Kentucky Woman

It's official! Our flights to Louisville are booked! Ten days in Louisville to see Luke and watch lacrosse! Awesome!!

We're staying at the Inn at Woodhaven! Here's a link to their website. We stayed at this bed and breakfast last year ... in the carriage house ... and it was absolutely beautiful ... quaint ... and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in ... with vintage linens, no less!

Last year we stayed in the Derby Room in the Carriage House, which is just behind the main house. I loved it! This year we're staying in the main house in one of the 2nd floor rooms. It's either the Garden Suite (right) or the Master Suite. They're both totally gorgeous!

While in Kentucky, we're going to do a day trip to Paducah! What's in Paducah that's so special you may wonder? Well, let me just tell you that it is THE quilt mecca in the western hemisphere!!! Often called Quilt City USA! It's about a 3 or 4 hours drive from Louisville. We'll poke around there and visit the National Quilt Museum! I haven't done much research yet but I know there will be lots of quilt shops and other artisan type places to see. I'd better plan ahead or I'll be so overwhelmed, I'll end up coming home with nothing more than a brochure! I hope they also have a fish store for Kevin. Poor man.

We also want to tour a Bourbon distillery this time and maybe see if there's another cave nearby to explore.


  1. Hello Missie :)

    Sorry I havent been in touch lately .. life kinda got in the way. And of course, when we take a break from everything we're glued to the tv for the olympic coverage (just like everyone else im sure haha)

    Great news booking your trip, what days are you going? We are hoping to go on or around the 24th of March returning home on the 4th. Will you be there about the same time, hope so .. I've missed you.

    Give Kevin my best .. ttys

    xo Karen

  2. Hi Karen!

    I'm SO excited about going and all the more excited to know that our visits will overlap and that we'll have a chance to hang out a bit! We're planning on being there from March 19th to the 28th.

    It'll be AWESOME!! Can't wait! xoxo

  3. Sweet .. this is great news.

    Do you have anything planned, day trips for the 25th or 26th. Depending on how the flights I finally get work out, it would be nice to go check stuff out together :)


  4. Hey Kentucky buddy!

    So far we don't have anything in particular planned except a day trip to Quilt City, which we will probably do before you get there. But yes, let's DO plan to see some sights together. We haven't even checked out what we might want to see, though we've talked about touring a bourbon distillery, seeing if there's a nearby cave to spelunk, other sporting events that might be going on ... we're pretty open. Let me know what's interesting you.


  5. I think you toured a bourbon distillery last time, didn't you?

  6. We did see one, that means there's probably a dozen to go haha. Definitely we will have to take a look at the surrounding area and see about a day trip somewhere. We will have to make a list :)

    Cant wait to see you both!

  7. Hi Karen,

    Can't wait to hang with ya'll in Kentucky!

    By the way, I just saw this where a certain beloved young man was quoted ...
