Wedding weekend

I had an amazing weekend filled with love, laughter, and late nights.

I was lucky enough to see two friends get married and, as always, the wedding was made even better thanks to reuniting with friends from college.

The weekend reminded me how important it is to share experiences with people you care about (as well as drinking plenty of water before you go to bed).

We all have big milestones and it can be easy to forget that our friends, families, and loved ones make them even more special.

If we don't slow down enough to invite them, we can miss out on incredible moments.

That's why it's important to stop and celebrate, no matter how crazy things get.

The small things

I'm in Kansas City for a wedding and I can't help but notice the small things.

Sure, this city is filled with great food, colorful art, and more hipsters than you can imagine, but there is so much more than meets the eye.

Whether it's the perfect lines of the street murals or the finishing touches to every dish, you can tell this city cares about the details.

Somehow, it embraces the different cultures of each neighborhood while also rallying behind a united front.

From the grassroots efforts of the people to the institutional traditions, this city knows how to connect the dots in a way that St. Louis doesn't.

We could learn a thing or two from our neighbors to the west.

But not beer or baseball - We've already got that covered.
