I've visited Kansas City a few times, and the place definitely did surprise me! Here are some lovely photos of our soon-to-be new home:

one of the city's famous landmarks - Union Station
Also, I'll just go ahead and clear this up for all of y'all who haven't brushed up on your Midwest geography lately. Kansas City, MO and Kansas City, KS are the same city spread across state lines. I know a lot of you were wondering. We'll most likely be living on the Missouri side.
We'll also be having some sort of going-away shindig in July to make sure we see all our NYC friends before we leave - so, stay tuned!
