I have lived in Kansas my whole life (minus the 6 weeks in London) and there are times when I feel so sheltered from the rest of the world and that I'm missing out on the action taking place in New York, LA, etc. But when Fall comes (especially) I am reminded of the beauty of the Midwest and that being sheltered might not be such a bad thing. I love driving a mile in one direction and being in the country, surrounded by corn fields, wheat fields and yes, even cows. I love that you can walk around Kansas City and see a mixture of designer handbags and cowboy boots. :) I love that the beef in my freezer comes from my grandparents farm and not a grocery store. I love that we have farmers markets within walking distance. And I love that my kids will grow up in this environment, loving and respecting all of God's creations and experiencing them first hand...
And I love the fact that I may be a city girl on the outside but a country girl at heart.
