Why I Love Kentucky

This past weekend I finally got some much-needed nature therapy. Doesn't it always seem like all of your troubles slip away when you go outside and enjoy God's creation? It does for me. Because I live here, I often take for granted the beauty that is Western Kentucky. I somehow manage to go months on end without appreciating the surrounding nature. On Saturday, I was able to get outdoors and enjoy this amazing farm.

7 acres...Yes, 7 acres, of sunflowers. One word: Amazing.

This is my mom's boyfriend, Niki. He's possibly one of the sweetest men I've ever met, and I hope he sticks around:) He's a good fisherman, too. Caught this fish in approximately 2 minutes flat. Yea, yea, we're all very impressed! haha! No, really, I am. You should see his cast. It's like precision perfect.

Niki manages this farm, which is so cool. What a job. We get to go back this weekend. I'm super excited:)



  1. Wow, what a beautiful weekend. Breathtaking scenery, those sunflowers!!! and the horses. Amazing! You are fortunate and we'll all have to live vicariously through you so be sure to post more great pictures. =)
