There is No Place Like Home: A Kansas Wedding




Alyssa and Travis my Kansas sister and brother!

Just as wild and crazy as I remember them... catch is they didn't recognize me.... that might have something to do with an unfortunate bowl cut in the third grade... PRAISE THE LORD for highlights and layers! 


 A few weeks ago my mom and I headed back to our old neighborhood in Kansas for a wedding of a wonderful family friend. It was easily one of the most memorable weddings I have ever been to. There were incredible personal details-- her dress was redesigned from her mom's dress, a killer dance party, perfect country chic decor, people I hadn't seen in years and two people,one of which I have looked up to since I was four, madly in love. It was truly a night to remember.
As I was standing with a group of boys that at one point in life I thought either had cooties or was the cutest boy on the planet (possibly in the same day, we are talking elementary school here people). I was stuck by the fact that it was incredibly easy to pick up (almost) where we left off... except this time we were holding iPhone's instead of Tamigachi's. I realized that despite living in Texas for well over 10 years that Kansas is my home. I say "yall", call every type of "Soda" a coke, will gladly put my Texas Caviar recipe against any one else's and will ALWAYS be a Fighting Texas Aggie my roots are in the Sunflower state. It feels nice to have a home... especially one that is so famous for there being no place like it!
