Omaha Omaha, Nebraska has been my home for the past three years. I moved here from Kansas City, Kansas after having lived there for two years. Of course, through all of that, I am still a Georgia girl. I spent most of my life in Georgia, through childhood, adolescence, and the beginnings of adulthood. […]
