“I love our life here up in northwest Iowa,” Leah says. “Your overall stress levels are so much lower. The pace of life is not so hectic and crazy. Now, when we go back to the city, the people, the traffic and the crowds – it’s just too much.”


The Malmstrom family loves to spend time outdoors. The region boasts many recreation opportunities.

“We really like basically anything outside,” Leah says. “It feels like there’s a new place to explore every time we go anywhere. All kinds of parks, trails and little beaches to go to. We’ve come to really appreciate what we have here and I don’t think I’d have it any other way.”
