Toto ... I don't think I am in Atlanta this week ...


My parents arrived on Tuesday evening and I flew out early yesterday morning to spend the rest of the week with Lawyer.  After leaving the always chaotic Atlanta airport I was shocked to arrive at the very small and quite quaint Kansas City, Missouri airport.  Five gates for Delta and from the gate I could see the parking lot.  Wow ... what a difference!  I gathered my rental car with GPS and set off for Overland Park, Kansas.

So ... Kansas is very different from Atlanta.  Having never traveled to the mid west before I was overwhelmed by exactly how different it was.  The people themselves are lovely and the city is quite clean but overall it has a feeling I can not quite describe.  As I got off the exit I passed a Chick Fil A, Jimmy Johns and Sonic ... so it can't be that different than my every day.  I gathered lunch at the Whole Foods and I spent the late part of the afternoon at the hotel resting and reading.  Lawyer arrived after work and we had a fabulous dinner at a local Italian restaurant.  The sangria and I are now best friends!! 

I am so incredibly thankful to my parents for giving me and us this time together.  I am here until Saturday morning when I return home to my babies ...

Have a good week!

  1. I'm a long time reader and live in Leawood, KS! Feel free to email me if you need restaurant or shopping ideas. There's a wonderful antique district close to the Plaza as well as Webster House downtown, which is an old school turned antique store/restaurant. For delicious food go to Avenues Bistro in Mission Farms. It's in Overland Park and is one of my favorite restaurants. Hope you enjoy your time here!

  2. I have never been to Atlanta, but I can imagine you were shocked when you got to KCI and started driving towards Overland Park! It is way out there in the middle of no where.

    Have you hit up Oak Park Mall yet? I would also suggest Town Center Plaza and Hawthrone Plaza right across the street (but the weather is getting so cold today).

    Enjoy your stay!!

  3. I was in Jupiter FL last weekend and thought of you as we passed the infamous red roofed house on our way to the sandbar. I counted and it's seven houses from my parents' home. ENJOY your trip!

  5. I know what you mean about the KC airport being so small. I used to travel there pretty regularly for business and it was so easy to get in and out of.
