2nd Anniversary: My Bluegrass State — Unbridled Spirit

22 04 2010

Well, today, as we celebrate this week in blog history (history, history, history… that was me in the big, echoing microphone, if you didn’t get that), we focus on Kentucky.

Most of you know, that’s where I (Ginger, here) was born and raised and will call home. We’ve said a good bit (though never enough) about the Bluegrass State. With the Derby coming on, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to look at the beautiful outfits Becky put together earlier this week if you haven’t already. Though beware, they are so beautiful, you’ll want every piece she featured (that wasn’t just me, right?). If you’re looking for a little inspiration for that annual Southern Derby party, you might consider viewing this documentary on the “two most exciting minutes in sports.”

If you haven’t been recently, there is so much Kentucky has to offer — music, scenery, history, and those ever famous thoroughbred horses. Summer is a great time to visit the Bluegrass State, and if you can’t make it for the Derby, you might consider catching the Equestrian Games later this year, hosted, for the first time ever, in America.

But for today, let’s look back to a few of our favorite posts over the years featuring Kentucky.

And in further celebration… don’t forget to comment to win our other week-long celebration of prizes — from North Carolina, the Mitford Books; from Tennessee, Corky’s BBQ sauce and dry rub; and from Georgia, Phickles Pickles.

My favorite part of the Derby is watching everyone dress up. But my question is, where does everyone get those hats? All the ones I find just make me look stupid. Am I not looking hard enough?
