  Outlets…we all have them, for better or for worse. What are yours? If you’re like me, you tend to bend toward the Hairbo Gummi Peaches on stressful days instead of pounding the pavement to burn away the bleh. Maybe you do sneak in an extra run or round at the gym when you need […]

Yes, We’d Love To Come To Your Thunder Party [#JustSayYes]

Thunder Over Louisville. Some love it. Some hate it. As an introvert, I used to understand the latter group. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always adored the air show & fireworks…& the eight flavors of funnel cake at the Chow Wagon (#cookiesandcream).
