Kansas.

It rocks.
You look like you don't believe me.
But trust me, it does.


You all should move here.

alot of people think kansas is boring and there is nothing to do, but i don't. i think its beautiful. thanks to my dad i've seen alot of kansas. we used to go on road trips. the furthest we went was liberal to see the geografical center of the contiguous 48 states. it was kind of unimpressive, but the family time was fun!

Heather said...

i mean lebanon...we went to liberal too though...

LF said...

I am a born and raised Kansan, and DEFINITELY agree!!!!

It is so wonderful to love where you live...I feel the same way!

I am having a "Blue Monday" giveaway. Hope you can pop over and take a look! So nice visiting your blog today! Have a great Wednesday!

Stay Cozy, Carrie

Aww, you're making me miss it. I grew up in Kansas. I don't live too far away (Oklahoma), but still nothing beats the way you can see ALL the way to the horizon at sunset.

Looks beautiful to me!!

Bridgette said...

Green grass!! I miss it. We're still brown here in Minnesota. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. :)

I have two friends that moved to Kansas from Florida and they love it, snow and all!

Days like that picture will make people want to visit for sure. Its cold and dreary in Nebraska today. So Im liking your pic much better.

Chad and Jody said...

beautiful.

Abby said...

That picture makes me miss home, which will always be Kansas. Spent the first 22 years of my life there and the last 7 in 4 other states - MO, OH, FL and SC - and they don't compare. Only 3.5 more years until we can come back, for some reason the Navy just doesn't have any bases in KS! :)

You May Say I'm A Dreamer said...

Gorgeous! Kansas tends to get a bad rap, but I have always thought it is a beautiful state! Thanks for sharing:)

Vanessa said...

I believe you!! That photo is so lovely. I live in AZ and we have "grass" if you can call it that ha ha. It never grows well no matter how hard we try. I have my sights on moving someday though :)

The McIntyre Family said...

With this warm weather we have had everything is defiantely greening up, including the wheat. Just wish it would stay warm.
I have lived in KS my whole life...actually not to far from you. You always say you want to live somewhere else when you live some place, but actually KS is not bad and will probably never leave!

Terri said...

I agree! It's the only place you can live where it is 28 degrees and snowing on Saturday and then a balmy 73 on Monday!! Not to mention that Wichita was rated No. 1 most affordable city on the today show the other day ! Woohoo!

Ruth said...

dangit, i'm coming over.
one day.
for sure!

Casey said...

I have been BEGGING my husband to move to KS. Don't get me wrong, I love FL, but man, real estate is ex-pen-sive! My husband, who now drives a truck for living, just drove through KS today. He went through Kansas City, Emporia, Newton, Hutchinson and of course lots of other small cities. He thought is was gorgeous! Keeping my fingers crossed that we can move to the country!

Sara said...

maybe if I could be YOUR neighbor, and you always took pictures of my kids...
but, we have Disneyland in 10 minutes. Maybe YOU should move HERE!

Amy, a redeemed sheep said...

We drove though Kansas last September on our way to Texas. I was blown away by the beauty of Kansas. We will be diving through again in May and I can't wait!

rentz said...

Anytime we are driving somewhere, I always look at Ryan and say: How can anyone not think Kansas is beautiful?! His reply is always: You're preaching to the chior. I especially love this time of year when the wheat is first beginning to come up. Gorgeous!

Alison said...

LOL! I just watched a video today about the destruction of tornadoes in, among other places...Kansas! Nice to see another side of the state.

Country Dreaming said...

As my profile says "I am Missouri born and bred but Kansas wed."
I love the midwest and wouldn't want to live anywhere else.I would miss our four seasons.
Ther is more to do here than a lot of people think.

amy d said...

kansas is fine...in the spring, summer & fall.
i'm just a cold, snow, & winter snob.

TexNan said...

Lovely picture. And thanks for commenting on my $5 challenge post. I'm a junky for praise!

Wired Whimsy said...

Okay, but you're gonna need to build a pretty big barn to house us all. Let me know when my wing of said barn is ready and I'm as good as there! ;-)

Seeker said...

I love vistas.

And...oops, I did it again. You made me, lol.

Lindsay Thomas said...

THANK YOU! Living in Texas and from Nebraska. People assume it's crazy boring "up there" and that's why I must have "fled to Texas". Take me back please. I miss NE. I miss that picture in real life. I miss grass. I miss 4 full seasons.
Thank you for letting me vent my frustrations about living in a new state. :)
Nothing like the midwest. Nothing.

Annie @ The House That Jade Built said...

Love this post - I'm from Illinois & it's beautiful too! A lot of people don't realize there is a lot more to IL than Chicago - about 95% of the state actually isn't Chicago :) We live in the deep country & I can't imagine life any other way!
