Breeders’ Cup

Lets just get real here, this post is all about the day I met Taylor Lautner. Enjoy the other stuff too, but lets get the important stuff out of the way first. I don’t think anyone understands how much I loved Twilight growing up, and yes, I’m admitting to that right here on the Internet for the whole world to read. I was such a huge fan that when I saw him I knew if I didn’t ask for a…

My Atomic Valentine

Kentucky is known for its bourbon. We have bourbon trails, bourbon tasting, and around Christmas at least one family member receives a bottle (at least in my family). Buffalo Trace Distillery is one of the coolest bourbon distilleries in Kentucky, as it’s surrounded in lush, green landscape and smells of sweet bourbon cookie bread ALL THE TIME. In the colder months, it’s always a drag to have to cover up your outfit with some form of bulky outerwear just to…

Antelope Island

Let me start by saying that if there is a heaven on earth, Antelope Island is it. I wish we’d visited earlier in our trip because I probably would have demanded we go back every day and watch the sun set over the Great Salt Lake that surrounded the island. It was almost magical how pure everything was there. Bison, Antelope, and Deer all roamed free and the land was untouched except for a few roads to help you find…

Free All Adventures

I remember my childhood as the time where I didn’t understand why Ariel wasn’t treated like a real princess, what the big deal was with Jesse McCartney, and why I had to have fifty AR points by the end of the week. The thing about our childhoods is that they are all adventures. We play pretend, we dream, and one day something reminds us of the days when we used to dream and be adventurous on a daily basis. For…

The World, the Bridge, and the Vest

I’m lucky to live in one of the few states that still has covered bridges. The Switzer Covered Bridge near Frankfort has been restored over the years, and on the outside it’s like any other covered bridge; charming, barn-like and inviting. On the inside, though, it’s as unique as they come. Covered in questionable graffiti, it’s a really awesome place to head out to if you’re looking for a short road trip from Lexington (about 30 minutes). NOTE: DO NOT…

A Day In Key West

Key West is one of those places that makes you want to wear bright colors and explore. It still blows my mind that we were able to reach all of our destinations with just a bike ride. I’m so used to having to hop in my car to go anywhere that the idea of riding bikes to sightsee was foreign. One day packed full of explorations and I felt like I could really say I had been to Key West…

From Here To Somerset

Just because you aren’t on vacation, doesn’t mean you can’t do a little exploring in your home state. In Kentucky, sometimes it seems all there is to see is horses, farms, and race tracks. Every once in a while though, you can uncover things you never knew existed. My sister Krystal and I set out to explore Louisville, only about two hours away from our home of Lexington. It’s a much bigger bustling version of Lexington so, when you’re itching…

Macarons At Noon

What’s cool about Key West is being able to just walk around and explore. Your car is almost useless for a lack of parking, and everything is within a walk or bike ride. We didn’t have to explore for too long before we found our location, the porch of our hotel. NYAH was one of the cutest places I’ve stayed at in a while. There were multiple pools, the cutest pink chairs in the lobby, and a happy hour with…

The Not So Secret Garden

During our trip to Colorado, my sister and I were lucky enough to get to stay super close to Garden of the Gods. It was practically a necessity to drive through once a day. You can’t go anywhere within the park without seeing something amazing; we even ran into a family of deer one day! The print of this dress has a really cool western vibe it really makes it unique. The fabric is flowy, so the two lines of…

The Dunes Day Quest

The photos in this post were taken at one of the most beautiful locations I’ve ever seen. I never thought a place like Great Sand Dunes National Park existed in the states. When the dunes first came into view, they looked just like a painting, but knowing they were real was absolutely mind blowing. Too bad walking through the dunes wasn’t quite as magical as looking at them. It was freezing, windy, and of course sandy. It feels like walking…
