i’ve always said i hope madison grows up knowing her roots. i want her to know her yankee father & her southern mother. and one thing that i have always adored is the derby. the fashion, the hats, the mint juleps, the horses. it’s not just a sporting event. so in this household we will always celebrate derby with big hats & colorful dresses. someday i’ll take her to experience it first hand. this year, she got to ride a pony at a farm in the spirit of the day. and well, i of had a little bourbon on ice. the sun shines bright on my old kentucky home.
