Well, it’s actually been on the map since 1851, but the TODAY Show made it a little more popular with this little honor: Wealthiest City.
I must say that Des Moines has grown on me. I’m an implant, originally from Minnesota. While there are definitely things I miss about my home state, I’m excited to live in a city that has grown so much over the years and continues to grow.
So, good job Des Moines.
Now I have to go get this shirt from a local fav store – Raygun: http://raygunsite.com/collections/girls/products/de-moine
P.S. – I wrote this post last week, when it actually aired, but obviously got distracted and forgot to post it. So this is probably old news to everyone now. Oh well.
