Leaving Kansas


Written my final day in Lawrence, Kansas: January 31, 2014

Lawrence, you saucy little minx.
I moved back here with my baby, and our temporary stay accidentally lasted 17 years. Thanks for helping me raise my beautiful girl, for the wonderful eclectic mix of creative and brilliant friends, for the top-notch collection of artists and musicians and visionaries and educators, for all the parades (and really, you are the parade-lovingest town ever there was), for the downtown library, for the jaw-dropping views of sunrises and sunsets and rainbows and stars in the sky, for the bald eagles just chilling out downtown, for the dog park (where I left mom’s ashes), for the loves I’ve had (and for comforting me through the heartbreaks, too), and for the oh so many memories I take with me.
Love you, mean it.
