Don’t Quit Your Daydream

  I took some time a few weeks back to sit down with Mary from the Lexington Herald-Leader to chat about how I turned a part-time hobby into a full-time job, and where I see the industry/my future headed in the years to come. It hit newsstands last night (read…

Lexington Staycation

This weekend I had the chance to head back down to Lexington for some much needed R&R at the Hyatt Regency, and from the incredibly welcoming staff to the stellar new menu at BlueFire Bar & Grill the stay was exactly what I needed. If you’re looking for place to…

   Last week I had the chance to attend an Pitch Night Louisville night with the lovely folks from ArtPrize, the largest art competition in the world. While I wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting myself into when I agreed to go, I knew that it involved art and was…

Kentucky Cities

Dude, it went from 70 and spring-like in Louisville to 90 and humid, complete with swamp crotch, in less than a week, and from the looks of this week’s forecast it’s here to stay. Hello summer? I missed you, but I didn’t miss not being able to leave my house…

What a week, what a might fine week. Mighty long as well, but in both good and bad ways – mostly good though. I’ve hit up the yoga studio and ran this week, began assembling all the furniture for my new home office, and took some time off to relax,…

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…

Dude, can I just start by saying how much more productive I am once I step foot outside my house and set up shop just about anywhere else other than my couch? So productive in the fact that I was able to catch up on a month’s worth of emails…

Thursday Things:
DIY Kitchen Hacks

I had contemplated moving apartments, but my landlord isn’t raising rent and my location is pretty rad – so I’m staying put. My kitchen needs some serious love though, these DIY Kitchen Hacks from Emily couldn’t have come at a better time.  Another area of my house that could use…

Home T

Today kicks off Derby festivities for me, but first – it’s time for this month’s Connecting Things Louisville event. This month’s speaker is Bella of Bella of Louisville and Bella Vita Media, and a very special lady that has been there for me since day one of this adventure of…

The Campbell House Lexington, Curio Collection by Hilton

Lexington isn’t that far from Louisville, but this weekend’s trip couldn’t have felt further away – in the best way possible. The Campbell House Lexington, Curio Collection by Hilton was the perfect home away from home for an quick getaway and weekend staycation of sorts.

For many reasons I legitimately can’t believe that The Kentucky Derby is just a few short weeks away. Namely because this year is flying by, but also because for the first time ever I’ll be attending Oaks and The Derby – which is cause for celebration in and of itself.
