    In many respects it is like your home, no matter how nice it is seeing someone else’s seem to be better then yours because you live there. Having grown up in Wichita, I seldom notice things I have been exposed to most of my life.

    Never truly appreciate what is there and to be seen or experienced, it is just the same ole place I have always known. I fell in love with North Carolina and upon coming back it seemed that Kansas was so bland and lacking color.

    But after spending a week in Oklahoma coming back I noticed how beautiful that Kansas seem to me.

    I often think of getting one of those truism travel guilds of Kansas, to see what I never knew was here.
    It can be surprising sometimes, the first time I passed through Oxford Ks. I was impressed.

    A beautiful and rustic town just a short drive away and I had no idea it was there!
