About A Hopeful Midwesterner

Midwesterners are known for being perpetually hopeful, truthful, honest & full of those “Midwestern common-sensibilities”.
Corn-fed; Raised right, I’ve always said.

I’m Angela: A strong Midwestern woman through & through. I’m married to my best friend, Martin, and we had a baby, August, in the summer of 2018. Then we had another one, Ida, in the spring of 2021. Together, we’re attempting to raise our kiddos, two cats (Miso & Chloe), dog (Noodles), hermit crabs and a crested gecko to be functioning members of society! We live in a typical Midwestern house, that was built in 1912, on a brick street in Champaign, Illinois.
