I think it would be great to know more Midwestern Moms here on Twitter Moms. So, if you're writing from farm country (like I am) or the Big city (Chicago, anyone?), from places that grow corn to wheat to soybeans to towns right along the Mississippi, introduce yourself.
And while you're at it, tell us what you love about being a Midwest Twitter Mom.
Hi there! I'm Traci and live in Missouri (born and raised). I live about 1+ SW of St Louis. I love being a Midwest mom, but often don't find too many others online near me. Not sure why that is; must not be lookin' in the right place. LOL
Hi! We moved to Stillwater, MN from Maryland in 1992, then to Hudson, WI in 2004. We recently moved to the Madison, WI area. Love the Midwest, our children were all born mud ducks - lol. We still have strong ties to the Coast...miss family, friends, the beach and seafood, but I will bloom where I'm planted.
Hi - I'm Jessica and I've lived nearly all my 27 years in Rochester, MN. While I'm not a huge fan of the long winters, I do enjoy the distinct change of seasons. Rochester is a nice city to live and it's close enough to the twin cities and the big city feel.
Hello all Midwest Moms - I'm from Kerkhoven, MN (about 2 1/2 hrs west of the Cities on Hwy 12 - by Willmar). I am so waiting for spring to come this winter has been so long - todays pretty nice. Only in the Midwest would you say that 30+ degrees is "nice".
Take care and I hope tonights predicted snow fall misses you!
I'm a Midwest mom located in southern Michigan (think almost Indiana). While I'm not thrilled with my rural location I do love feeling like I can be part of a community. I also love the changing of the seasons. The way the leaves change in the fall is one of the many small pleasures I get from living here.
