Travel writer and Wisconsin native Megan L. Wood has a great post today on her blog, and on The Awl, a New York-based content site.  

Titled "It’s Cute That New York is Slowly Catching up to Wisconsin," the story chronicles several things about our fine state that are often taken for granted. 

Wood, who moved from Wisconsin to New York City this year, realizes what many of us know; that is, that Milwaukee and Wisconsin are indeed very "cool."   

Enjoy this piece where Wood realizes she, again like many of us, was "born in the coolest place on earth – and now everyone is trying to catch up."

Hat tip to Hanson Dodge’s Sara Meaney and Al Krueger for posting this on Facebook this morning.
