These pictures make me happy. Kansas is the Sunflower State after all, and moving here after college was probably the best thing I have ever done. Who cares if my face is make-up free and my hair is in a less-than-flattering pony tail. It's my real life, and a life I am truly appreciate of. Had I never taken a leap of faith and moved out of the state I spent 24 (and a half) amazing years of my life in, I never would have met many of the friends I have today, never would have married the guy that is constantly making me laugh, and never would have laid my eyes on these adorably cute faces below. For me, these photos are much more than just photos in a sunflower field. They are representative of everything I am the most thankful for today.
(Especially my husband who made the trek with us and never once complained about my need for an obsessive amount of photos. That's true love, folks.)
