{Untitled Post

I have sat for several minutes trying to think of what to call this post.  Nothing comes.  There are so many mixed emotions swirling around in my head right now and I feel like I just need to get them down. 6 years ago we left our hometown, the place we grew up, to move to the Midwest.  A place we had never even heard of before, it was the unknown. 
We are in a similar place again, but now we are leaving another place that we love, that we call home.  Every time someone asks me about the move, they say it is going to be easy because we don't have any family here. 'Technically' we don't have family here, but we have our Iowa family and that is not going to be easy to leave.
 Now I find myself doing something harder than the unknown, I know exactly what this is going to feel like.  And I don't like it.  I am excited for the new opportunities, for Craig's job, and the success that he will feel professionally.  But I am still numb to the sadness that I have for all that we have here.  I don't want this to be a 'downer' post, but I just want to remember:
 This family loves Iowa.
We love the corn.
We love the cold.
We love the yummy ice cream.
We love our Harrison Hawks & our Wood Vikings.
We love the backyard rabbits and squirrels.
We love our church family.
We love the thunderstorms.
We love our Pumas and our Strikers.
We love the walking tacos and the pickle rolls.
I love my creative community.
We love the humidity.
We love our neighbors.
We love our Midwest traditions.

Is there anything I missed? What do you love about living in Iowa or the Midwest? Please share!
I am sure we will add to this list over the next few weeks as we finish up our moving adventure.....
