This year I want to focus on trying new places and supporting local business as much as possible. I was planning a trip to Bonner Springs and I found myself in the cutest little coffee shop! Third Space was the perfect place to spend the morning reflecting and goal setting.

Third Space Coffee is a coffee shop tucked away in the charming town of Bonner Springs, KS. I hadn’t spent much time in the area before my visit but I was blown away Third Space Coffee and by the darling shops on Main

With the turn of the new year comes a swift jolt back into what feels like the hum drum of day-to-day reality. However, Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, bringing the perfect opportunity to show those you love just how excited you are to have them in your life.  They say the quickest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. These tasty events, experiences and gift ideas will have both stomachs and hearts filled to the brim this month in Kansas City, KS. 

It’s a brand new year and we all seemed to have braced the first few weeks back to work. Why is it so difficult to get back to work after a break? The struggle is real, but retail therapy for me is very soothing. So in order to beat the blues of getting back to the grind, I decided to splurge on myself with some shopping at my favorite mall - Legends Outlets Kansas City

At Bichelmeyer Meats, people come for the meat market, but stay for the tacos.

Every Saturday, Bichelmeyer Meats transforms into a bustling taqueria serving tacos, tamales, and quesadillas along with the usual meat market patrons. Customers sit family style on one of the several banquet style tables clad with red-checked tablecloths and set with plastic green lawn chairs. Everyone in the joint is in good spirits, and once you take your first bite of taco – you soon find out why. 

Cold weather months don’t have to mean that all of your family’s fun and travel are put on pause. Since the time around holidays and the New Year can be so chaotic, our family often finds that this is when we need to disconnect from our daily life and unwind more than ever. We did just that as we celebrated our daughter Caelyn’s birthday at Great Wolf Lodge! She was turning 4 years old, and we wanted to make it a special adventure for her.

The holiday season is here! And if it's the holidays then shopping is high on everyone's to-do list. What kind of shopper are you? Are you someone who prides herself/himself for thoughtful, handpicked gifts for your friends and family? Or do you go for gift cards? If you see yourself in the first group, then I have some good news for you! Every family has a foodie, and food and beverage gifts that are also local to Kansas City, KS is a win-win for sure! I decided to round up some unique items for the food-lover in your life.
