If we’ve ever met, you know it’s only a matter of minutes into a conversation before I want to tell you about my glorious city — Kansas City. When it comes to exploring, shopping or eating, I’m beyond happy to be your guide — and if it’s an adventure you’re looking for, you’d better believe I’m coming along. Last weekend, I had the pleasure of wandering River Market, downtown, Crossroads, Westport and the Country Club Plaza with Katalina Girl Katelyn Herlein and her fiancé Brandon Cheek as they escaped from Des Moines for a fun weekend getaway. It was an unbelievable blast to share some of my favorite secrets of the city while also snapping amazing angles that I’ve been dying for an excuse to capture. Watch for her upcoming travel and recap series on Katalina Girl and Visit KC.
