinois. And let me tell you, there's something enchanting about this area of the country. I fell instantly in love last summer as we drove through cornfields and wheat fields and all manner of farmland.
I'm not even sure anymore which state these pictures were taken in. From the dates, it's either Nebraska, Iowa, or Minnesota. I'm pretty sure the windmills are in Iowa. No real idea about any of the others.
All I know is that this city girl has fallen in love with the country.
(But I'm still happy to live in the "city"--small as it is.)
