When I talk about where we now live vs. where we spend the majority of our time when we're out and about are actually several different places. We came out here with every intention of living in the state where I found a job - Iowa. When we started researching where to live, we discovered that the area we are in is actually a border town that also includes the southeastern most point of South Dakota and the Northeastern most point of Nebraska! So while I work, we play, and I will more often than not be referring to Iowa, we actually live in South Dakota (and may even enjoy some time out in Nebraska, like we did today).
My x-chromosome-folk are tucked safetly into bed as I listen to my second Midwest thunderstorm come down amongst the beautiful, full trees that have finally bloomed to life after the lingering cold. It's warm, SO warm, with summer pretty much here in a sense that I'm used to - apparently, it gets pretty muggy and humid here, which it is not yet. But the days are long and warm, the trees are beautiful, the grass green and growing without much help from umpteenth gallons of sprinkler water. It is so different here than in California!
