Growing up in Minnesota, just a hop, skip and a jump from the Iowa border, I know all the jokes about Iowans. And then, I decided to go to college in Iowa and then I decided to stay in Iowa. I’ve lived in Iowa since September of 1996. And I love Iowa (except during election season).
The people are friendly. The people are helpful. Where I live, we have access to great bookstores, a movie theatre, excellent coffee and wine. It’s everything I never dreamed I would enjoy. I thought I would be a Minnesota country girl forever. But I fell in love with Iowa and I’m thankful, most of the time, I decided to make my home here.
Thank you, Iowa, for being so much like Minnesota, but with easier access (without the larger metro areas) to the things I love.

I was inspired by this week's Scenic Sunday at @2ndRunReviews. #BeInspired today. http://ctt.ec/35ihw+
Scenic Sundays was inspired by the last couple of minutes on CBS Sunday Morning and was created in part to help encourage me to share more of my photography.
