We were able to leave Our Little House and make a visit home this weekend, to our native Kansas City.
Dale hadn’t been back to the city since November 2008 and I hadn’t been there in a little over a year. What we learned is that you can go home again, you just have to be prepared for it to be different.
I had some research to work on for a couple of assignments. We also had lots of plans for this weekend that included seeing a few friends, taking walks from our hotel, The Raphael, to the Country Club Plaza, and of course, eating at some of our old favorite haunts.
