Today I am thankful for being from NE Kansas. Most people laugh when they hear that, but those that laugh don't truly know what Kansas is like. All they know is the way the state and its inhabitants are protrayed on television (hello Criminal Minds!). Northeast Kansas is beautiful, with lots of trees and hills and it is so incredibly green that whenever I go back, I am amazed by the absolute greenness of the place.
I love Kansas. I love that whenever I think of home, I think of the tiny town where I grew up, where I walked to my grandma's house after school, where on Halloween I roamed around with a pillowcase to collect candy.
I miss it, and it will always be home, no matter where I live.
