“The sun shines bright on my Old Kentucky Home”….
May is a spectacular month to be living in the bluegrass state. Aside from the beautiful flowers and trees that are in bloom, the first Saturday in May is reserved for the Kentucky Derby. The most exciting 2 minutes in sports!

I’ve mentioned before that I grew up in Salt Lake City, but am happily a resident of Louisville, Kentucky for 16 years now. I’ve always tried to “bloom” where I was planted and embracing all the good things that Kentucky has to offer is part of that to me.
Last year I did a series on my blog to celebrate the Derby…. With the Derby coming up next week I thought I’d do a little round up of the ideas that were shared.
First if you’d like to learn a little bit more about the Kentucky Derby…
and speaking of movies….
I absolutely LOVE this movie!!
