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.
Bluegrass Days: A Day in the Life of my Annual Summers at Home
It’s easy to dance in Kentucky!
And don’t forget to leave a comment today for a chance to win some of Kentucky’s famous Ruth Hunt candies (hint: you might not need that Bourbon Balls recipe if you win). Yum! Perfect to share at your Derby Party (or keep all for yourself).
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.
