Hello! Welcome to Homegrown Iowa Girl! This blog marks the start of a big adventure for me, and I hope you come along for the ride! I am excited to share with you the adventures and fun my family and I find in our corner of Northwest Iowa. Small town, rural Iowa has so much to offer. I personally think it is overlooked and under appreciated, so my goal is to highlight the amazing and out of the box ways to have fun in this beautiful state. I hope to inspire you to make every day an adventure!
Our adventures will be both big and small. They will be amazing at times, and ordinary at others. They will be in our backyard, in local parks, and in other fun places. Some adventures will require planning, and others will not. Some will be within walking distance of our home, and others will require a little time in the car. But whatever we do, I know it will be an adventure! With young children in tow I know we will have tears, fits, and those not so fun things, (I need to remember to pack plenty of snacks!) but we will also have laughter and fun. No matter what, we will be making memories and learning about the place we call home.
I am so excited for summer to be here. My list is growing with ideas for Girls Adventures, Small Town Iowa Fun, and Date Nights. I’m ready to cross things off and share those adventures with you. Get your list ready, as I’m sure you’ll find a few more things to add as you follow our fun!
