I am a Midwest girl.
I was born and raised in Illinois and seeing flat and slightly rolling lands is the norm. Acres upon acres of fields, barns old and new and a corn fed deer running across the road is what I am used to. Not being able to travel much growing up due to tough financial times, I haven’t seen much of the USA. I went to Michigan as a child, even into Canada, but being 3 years old certainly doesn’t allow for much memory of the event. We had gone to St. Louis a few times to visit Six Flags and the Meramec Caverns. That was about the extent of my traveling.
