My lifelong best friend, Sharon, and I turned 60 last month and we decided we would celebrate by spending some time together. This was a trip to historic Weston, MO and Atchison, KS, home of Mary Carol Garrity/Nell Hill's. Mary Carol is the Martha Stewart of KS and her elegant home was open to the public over the weekend. Her retail store is called Nell Hill's and is in downtown Atchison with many other lovely gift shops.
We also attended the New Theater in Overland Park, KS on Friday night and the Atchison Community Theater on Saturday night....both excellent productions.
There was also a farmer's market and flea market in town over the weekend. We also stopped in St.Joe, MO for lunch at a victorian home that is being restored as a bed and breakfast called Whiskey Mansion.
Some pictures to share from the first day....I'll share some of Atchison tomorrow.
