We rolled off the “plains” into “Mellinium  Midwest”- better known as West Des Moines Iowa.   Lots to learn about “urban renewal” with a “hipster” vibe!   Went to the weekly farmer’s market in downtown, and was surprised by how big it was, how busy it was and how old we felt.  There is definitely a revitalization happening there-lots of craft breweries, wineries, genuine midwesterners, and most importantly…the sweetest niece of all time.  Abbi was the “hostess with the mostest” sharing her vogue new pad, her air conditioning (it was HOT!) her knowledge of the area, and her spirit that kept us on our toes as we learned about her new life in Iowa.  She introduced us to her cool friends, day and night time downtown festivities, and the famous “taco in a bag”😂!  Not to mention, the most amazing grocery store/restaurant/fresh market/Bloody Mary bar brunch/public house(hundreds of local craft beers)…HYVEE!!! We were so amazed by all of the new construction happening-if you think the economy is suffering-check out the growth in West Des Moines!  This place is on fire and couldn’t be happier for Abbi to be a part of it!
