Our love affair with Kansas City started nearly 4 years ago when we moved here for career opportunites. It is such a wonderful city that offers a warm welcome to all. This city is fun, energetic and full of culture. A few things Kansas City is most commonly know for are BBQ, fountains, sports (in a positive way as of recent) and jazz.
I love BBQ, adore baseball and I definitely enjoy jazz music, but my favorite KC things are the cultural activities and entrepreneurial spirit. If I could split my days between Union Station, the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, I would. I just need to find out what career would allow for that and I would be set for life.
Kansas City's entrepreneurial spirit is contagious. I know it played a part in pushing me to start Trust Your Closet and inspires other business ideas I have. There are so many startups here, and it is a great pleasure of mine to give them my business as much as I can. Outside of tech startups, KC is becoming well-known for it's t-shirt businesses. Who doesn't love a great t-shirt? I certainly do! The majority of the KC t-shirt companies create KC and Missouri/Kansas themed tees. Some designs create camaraderie, some make you laugh, some bring back memories and some call attention to a cause. The next time you are suffering from gifters block, shop local. Create that love and pride for your community that KC is so great at evoking.
This city wraps you up and holds you tight. We have a mad love affair for ol' KC, and I don't see it dissipating anytime soon. If you are visiting KC be sure to stop and enjoy the local restaurants and bars, startups and cultural venues. You just may fall head-over-heels.
Thank you so much for following along. And as always, Trust Your Closet.
p.p.s. Isn't this Lance Flores wall mural beautiful and super cool?! Ryan and I found this wall, and knew we had to use it for this blog post. It encompasses all of what KC is know for. For those of you who are curious, it is located on the backside of 1889 Napoletana Pizza, a local pizza place coming in March. I CANNOT WAIT TO TRY IT. I also have a love affair with pizza! lol
