Photo Diary: The Birthplace of Walmart

This post has been a long time coming, but I've FINALLY settled down and gotten my act together.

These were taken during a work trip to Bentonville, Arkansas, the birthplace of Walmart. It was definitely a different world over there, but the people were so pleasant and pretty much EVERYONE has worked or know someone who works at Walmart. I was quite surprised to see a few Target's there but I found out they were actually in the neighboring towns. I love Walmart.
