adventures in kentucky: part one

Guy and I got back from one of the most fun vacations we've had in a while. My perfect vacation includes beautiful scenery, great people, good food, and lots of music. Kentucky managed to fulfill all of this and more. If you haven't been, particulary to Lexington, add it to your 'must' list. You won't be disappointed between the rolling hills, horse farms, and beautiful neighborhoods.

Next up... Keeneland horse races! And maybe some dancing.
If you know me at all... there is ALWAYS dancing.
