Stealing an idea from True Blue Texan, where one is supposed to talk about some of the smaller blogs out there, I want to introduce you all to L and her very new blog, How Did We Get Here? I know L through graduate school. I went through the same program she did, only she did it later than I did. I think perhaps her class visited my site where I worked at the time her class was going through the program, so to get wonderfully fun world experience, or some such, or maybe not. The ol' brain just can't remember these things anymore. At the very least, I have seen her at the alumni gatherings and we have served on our alumni board at the same time.
L has just moved to the city of my birth, Des Moines, Iowa. She and her significant other, K, are both fairly new to the city and they started the blog to share what they do in Des Moines, Iowa with their family and friends.
I remember the Des Moines of my youth, some of it brought back to me in the book, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson, also a native Iowan. But Des Moines has grown up. Look at all the fun things a cute 20-something (I think they are) couple can do in Des Moines, Iowa. And it makes me also long for my home state. I do miss it at times. So she has provided me some first class entertainment and some ideas for what I can do with my family if we finally get the chance to move back to the great state of Iowa.
Don't get me wrong, the midwestern state I currently live in is just as great as Iowa. But, somehow, I think I will always have a soft spot for the land of my birth.
My tiny little contribution to the blogosphere, pointing you in the direction of potentially interesting blog content. I have found in my forays that I have yet to find a blog I didn't like. My blog following list is really huge. I am going to have to cut back some. I really need to spend more time with my kids.
Oh, I'd also like to say I'm glad L joined my followers list. I was getting a little antsy about having 13 followers. I almost made a post asking for more people to follow me publicly. Whew! I feel better now.
