Had you asked me ten years ago if I ever had an inkling to move to the Midwest, the answer would have been an emphatic "No".
But then, I fell in love. With a boy who had all but signed the official papers to move himself to Madison, Wisconsin for the next five plus years.
I wasn't ready to move at first. We had been dating less than a year and I thought that moving half-way across the country was too big of a step at that point. So we did long distance.

And to be truthful, oh my goodness will I miss the cheese and beer.
