There's No Place Like Home

Dear Kansas,
You've been good to us, but it's time to go. Oklahoma has been calling our name since we moved to the Yellow Brick road state three years ago....almost to the date. We have had much happen to us here....
Brady and I got married while living in Kansas.
Brady graduated school while living in Kansas.
We had Case while living in Kansas.
We made many friendships, some that we will cherish for a lifetime.
Kansas brought us closer together. It stuck by us through some rough times and some wonderful moments.
We've often complained about living here but it's just because we missed our home....Oklahoma!
And now...we are going home. Home to create a home for ourselves with our little family. Home so our little Case can be with family instead of at daycare. Home where our hearts will grow. Home is and always will be Oklahoma. Sorry Kansas, but we must understand.
So, as we click our ruby red slippers a few times, we head to Oklahoma with many memories left behind in Kansas.
