i have never really done a guest post before so coming up with something to talk about was tricky. i am not too keen on talking about myself. i only really have a blog as to be able to look back on my life with edited eyes. i am not much of a writer. since krista is moving to back to the midwest from california, i thought i would write about the things i miss about the midwest (specifically kansas), as i am part californian and part midwestern.
-as summer is embarking the midwest, i can't help but miss the loud, crazy, awesome thunderstorms. i miss counting the seconds from the lightning to the sound of the thunder and trying to guess how far away the storm is.
-the smell rain.
-lawrence and its charm.
-the deafening sound of the cicadas during the summer.
-buying the freshest produce around from farmer's with corn so sweet, you can eat it raw.
-as gross as this is, i miss steak n' shake. i worked there for a few years in high school and i can tell you from experience, it really is that disgustingly good. mmm...chili mac aka spaghetti noodles with ketchup and this weird meat mash.
-the nelson atkins museum and walking through it with my grandma.
-riding mini motorcycles.
-stockton lake and cliff jumping while camping in an rv with my dad amongst the amish.
-lightning bugs and locust shells.
-fourth of july and firecracker wars.
i hope krista has an easy move and adapts quickly to her new life in colorado. thanks for having me!
