I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

Woodford Anyone??

We went to the Woodford Reserve Distillery as part of our Kentucky  Bourbon Trail adventures.
Let me tell you it was beyond gorgeous.

Every inch of the property was breathtaking.
As were the barrels full of tasty bourbon.
This is my dad’s favorite liquor so was fun to visit and allow him to see how it’s made, he said the tour only made it even better in his mind. By far the pretties of all the distilleries we visited.

Dream Wedding Destination

I have no groom but that doesn’t mean I can still fantasize about a dream wedding. I am a girl after all!!
This place is called The Lily Barn and it located in Townsend , TN. Hello gorgeous!
 The landscaping was out of this world with every imaginable flower, tree, and bush. Perfect backdrop for pictures and cocktails.

The barns were to die for! The “reception” barn even had a massive stone fireplace. Dreamy!
 The smoky mountains in the background added to the overall beauty.
I need to start landscaping our lil slice of heaven in Niobrara as of yesterday so that someday I could achieve this same level of pretty for that far far away magical wedding.

Snippets of Summer Fun

I have yet to download vaca photos - sad I know. I've been too busy working and having fun. Soaking up every last summer event I can. Such as David Nail at the Knox County Fair

The kick off to our 15 year Class Reunion at the Lewis Central Football game
Re-Lauch of the Leggoons Brand by a  friend during Omaha Fashion Week
Barenaked Ladies at STIR Cove
Still several weeks of summer left so trying to cram in as much as possible! Lots and lots of pretty road trip pictures to share soon though. Otherwise they will forever be lost in the block hole of my computer.

I’m Feeling Crafty

As the weather starts to cool outdoor activities will become less appealing and craft projects will start to entice me.
 I love these cowboy boots! What a fun way to spice up a pair of old boots or even a thrifty find!
I might just have to tackle this one stormy winter day! Thanks Farmers Trophy Wife for the idea, and even more thanks to Stars for Streetlights for actually coming up with this great DIY project.

Home is Beautiful Too!

I was in awe of the Smoky mountains and was lusting after many of the breathtakingly beautiful horse farms in Kentucky. I was almost afraid returning home would be dull, luckily I was instead reminded that home is where the heart is. Even amongst the every day is sparkle and something gorgeous. It's all about taking time to savor the little things.

Final Phone Snaps of the Road Trip

Sadly we are now making the long trek home. Always great to be home but I had such a wonderful week with my parents and grandpa I hate to see the vacation end!

Smoky Mountain Snaps

Yesterday turned out to be a gorgeous weather day and the perfect time to explore a little more of the Smoky Mountains. Their beauty amazes me, you could easily spend days exploring and hiking! We capped off our time in Tennessee with a visit to a Moonshine distillery.
