Know what I love? Arkansas.

I'm incredibly privileged to serve alongside cool kids like +Mimi San Pedro and +Elizabeth Philpott on the +Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission ‪#‎Greeniversary‬ team - a celebration of keeping our state stunning for 25 years.

Will you join in and support the effort in honor of someone you love or just because Arkansas is your favorite, too?  http://www.greeniversary.org

My post on the delights of driving old Highway 71 in Arkansas is featured on the Only in Arkansas site through First Security Bank - check it out and give the social media pages a like - there are lots of great features coming soon on this virtual love letter to Arkansas!
Every single one of our old state highways is full of treasures, and it’s a pleasant change of pace to slow down and soak them in. Come along on part one of my journey up Highway 71, from Texarkana to Lockesburg.
