    I love these! My mother-in-law never missed watching the Kentucky Derby on TV and it was my dream to one day take her to the Race. That never happened and she died at the age of 92. But I always think of her at Derby time. She was a spunky lady born in Illinois around 1900, who had her own horse and even rode a borrowed bicycle when girls were not allowed to! She was a school teacher and positively influenced many young lives in her 40 years of teaching. Hope she’ll be watching from Heaven!!

    I really am wanting to throw a Derby Party. Once I babysat my little nephew on Derby Saturday. He whimpered for his Mama the entire time EXCEPT the 2 minutes of the race. He was fascinated.

    Hey M – do you know where I can buy that print? I love it too! I think that was the official print the year I actually got to go to Oaks. Soooo miss this time of year in Lou!

    You really are very generous and I do love The Derby…especially since I won a Superfecta a few years ago. Quite exciting! Studied the horses for a week and even had to make a change since one of my horses bummed out. Luck was with me that day. Thanks for offering the goodies. They would make a Derby party quite fun.

    Love your blog,

    I miss being in Louisville for Derby time so much. I lived there for the first 18 years of my life and now I hardly ever come back. I think the last time I was there for Thunder was 2004. So sad! Derby really is the best time of the year!

    Moved to Kentucky 3 years ago and have come to experience all it’s known for first hand. The derby really is a huge event here. Count me in on your giveaway. It would make the celebration all that more exciting.

    Hey Melissa! Just linked to your blog from Finding My Feet. I moved to KY a little less than 2 yrs ago to get married. And this year we were invited to the OAKS -I’m excited to get to see it live this year after only learning about it last year! And who doesn’t love to wear pink?! Cute blog – thanks for sharing. :)
