Kentucky Derby 101

It’s officially the best week of the year for Louisville residents – Derby week. From the parties, to the food, long days spent at the track, and literally every single thing in between this week is a blast. An exhaustive blast, that’s definitely a marathon vs. a sprint, but a blast none-the-less. …

Productivity Hacks

I’m flying through my second year of blogging full-time here at The Kentucky Gent, and while working from home is great. It definitely has its disadvantages. Like general lack of an actual schedule. The ability to work from bed in your pajamas. Or never hitting the “off” switch. I’m guilty of…

In My Corner

Can’t believe I’ve been blogging at The Kentucky Gent for almost four years now – two of which have been full-time. CRAZY how time flies. I’ve learned a lot over the years, but I’m humble enough to admit that there’s still a lot left to learn. Actually, it’s one of my…

Black Canadian Tuxedo

It’s been a doozy of a week, and it’s only half over. Consider me more than ready for a nice, quiet weekend at home. But all-in-all, I can’t complain. It’s been a busy, yet fun kind of busy week. Involving way too much food and indulging in my fair share…

Anchal Project
Inspires Goodness

I’ve always considered myself a fairly involved person. Growing up I went on mission trips with my church and did volunteer work. As I got older though it’s safe to say that want waned and self-importance and ignorance took its place. I blame it on the fact that I was young…

Put Together

Walked out the door this morning at 7:30 to head to this month’s Connecting Things event, and it was already over 80 degrees with 100% humidity. Needless to say I plan to work from home for the rest of the day and enjoy cranking my AC as low as it’ll…

I’m finally (mostly) recovered from Sunday’s kayak trip down Blue River in Indiana, and while I’m still nursing a bit of a sunburn on my shoulders – I’m otherwise back to normal, even though it’s safe to say I’m moving a bit more slowly than usual so far this week.

Tuesday Tip:
Visit Shaker Village

Over Father’s Day weekend I had the chance to visit a spot that’s been on my radar for awhile, Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, and let me start by saying that’s it’s well worth the hour or so drive outside of Louisville for a quick weekend getaway or even a…

Leesa

Fun fact: up until last month I’ve had the same mattress since I was in high school. Yes, that means I’ve had the same mattress for close to 10 years. Gross. I know. Lucky for me Leesa was there to save the day (and my back.)

Bourbon Battles

A few weeks back I had the chance to head down to Lexington with the folks at Maker’s Mark and Marriott to kick off their 5-city Bourbon Battles tour with some horse racing, bourbon tastings, and a helluva lot of laughs and good times.
