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.)

Hey, hi, hello. This space has been pretty quiet since last week, typically I wouldn’t acknowledge that cause we all deserve some time off here and there, but in the spirit of being transparent I’ll say that the events in Orlando hit home more than I imagined they would.

Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and while I know that sweet kiddos like us are the ultimate gift I’m sure all the dads out there wouldn’t mind an actual gift or two.  Hate spending a lot of time in the kitchen this time of year, and these easy…

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.

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…

World Cocktail Day

TGIF! Am I right? It’s been one of the longest couple of weeks I’ve had in awhile, but the last few days have been hella productive, the rain has stopped, and today is World Cocktail Day. Sounds like a cause for celebration if I ever heard one, who’s with me?

Kentucky Derby 2016

And just like that, they’re off. In honor of the 142nd Run for the Roses I figured I’d dedicate this week’s Thursday Things to the best two minutes in sports. Whether you’re a local, visitor, or someone admiring from afar – I’ve got you covered.  Ben Sollee launched his new…

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…

Jubil8

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.
