Indiana. It’s a state that means a lot to me. I was born in Muncie, raised in Huntington, spent most of the 90’s living and working in Fort Wayne, during my youth…spent a lot of time in Marion and Wabash. After being away for many years, I returned a few years ago and it still is special to me.
A FEW things I enjoy about Indiana:
I think (because with politics, it can be hot & cold) we have a decent Governor in Mike Pence. I can’t say many nice things about some of the other bigger political names, so I won’t say anything.
Indianapolis as a whole…the people, the great buildings, downtown, the growth.
A few famous Hoosiers: David Letterman, Axl Rose, John Mellencamp, David Lee Roth, Michael and the Jacksons, James Dean…none of them just mediocre, but huge in their impact.
Indiana is perfect for families.
