Midwest Love

Midwest love. Small town life suits me.I’m sending a shout out to my home–sharing my Midwest love. Missouri, specifically. No, it’s not flyover country. While some people see it as the space between the coasts, it is my beloved home, and I’m fiercely proud of it!  

I love living in a rural area, and small town life suits me well. Our values are different here, a little more Good Book oriented, but I won’t apologize for that. Most of us are content with the everyday blessings that cross our paths: A warm, fresh breeze scented with something floral. Trees blooming in shades of pink and white. A laugh shared with my spouse. A spicy, hot cup of orange pekoe. Just a few of my blessings du jour.

Days like these I feel invigorated. Glad to be alive. Happy to be here. Fortunate to be living this life on the land I love.

  1. That sounds like the perfect way to spend a day. 16 months ago we moved from the rush of London to the quiet of the Scottish Highlands and we’re loving it.
