At 32 years old, it may come as a surprise to many that I haven't been driving for very long. I was a late bloomer when it came to obtaining my driver's license, earning it barely five years ago. Growing up, I had major anxieties and fears surrounding getting behind the wheel. Thankfully, I managed to overcome those reservations and enjoy the bliss of freedom that is driving.

The Commonwealth of Kentucky celebrated its 230th birthday in 2022. When I was a kid, I always took great pride that we made it into the "top 15." I was also a little disappointed that we DIDN'T make it into the original 13 colonies, but Mom explained that we WERE; it's just that Kentucky was part of Virginia.
I haven't camped a whole lot in my lifetime, but I've enjoyed it every single time. There's nothing like cutting yourself off from the world and vegging out. Whether it was in a cabin in a ravine in southwestern New Mexico or on a large plot of land in Grayson County that had to be "bush-hogged" before we could use it, it's an amazing time. (Seriously, at the Grayson County site, NONE of us could get a phone signal. I guess that's what disconnecting and decompressing is all about.)

Love Snow? Then You’ll Love the Winter Forecast from the Farmer’s Almanac for Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois
It's hard to think about winter when we're still in the thick of summer dealing with temperatures in the 90s and heat indices in triple digits, but as long as the Earth keeps revolving around the sun, these days will be behind us in the next month or so as Fall sets in, followed by the chilly temperatures of Winter. And, if what the Farmers' Almanac is predicting for this winter for Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois pans out, we're going to be begging for the hot and humid days of summer to return as quickly as possible.
It took fifty years of my life before I ever saw one of these things. I'll be honest. Until a couple of days ago, I'm not certain I even knew they existed. My friend Jim and I were playing tennis over at Center Court here in Owensboro. Jim will tell you this. Actually, anyone I have ever played tennis with will tell you this. I am a complete freak when it comes to bugs, ants or spiders on a tennis court. If I see one, I will immediately stop playing and try to find a way to get the bug to safety. It's like I practice Jainism. Have you heard of the Jains?

Ever been so hungry you hit the drive-thru and immediately open the bag to shove in a mouth full of burger and fries? Did you know it could be illegal to do that in Kentucky?. Maybe I shouldn't admit in public that I've eaten while driving but it's true. I actually have done it on multiple occasions. I have a busy life and have to be efficient with my time. Now I'm learning this may not have been the best thing to do. I was reading an article from out of Illinois that asked the very same thing of drivers in that state and it got me to thinking I wonder what the law is in Kentucky.
Tiny homes are becoming a trend all over. People are downsizing and destressing their lives. These two Tennessee tiny homes have a rich history and come as a packaged deal. It's always awesome to find out the home you lived in has a story behind it. The tiny homes were built by Mr. Churchwell who owned a Bed & Breakfast at the end of Memory Lane. It almost sounds like a children's storybook doesn't it? Mr. Churchwell built both homes before the 1996 Olympics in hopes that people would come and stay in these homes while they were in town.
I have visited 45 states, but it seems I'm constantly telling you there's THIS thing I haven't done or THAT thing I haven't done. There's so much to DO. That includes cool places to visit right here in my home state of Kentucky. For example, while I've had family members visit Loretta Lynn's childhood home, I've never been there and would like to go.

People go bananas over Buc-ees, and now you can add a stop at Buc-ees onto your Smoky Mountain vacation as they're opening a second Tennessee location!. It seems like everyone online raves about Buc-ees. In fact, the Buc-ees chain is so popular that when my family took a vacation to Fort Morgan, Alabama back in June, my brother tried to plan the exits we took to hit a Buc-ees on the way down. It's that kind of popular! So what makes Buc-ees so popular? According to a quote from Buc-ees general manager, Martin Loya to Austonia simply "we are the Disney of convenience stores."
Do you remember when you could only find Cracker Barrel restaurants along interstate highways? Do you remember when you could only find them in the southern United States?. Well I do. And when my sister and I were kids, one of the things we anticipated most was eating at Cracker Barrel. We didn't have one here; we weren't on an interstate. And, in my mind, anything you could ONLY do on vacation MADE the vacation even more special.

One Kentucky mother of five shares why she takes so many photos of her family and the reason may surprise you or at least make you think twice. Angel here and there are several reasons I take so many photos of my children but one very special reason. I'm a mother of five beautiful kiddos. They range from 19 all the way down to 6. In the almost 20 years I have been a mother I have nearly lost two of my children. Sadly, one of my precious girls was taken by SIDS when she was just shy of two months old.
I've received calls from friends and family members from all across the country this past week. They've been asking if we're all okay here. They're relieved once I explain that all the flooding is hundreds of miles away in eastern Kentucky, but this is an example of how far-reaching this horrible catastrophe has become.
