My Hometown: Lincoln, Nebraska


Lincoln Nebraska family

Lincoln, Nebraska

Population: 254,001

Fun Fact: Charles Lindbergh took his first flying lessons here while a student at the Nebraska Aircraft Corporation.

Our Lincoln family: Bridget, 8; Lydia, 13; Jude, 1; Vicki; Scott; Mollie, 6; Aidan, 15; Honoria, 11.

I was born and raised in Lincoln and met Scott while enrolled at the University of Nebraska. We talked about moving away but loved the friendly college-town feel along with the cultural and outdoor activities. Most homes are no more than a half-mile from at least one of the city's 125 parks. A favorite is Pioneers Park Nature Center—miles of hiking trails wind through prairie lands populated with herds of bison, elk and deer. Our eldest daughter, Lydia, turned her passion for animals into a volunteer job; she's now a ZooCrew member at the Lincoln Children's Zoo's Critter Encounter exhibit.
