Happy Birthday, Kansas 2020


Sunflower State. Jayhawk State. Midway State. Or Wheat State.

Whatever you call her, today is the day to celebrate our favorite fly-over state.

Happy Kansas Day!

How are you celebrating?

In my house, we’ve got sunflowers in a vase, ribs on our dinner plates and a fresh loaf of homemade wheat bread in the oven. Alexa is playing Martina McBride and Melissa Ethridge on repeat all day long.

And the anticipation of the Chiefs playing in the Super Bowl this weekend is all we can talk about at the dinner table!

The Rockhill Real Estate Group team is full of several born-and-raised Kansas folks with the rest choosing to call this sweet state home. Check out the graphic to see the little towns and cities our agents and staff have roots in.

At our weekly meeting, we always begin with a “Question of the Day” and this week the question was “What’s your favorite thing or fact about Kansas” and I’m happy to share them with you.

Cindy- The plains and the prairies are the best!

Heather- The state meal of KS is more like a 12-course feast: it consists of fried okra, squash, cornbread, barbecued pork, biscuits, sausage and gravy, grits, corn, strawberries, chicken fried steak, black eyed peas, and pecan pie.
