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.
Here in Kentucky, Derby Day is a statewide holiday. We dress to the nines, drink our weight in mint juleps, and revel in a celebration that pretty much takes over downtown Louisville. One of the highlights of Derby Day (aside from, you know, the actual race itself), is the Pegasus Parade. This year, the parade will march on Sunday afternoon, May 1, to officially kick off the Derby week festivities. Kentucky’s Pegasus Parade is one of the largest in the U.S., and it’s truly an event everyone should experience!
