Ad Astra Per Aspera


Today, January 29th, marks the day which my home state was admitted to the union.  Every year on this day I feel the need to celebrate all things Kansas.  I think that might stem from the fact that Kansas day was a really big deal in elementary school - we always had an assembly and spent the learning day celebrating the best of the state's history.  This day reminds me of many good times in my life, of good people I celebrated with who still remain my friends and of all the things that bring a smile to my face when I think about my 22 years in the sunflower state.  

Even though the Jayhawks lost this weekend, and I can't come close to having a beer from the best brewery in the world, I'm still going to celebrate.  I will listen to this band (reminds me of my years in Lawrence), maybe try to hunt down a sunflower or two to brighten up our home and think about all of my friends and family back home.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday!
