I snapped this photo heading south on Highway 75 out of Burlington. Nate and I spent the morning of November 19 driving to Maize, Kansas. This is Kansas. The landscape is foreign to Middle Tennessee. It's open prairie and Flint Hills and empty horizon for as far as you can see. And everyone breathes a little easier in Kansas. I didn't learn to miss this place until I left it. We love living in Nashville, and we love being from Kansas.
