Of course, the first thing I miss about St. Louis is our friends, but this post is more about the tangible things you could experience if you went to St. Louis for yourself.
Some things I miss about St. Louis:
Missouri Botanical Garden
Seeing the Gateway Arch every time I left the house
The St. Louis Mills (all Nick's dress clothes came from the Hagar outlet)
The Magic House. Henry's just getting to the age that can really enjoy it.
Sweetie Pie's at the Mangrove (for their awesome mac & cheese)
Quik Trip- the greatest place on earth for fountain drinks
Things and Services:
The wall of windows in our apartment
Easy freeway access (it was literally in the front yard)
Awesome eyebrow threading at the Galleria (the Chicago version was TERRIBLE)
St. Louis Camera Club A huge regret is I didn't find out about this until our last year there.
Emily Southerland Photography Beautiful Portrait work
A sales tax rate that's less than tithing (not so in Chicagoland)
Five o'clock traffic is really that- traffic at 5:00, not all day and night.
