I’ve spent most of my life living in the Midwest. I call soda “pop”, sneakers “tennis shoes”, and, to me “party stores” aren’t places you buy balloons and streamers. Most recently, I lived on the East Coast for several years for grad school. I missed the friendliness of Midwesterners, my friends, my family, and Portillo’s Italian Beefs. But, DC was a good place to go to school. I was there for President Obama’s inauguration. I got to attend Supreme Court oral arguments. I met R.
Now, I’m living in Los Angeles, a city I never expected to be in. Sometimes I still miss home, but most of the time I’m loving it. I love cooking, trying new restaurants, watching movies, and exploring my new city. I also love that I get to hang out with R, the dog, and two cats every day. This is what I write about.
I’m a Midwest Girl in LA writing about life in my new city. Thanks for joining me!
