A hometown can be a tricky thing for a girl who moved frequently as a child. While I spent my elementary years on the shores of Lake Houston in Texas and junior high hold up in big city of Dallas. It was the move to Kansas that made the biggest impression on me.
Only ten miles from Missouri this Kansan is proud to be on the "right" side of the state line. The Jayhawk side. Not quite in the Kansas City limits. (yes there are two KC, KS and KC, MO) we have been residents of Overland Park for almost 24 years.
A little slice of city meets country. A place you can find a Nordstrom and a few corn fields. Home to many nomads from all over the country who now call it home and a few who grew up here and moved away...Jason Sudekis, Paul Rud, and Rob Rigle. (Spelled incorrectly on purpose as to not draw the wrong crowd.)
I would never trade the season that we have in Kansas and head back to Texas for all the bluebonnets I could hold. Although we may not have a true yellow brick road we do have a field full of sunshine should you ever feel gloomy.
Thank you Tammy for hosting a wonderful swap...and for bringing back a few fun memories.
Mending Monday will return next week.
