  • Back where I come from

    Learning to ride a bike. Picking blackberries with my sister. My first “big catch” going fishing at grandpa’s. College days. Marrying my college sweetheart. The birth of my daughter. My son losing his first tooth. Assisting my husband as he coached youth soccer. Cookouts and camping with my parents. Church revivals. Family and friends. 

    All of these memories are etched into the story of my old Kentucky home.
