I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Man (and woman) cannot live on fried chicken alone, and even though Kentucky is home to the original Kentucky Fried Chicken, there’s another historic establishment in the Bluegrass State that’s even sweeter. The Dairy Queen in Murray is not only hailed as the world’s best, but it’s also the oldest operating shop in Kentucky and a perennial Bluegrass State favorite worth seeking out.
