Holy Moly - No place like home

I never want to come down from this overwhelming, refreshingly content feeling I have from my visit home.

I seriously LOVE Kansas.

I also understand that most of you are scratching your heads wondering how in the world someone could love a state smack dab in the middle of the U.S.

Yes. It is flat. It is landlocked. There are no mountains. No oceans. It has miserable temperature extremes. And it takes 30 minutes to get from one side of town to the next (not because of traffic...but because of pure space).

However, Kansas is home. Kansas has the most AMAZING people you will ever meet. And after being away from my home state for over four years, I can officially make the judgment that it is such a great place to live. I forgot how happy people are. Seriously, everyone is always smiling. Everyone always willing to lend a helping hand.

But even more wonderful - I made a group of friends over 21 years ago...and those friendships have not grown apart one bit. Yes, we are all in different parts of the country and even more different stages of life...but we all have such a strong bond that no one can shake. I am so thankful for these friendships. And for home. And for Kansas...for bringing us all together again. :)

Check out photos from one of the most FABULOUS, fun, beautiful, and emotionally overwhelming weddings I've ever been to.

Congratulations S & J!!!!

P.S. You'll notice my cutie-pie husband is in none of the photos...sadly, he wasn't able to make it back for the wedding. I did, however, had the most fabulous date ever - my bestie since kindergarten. We had a blast...but I MISSED Mr. Ruby so much!!!!

Looks like such a blast! Sorry hubs couldn't be there - but sometimes its more fun to bust a move with your bff than your hubs on the dance floor at a wedding haha.

I totally know what you are saying about there being no better place than home...

Fun wedding! And I know what you mean about friendly--it's like the whole middle of the U.S. took happy pills when you go there after being on the coasts for awhile! :)
