June Nineth Two Thousand & Ten 06/09/2010
This morning I left for Misson, Kansas where Shannon Kinney-Duh and her family live. I first met Shannon via the internet somewhere between Twitter, Etsy, the Owning Pink Community and her blog, Free Spirit Knits. I instantly fell in love with her creativity and generosity. So much so, that I created my thumbs up page in honor of her, to share the things, people and places I love with all of you.
The drive to Kansas was filled with brief, but beautiful thunder storms and rolling hills of green grass and cows. One of the coolest things about the drive were the left hand pull offs (heading north-bound) that have Circle K gas stations, picnic tables and McDonalds. It made getting on and off the highway more than convenient. The only thing that would have made it cooler is if the chosen restaurant would have been something healthy and organic.
There were toll tags on the Highway (I-35.) It cost me a total of $6.25 to make my way to Mission. (I thought that was odd.)
I had a feeling before I got here that I was going to feel like I was at home when I arrived. My intuition was correct. I walked into a world of love and creativity of a kind that I have never experienced before. Shannon and her husband, Chris are both artists and there home certainly shows it.
We ate dinner, took a walk to the community garden and then game home for Keasten's (their little one) bedtime.
I have many more lovely details and pictures of their incredible house to come later. But for now I am going to curl up with the whale pillow Keasten so kindly let me borrow. Goodnight.
This will send you a fresh copy of my blog every time I write a new post and update you on special offers.
