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…

Polo Red Extreme

I’ve always been a cologne guy. And I still remember the first couple of colognes that I obsessed over during my high-school days. I wouldn’t leave the house without dousing myself in one scent or the other. These days, I’m not quite as bad, and I typically only spritz on…

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…

Buffalo Plaid

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.

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.

I set out with the goal of being hella productive this week, and I’m happy to check in mid-week and report that for the most part – I’ve been incredibly productive. From unpacking and setting up my new home office space to getting a few runs in as well getting…

Beer Brats and Sauerkraut

I’m sharing #SausageFamily in my life as part of a Johnsonville sponsored series for Socialstars™. My mom wasn’t the biggest cook when I was growing up, mostly because my dad was in the military and there would be some nights that he wouldn’t be home from work until well past…

Butchertown

I swear the weekends have started to get shorter and shorter now that the weather is warming up. Probably due to the fact that I’m trying to split my time between being a productive adult that has mile long to-do lists and enjoying patio weather with a cocktail or two.

Tuesday Tip:
Derby Like A Local

“The Kentucky Derby: the most exciting two minutes in sports..” is something I’ve heard on repeat for as long as I can remember, and besides KFC, it’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear Kentucky used in a sentence. And I get that – we’re no NYC or LA,…

Life Update

When it rains, it pours. Am I right? I’ve been more than a little radio silent over the last few days (most of last week), and while things are finally starting to settle down on the home front – I’m slowly settling back into the flow of every day life vs….
