    While I have driven through the Prairie Village/Mission Hills area most of my adult life - I have only really started to appreciate the charm of it since my husband and I moved into the area a couple of years ago. For three seasons of the year the beautiful trees hang over the streets and provide a charming outdoor landscape. My boys are now old enough to walk with friends to grab pizza at the Village Shops and take in the outdoors while doing so It reminds me of when I was young and we were free to play and be gone most of the day without care or worry. Kansas City, while big, also seems like several small communities when you breakdown the city. Prairie Village is just one of the many charming areas from which to choose.

    Next time you are headed down to eat at the Village shops, assuming the weather is o.k., you might consider getting out of your car and taking a walk. You won't regret it!

  • I love the Kentucky Derby. In fact, each year my parents, siblings, husband, and children don our hats, place our bets, and relish in the two most exciting minutes in sports.

    As a Derby fan and Prairie Village resident, I was surprised to learn that Prairie Village is home to the only ever Kentucky Derby winner from Kansas. Lawrin won the Derby in 1938 and the farm where he trained is now Corinth Square. Follow the link to read the entire article!

    I love Prairie Village! In fact, PV is not only my favorite place to work, but it is also where my husband and I live and are raising our four kids.

    There is little I appreciate more than good food and beverage so it's only natural that my first "Favorite Things Insight" feature my favorite PV restaurant- Story! The quaint setting, knowledgeable and friendly staff, amazing wine list, and excellent menu combine to deliver an elegantly relaxing dining experience right in the heart of the Village Shops.

    Story offers a great happy hour Tuesday - Friday from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. They also feature a $10 entree for members of their mailing list on Sunday evenings.

    One of the many reasons Prairie Village real estate continues to be a hot commodity in all markets is the unique amenities offered in the heart of it. Always evolving, the Village offers some interesting places you must see. The PV Post (pvpost.com), a great community website keeping neighbors up to speed on all of the local happenings posted the following about the new French Market that just opened this week:

    "Earlier this fall, the Quillecs, who run the award-winning Café Provence just a few doors down from the new store, took a three-and-a-half week trip to Brittany to line up suppliers for French Market, and say a number of straight-from-France products will debut in the coming months. To start, though, the store is focused on offering take-home versions of some of the most popular fare from Café Provence. There are the restaurant’s popular salad dressings, soups and quiche, as well as French standards like coq a vin and pate."

    Our family has lived in Prairie Village for a few years now and I am still taken aback by the energy and community of families buzzing around The Village shopping center. If you are interested in living in a vibrant place where people are always in their front yards, visiting with neighbors and out walking, this is the place for you.

    The Village boasts a Starbuck's, Dolce Bakery, Euston's Hardware and several other local businesses and eateries we frequent. But, we just tried Standee's, a movie theatre with dining and drinks, for the first time and loved it! It is a must for date night or for the family and it is within walking distance of lots of other great places!
