“Our flag honors those who have fought to protect it, and is a reminder of the sacrifice of our nation’s founders and heroes. As the ultimate icon of America’s storied history, the Stars and Stripes represents the very best of this nation.” ~ Joe Barton

….and I am back, with a whole new site! I’d like to present styledintheheartland.com. I’ve been away from blogging for several reasons, but have received lots of encouragement to start up once again. I’m pretty proud of this site and have made a few changes I think you’ll enjoy. Coming back with lots of new ideas! I’ve been working hard at crafting up new outfits and just going with what I know! Since I last blogged, I’ve moved to a new community and am refocusing again on my weight loss. As you know, I lost 60 lbs. and am working on losing more! Even as hard as I’ve been working, it’s a slow process. I don’t see myself as a “Plus Size” blogger, even though there’s nothing wrong with that. I just feel that I’m different and my style makes me stand out from others. I promise to do my best this time and stick with the blog. I hope you stick with me too! Welcome to the my new “Styled in the Heartland” website!
