So, we have some big news and big changes coming to Mod Circus. As you probably read in the title, my husband and I are moving to Kansas City, Missouri! He accepted a position to teach and work in the Bloch School of Management at UMKC, and it's a seriously awesome opportunity we're thrilled about.
Probably the most common question I get asked after we tell people is if Jodi and I are going to continue with the blog. Fear not my friends, the answer is a resounding "yes!" Things will obviously not be the same since we'll be living over five hours away from each other, and not a block away, but we're putting plans in place to make it work.
While it's no doubt sad for us as not only blog partners, but as good friends, we're also super excited about all the new restaurants, shops, art and culture Kansas City has to offer that I'll be able to feature on the blog. Being in two different locations, we'll be able to cover life in both Missouri and Illinois, and hopefully, that will make for a richer, more encompassing experience for you lovely readers. And we may even meet up halfway to cover more ground!
My husband and I snapped these pics last weekend while visiting Kansas City looking for a place to live. For these photos, in the "City of Fountains" (OK, and BBQ. And jazz.), we thought it would only make sense to go to the most well-known fountain in the city, The JC Nichols Memorial Fountain.
We also got decked out in our new KCMO tees we ordered from The Bunker. I know, what tourists we are, but how cool are they? I styled mine with flared crops and lace up shoes for a polished but casual Sunday afternoon look.
We move in about a month, so not long after that, you can expect to see local Kansas City spots on the blog as well as Central Illinois. I was born and raised about an hour from Kansas City, so I'm excited to get reacquainted with place I referred to as "The City" while growing up. And to drag my Illinoisan husband back to the good ol' MO with me too.
We're sad to leave such wonderful friends, colleagues, and family in Central Illinois, but excited for a new adventure. If you know of good Kansas City spots to hit, I'm all ears! Also, shameless plug: if you know of anyone hiring a graphic designer in KC, feel free to direct them to my website, Molly Heise Design and let me know. :)
OK, usually, Our Beautiful Husbands (or OBH for short) stay behind the camera, but I thought he deserved a shot in this post. He was hesitant, but he's a natural, huh?
