I’m joined today by “Mrs. Midwest,” the pen name for Caitlin, who runs a blog called Mrs. Midwest and who joined YouTube in 2019 with the goal of creating a haven for traditionally feminine women trying to find their place in this modern world.
As a traditional wife and homemaker, it is Caitlin’s aim to help women blossom into their natural femininity through discussions on style, mindset, and relationships.
She explores topics relating to elegance, femininity, traditional relationships, and homemaking, with a little bit of my “real” life thrown in.
