Thank you faithful readers for checking in all month as we celebrate the month of love.  I have loved reading all of the sweet stories that we have received!

bluegrass lovebirds: greg + jessica

Here we are at my favorite time of year on Bluegrass Threads: the Bluegrass Lovebirds series!  Each year in honor of Valentine’s Day (and to combat these gloomy gray days), we feature couples that met, married or moved to the bluegrass area.  A huge thank you to all of the couples who nominated themselves or friends to participate!

I have had the privilege of knowing the first of our 2016 Lovebirds for many years.  They are both such amazing people and graciously contribute their time and talents to worthy local and regional causes.  Introducing…

halloween recap

Hope you and your family enjoyed a fun Halloween weekend!

My family reveled in the crisp, fall air and sweet time with family and friends.  My little guy was an astronaut for the second year in a row, which I find totally adorable.  I am space-OBSESSED and possess a freakish knowledge of early space program trivia, so I really do get such a kick out of his costume selections.

Here we are this year, quite the costumed-trio:

4th of july recap

Here’s a little photo recap of our fun 4th of July:

The milder temps made it a perfect day to be outside, although we did skip the pool.  The park for a friend’s birthday party was a great alternative.

 We spent the day hanging out at the park and playing with friends and family.  So much fun!

4thofjuly5This little guy got to enjoy fireworks for the first time this year.  He was decked out in his pjs and his headphones (just in case!) for the show at our neighborhood park.  He loved them so much that we headed downtown to catch the city’s show.

Hope you enjoyed a fabulous 4th!

have your own backyard adventure

…and not necessarily in your literal backyard.  I know that I talked about some of our favorite past Kentucky day trips, but there are so many other beautiful (and often hidden) outdoor places to enjoy.  Over the weekend, we got to explore an amazing old mill in Versailles, KY that was the site of a friend’s wedding.

Could anything be more “Kentucky”?  Love checking out new spots with my handsome husband.  It was fun to snap a few photos under these lush trees and down by the creek!
