Now that we are officially settled into our home (which is a short…10 miles? from Manhattan), I will be spending a lot more time focusing on this blog.
For the past couple years I’ve used this blog just as a tool to write a little bit, get some stuff on paper, metaphorically.
Now, I’ve decided to dedicate it more towards life in Kansas. Since Manhattan has K-State and is so close to Ft. Riley, we get a lot of ‘outsiders’ in the area. A lot of them think there is nothing to do here. I want to prove them wrong.
Kansas has always been my home, and probably always will. Kansas is gorgeous, full of wide open spaces with plenty of fun activities in between. Even though I have lived here my whole life, there are many places in this state that I have yet to see, such as the world’s largest ball of twine.
We are also the geographic center of the contiguous United States. A man built a replica of the Golden Gate Bridge basically in his backyard. We have Monument Rocks, and of course, the Flint Hills.
Manhattan has slowly started to feel more like home. I have finally figured out where everything is. I have a few local favorite places to go, some old, some new.
Over time I will (hopefully) be filling these pages with the wonders of the Sunflower State.
